2020 was an unforgettable year. COVID-19 (Coronavirus) affected practically every part of our daily lives.

As an organization we recognized the impact this unprecedented crisis had on first responders nationwide and particularly the exceptional agencies which attend our competition.

As a direct result of the unique challenges COVID-19 presented, we were forced to cancel ExCon for the first time since its inception.
