A group of 20 Blacktown police officers will be defending their title as North West Metropolitan Region Champion Plane Pullers at Richmond RAAF Base on October 13.
The team won the title by moving a 50-tonne RAAF Hercules cargo plane 10 metres in 13.95 seconds at the Law Enforcement Torch Run’s Challenge last year.
They lost to the Public Order and Riot Squad team which came first in 13.90 seconds.
It will be the third year of competition for the group from Blacktown's Local Area Command.
A spokeswoman said they were looking forward to defending their title during the NSW Police Force’s 150th anniversary year.
Each year members of the law enforcement community raise money for the NSW Special Olympics, which provides sporting opportunities for the intellectually disabled.
Law Enforcement Torch Run NSW is a charitable fund that includes officers from the NSW Police Force, Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions, NSW Department of Corrective Services and the Australian Federal Police working together to support Special Olympics NSW.
There were 16 teams competing in the 2011 Plane Pull.
Other winners were: Kings Cross LAC (Fastest NSW Police Team ); RAAF Richmond (Fastest Open Team); Firearms and Organised Crime Squad (Fastest State Crime Command Team); and Kings Cross LAC (Fastest Central Metro Region Team).
Each team must raise $1000 as an entry fee which goes to supporting Special Olympics NSW.
Blacktown police are seeking sponsors and anyone keen to help can contact Sergeant Gordon Stacey or Sergeant Renee Samcou on 9671 9199.
