SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Teams of law enforcement officers in South Dakota will be competing this week in two tournaments for the title of 2015 Battle of the Badges Champion.

Police officers, deputy sheriffs, correctional officers, troopers and federal agents will take part in a golf tournament Friday and softball tournament Saturday.

The Minnehaha County Deputies Association says the event allows law enforcement and correctional officers from the region to come together to remember fallen officers.

The association says donations from sponsors make the tournaments possible. Any extra funds are then given to the families of fallen officers, as well as the South Dakota Special Olympics and other groups.

The Grand Falls Casino and Resort in Iowa will host the golf tournament. The softball tournament will be held at Harmodon Park in Sioux Falls.
