SAUK RAPIDS — The St. Cloud SWAT team is sending ten members to compete in the 2013 World Police-Fire Games in Belfast, Ireland.

They held a spaghetti dinner Thursday night at the Sauk Rapids VFW to raise money for their trip in August.

Last year the team competed in the Can-Am Police Fire Games where they took the Gold Medal. Police Sergeant, Marty Sayre says he had a bet with St. Cloud Mayor, Dave Kleis.
