Cops and donuts

Sunday, January 24, 2010 at 3:04 pm

There’s a misconception out there that all cops eat donuts, are overweight and out of shape. In my particular department, 90 percent of the officers were in shape and cared about their health and appearance. But for me, especially as a 5′ 4″ 120 pound woman, I wanted my fellow officers to know that I would be in the best shape I could be to be a help to them and our community. I applaud all departments that establish officer guidelines for speed and strength. Too often it’s only the SWAT team members who are prepared to deal with the people and obstacles that the police face every day. Clearly police work is physical. And the officers who are on the job should be too.
