Health - Physical and Mental Fitness

The Police Health - Physical and Mental Fitness topic provides cops with videos, training drills and expert advice to help ensure the officer’s head is straight and body is strong. Complete physical and psychological fitness - through regular trips to the gym, five-mile runs, and conversations with the police psychologist - is critical for an officer to perform the job to maximum potential.
