WAUWATOSA, Wisc. — Last week, Wauwatosa police officer Luke Vetter found himself chasing and wrestling a young crime suspect. In a matter of seconds, the boy got on top of him, forcing Vetter to sit up and push the boy off so the officer could take control of the situation.

That kind of physical exertion proves pretty typical during patrols because many suspects resist arrest, so it is important officers are in good shape, he said.
