GARLAND (CBSDFW.COM) – The U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation released a new statistic, which states 8 out of every 10 law enforcement members are overweight.
Their findings have spurred the Garland Police Department to make a plan for their officers to improve their fitness.
“I think it’s important for all of us to keep the weight down and stay in shape — especially this job. The stress that we incur at this job… this is a great way to relieve the stress and to keep the blood pressure down,” said Garland Assistant Chief Jeff Bryan.
Bryan said he spends most of his time at work behind a desk, but still hits the department’s on-site gym three days a week.
Researchers have said law enforcement personnel are 25 times more likely to die from weight-related cardiovascular disease than the actions of a criminal.
Improving health and lifestyle can be simple with guidance and a plan. Join the hundreds of Officers that have taken control of their health and increased sleep and energy that they found improved their job performance.
