  • What restrictions in training objectives would an overweight police officer encounter in weaponless self-defense and martial arts training within a police academy?
  • What regulations are imposed on police agencies with regard to physical fitness requirements after completion of initial training?
  • What civil liability, if any, does the agency face if an officer does not maintain a level of physical fitness required of a situation where significant injury or death occurs to a civilian or fellow officer as a direct result of the officer’s level of fitness?
