The NYPD is being dragged down by overweight cops and the brass isnt doing anything about the ballooning problem, police sources told The Post.
We really are the worlds largest police department, said one veteran cop whos worked in Manhattan, Brooklyn and The Bronx.
Were the fattest police department in the country
because we have no requirement to stay in shape.

Unions. End of story.
Hey NYC Mayor -——— Outlaw Donuts and Pizza Joints!
That it’ll take off 10#’s off every cop in two weeks.
And close “Cop Bars” except for Saturday nights when they take their girl friends out and keep them open on Sunday afternoons for the “family activities with their wives and kids”.
Fire Dept. doesn’t have unions?
Hard to believe cops can be obese. A bit overweight, who cares, as long as they are strong. But obese?
Dog shooting crossfit?
Calvin Coolidge as Mayor of Boston broke a police union. It was the right thing to do. It won him the Presidency a few years later
“Dragged down...” “ballooning problem...”
I’m there every day and I very, very rarely see an overweight officer. Fake News!
Andy Sipowitcz had a little girth to him.
Yup, public unions must be outlawed. The taxpayers are not represented.
The times I have been on bases I always see people running. IIRC the military has a fitness requirement or a PT one.
I worked corrections for 28 years, 16 as manager. Every now and then a fitness requirement would be discussed. The bureaucrats in HR and attorneys said we couldn’t impose a standard because obviously people who are fat would get the job done.
IN Cal if a peace officer has a heart attack it is presumed yo be job related. i was overweight and I had a heart attack and returned wth a medical retirement giving tax break and life time insurance guaranteed.
This is a tough thing to get implemented. Good luck.
I truly think the word “obesity” is overused. People with more muscle mass will weigh more than the BMI chart allows. Other people can be a bit overweight but not “obese.”
I’m beginning to wonder if this fake “obese” shaming is to get Americans to be skinny helpless victims who are weakened.
(And yes, of course, there are the actual obese, but I do think this term is overused.)
Very sad! For those who are required to sit through a shift, it’s very difficult for them to make themselves exercise afterward. Many of us have been there for one job or another. Don’t like to see them just waiting for heart attacks.
We need to implement healthy diet and endurance exercise programs for them and for everyone else.
“We need to implement healthy diet and endurance exercise programs for them and for everyone else.”
Who is “we?” The government? Others?
Do we need to implement a healthy diet and endurance exercise programs for anyone else? How is this any different than what the libs want to dictate?
No thanks, lol. I don’t need you or the govt telling me what to eat or how/when to exercise. I’m capable of being fit all on my own.
Ha ha, it sounds like Michelle Obama’s school food program.
When my Father was a NYPD Cop in the 40-60s you had to be in shape and weigh within ten pounds of health statistics.
It’s an economy grower. For the donut shops.
