Be fit

The modern police environment requires a cop in control of their body. Exhausted cops are less prepared for that one career defining moment. Out-of-shape cops don't just fail to pursue and apprehend perps - their careers are cut short. They burn out mentally or wind up on long term disability.

You can’t serve & protect without your boots on the ground.

It focuses people's attention on what is necessary as a responsibility not only when they get hired, and they're on duty, but also when they're off-duty. This job requires me to be physically fit. It incorporates workouts geared towards our line of work.

The TFT Program showed me that little to no equipment is needed for a solid, well-rounded fitness program. As a member of the Dubuque Police Department's fitness committee, I highly recommend this program.

Learning and seeing the benefits of the TFT Program, I was convinced this program should be part of our Police Certification Curriculum. The TFT Program can assure the Law Enforcement Professionals can survive the physical and mental demands that this essential profession demands.
