Physical Fitness Coordinator
The law enforcement profession increasingly uses physical fitness as a performance measure. The professional must understand fitness assessments and standards, absolute cut point fitness scores and referencing normative data. Using fitness testing scores is critical as a qualifying factor in the hiring process and in the ability to assess officers who are currently employed by the department.
Sergeant Stephen Coomer is currently the Wylie Police Department Physical Fitness Coordinator. He is tasked with developing a fitness testing program that encompasses a way to test the abilities of each officer in the department to ensure the department remains in peak physical condition. Being in good physical condition is a required part of our job and fitness is a top priority for our department.
