FBI Finds that 8 Out of 10 Cops are Overweight

Posted By on Fri, Aug 15, 2014 at 10:30 AM



This shouldn't come as a shock to anyone, but the men and women in blue have it rough. Most of a police officer's life is behind a desk, contrary to what you might believe or see in the movies. The Federal Bureau of Investigations have found that 8 out of 10 officers are over weight, according to CBS Dallas Fort Worth.

From CBS:
Bryan said he spends most of his time at work behind a desk, but still hits the departments 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.

“When you’re in a life or death struggle, you’ve got to win that fight, said Bryan about the importance of keeping fit.
But an estimated 80 percent of law enforcement officers are overweight, according to the FBI.
