The NYPD is apparently having an issue with fat cops, according to anonymous sources within New York’s Finest who spoke with the New York Post.
“We really are the world’s largest police department,” said one veteran cop who’s worked in all over the city. “We’re the fattest police department in the country…because we have no requirement to stay in shape.”
Another source then went on to say that fat officers are little more than liabilities, especially for their partners.
“If you have a 300-pound partner who can’t even run up a flight of stairs. It’s dangerous for everybody,” he said.
“You see some of these officers out there: They’re fat, they’re sloppy, they’re disgusting and they’re not healthy,” yet another source added.
While the FDNY has comprehensive annual physicals and fitness tests, the NYPD apparently has no such series of efficiency programs after police leave the academy.
According to the New York Post, some police are so overweight, they struggle to buckle into their patrol cars.
