MARANA, AZ (Tucson News Now) - The Marana Police Department will be one of the few in the country to institute a new wellness program for its officers. 

Chief Terry Rozema said the purpose of the voluntary “Fit for Duty” program is to encourage the department’s sworn officers to maintain healthy levels of fitness. Officers have the potential to earn rewards based on their performance. 

“The public has a reasonable expectation that those of us who protect them are competent and capable,” Rozema said. “Therefore it’s incumbent on leadership to continually look for ways to ensure our personnel are mentally, emotionally and physically prepared to provide a level of service that exceeds expectations.”

MPD Physical Fitness Instructors conducted a year-long staff study to determine the program standards that were approved by the town of Marana’s Legal Department because they were validated as being job related for law enforcement officers, according to a news release. The program includes an agility course, 300 meter run, bench presses, push-ups, sit ups, vertical leaps and a 1.5 mile run. 

The first physical fitness test will be held Friday, July 18.
