Federal agencies that employ law enforcement personnel often promote health and wellness programs to help officers meet and maintain required physical fitness standards. These programs also help to reduce the stress that often accompanies employees who work in hazardous or dangerous occupations. Federal Occupational Health’s (FOH) Law Enforcement Wellness/Fitness Program promotes health and safety on the job and supports officers’ efforts to maintain required fitness standards.
