im not making fun or putting anyone down because of their size . I'm asking a serious Question.

Why are the Majority of cops , especially in this area ( Burke , Caldwell and Catawba County ), and i'm guessing its in the 90% or better range so Fat ? I'm not talking about pudgy or a tad over weight im talking about really fat . Waddling rather than walking , breathing hard from a brisk walk across a parking lot kinda fat .

Doesn't it seem like that to be a police officer there should be standards? Shouldn't there be many , MANY reasons to keep yourself in at the least moderate shape as a public servant paid to protect and serve ?

im no saint but , im also no police officer paid to keep us all safe . Honestly im under what i should weigh for my height and try to watch my what i consume everyday because at one point i was picking up to much weight .

i don't know any of the police rules but it seems to me that once your a police officer you can gain all the weight you want and you can still be a policeman . Correct me if im wrong .

We are made to take a physical, some just have to strap on knee-pads.
