In the News: 50 Year Old Correctional Officer Dies After Fitness Test

Robert Goodley had been a correctional officer at a prison in Houston, Texas for 19 years.  He died on April 2 after experiencing a heart attack as a result of his participation in a newly introduced fitness testing program. The program was a part of in-service training in the facility at which Goodley worked.

The prison had recently introduced new fitness standards for would-be employees that required them to perform push-ups, sit-ups, deep squats, a quarter-mile walk or run and other exercises before being admitted to the Texas Department of Criminal Justice academy. Current employees would not be required to pass the test until next year, but Goodley and others were being “familiarized” with the test as a part of training. The full article can be read here.

Physical fitness is very important for law enforcement and correctional officers. Not only is the Police Academy physically challenging, your day to day work on the job will be equally as strenuous. If you are preparing for a career in law enforcement or corrections, you will want to start working out as soon as possible so that you will be ready for the physical challenges that you will be faced with.
