"No pain, no gain" as LCSO completes quarterly Physical fitness testing & defensive tactics training.

All LCSO Deputy Sheriffs and Corrections Officers are required to take a quarterly physical fitness assessment aimed at improving overall fitness levels and job performance. The assessment consists of a timed 1.5 mile run, push ups in 1 minute, and sit-ups in 1 minute. Standards are grouped by age and gender.

This was followed by a full day of defensive tactics training to better enable officers to ensure their safety in violent encounters. Officers also received their annual training and recertifications in the use of an expandable straight baton.

Upcoming annual training will be on the use of OC (pepper spray) and the X26 TASER.
