As part of its Officer Wellness and Performance Program, The Ridgefield Police Department endorses and supports the efforts of our officers to keep themselves in exemplary physical condition. One way this is done is through an incentive-based Fitness Test, held several times throughout the year. Officers can volunteer to engage in these events. Standards are set for various events to include the mile and one half run, push-ups, and sit-ups. If the proper standards are reached by each individual officer, time off is granted. There is no punitive measures for not reaching the standards. The Department provides a gymnasium that has free weights, punching bags, kettlebells, etc. which the officers may use as they wish.
