    I recently received a message asking about strength and conditioning for law enforcement, specifically a SWAT breacher. Below is my reply on my thoughts on it.

    Hey (insert silly false name here to protect identity), first off thanks for protecting your local citizens every day. It's a job not many respect until they need you.

    Here's my philosophy on Law enforcement training in general. For a patrol officer, the most common thing they will be doing is slinging people not objects. You already do MMA, just make sure you include grappling of your choice that meshes with your dept policies and programs. So that could be considered your strength work. Now for operator duties you'll need a little bit extra juice for breaching, carrying around extra weight, assaulting objectives, mental clarity for long periods during a stand off, etc. For that you can work in any quality strength program. Joe DeFranco, Jim Smith/Diesel Crew, Dan John, Alwyn Cosgrove, Charles Staley are all excellent choices.
