This project presents a systematic development and evaluation of programs and methods that can be used to ensure a high level of physical fitness among police personnel. Part I of the manual discusses the research conducted during the experimental portion of the study. Included are the methodology, results of physical fitness evaluation of program volunteers, descriptions of the 20-week experimental exercise programs, results and discussion of the 20-week experimental exercise programs, attitudes and perceptions toward health and physical fitness, and results of a national survey. Part II discusses implementation: administrative considerations, legal issues, and the recommended programs. This final section of the manual is an annotated bibliography. Appendixes contain a medical history questionnaire, an informed consent form, and an aerobics exercise log.This final section of the manual is an annotated bibliography.
