TAMUC Law Enforcement Cadets Participate in Research Study

Cadets in the Hunt County Sheriff's Office Law Enforcement Academy located at A&M-Commerce recently participated in a research study to determine how fitness parameters change for academy cadets over the course of their training.

The study was conducted by Michael Oldham, Ph.D., Vipa Bernhardt, Ph.D., and Hussein Jabai in the Department of Health and Human Performance. The cadets were measured on static and functional mobility, grip strength, anaerobic power, lower body flexibility and aerobic endurance. Data collected from the academy's participation and other police and fire academies throughout Texas will serve to develop specific strength and conditioning programming for basic training.

The next cohort of cadets will begin classes in November. To learn more, or sign up for the law enforcement academy, contact [email protected]. Follow the academy on Facebook.
