The Murrieta Police Department is excited to be hosting a CrossFit Law Enforcement Application Course at our station
on Saturday, April 22nd, 2018.
The goal of the CrossFit Specialty Course: Law Enforcement Application is to educate the Officer on the application of CrossFit for the Law Enforcement profession. Attendees will learn how Law Enforcement Agencies have successfully implemented a CrossFit program into their Academies and In-Service training days.
The Seminar includes information on how to create a successful non-profit CrossFit Law Enforcement Affiliate. Attendees receive data, operational plans and talking points for accurate representation of CrossFit to their Administrators and peers. Lectures include programming, Law Enforcement training context, case studies and nutrition, as well as physical instruction on foundational CrossFit movements and their direct application to the demands of the Law Enforcement Profession. The day includes two team building workouts and an opportunity for Officers to network and forge winning partnerships between Agencies.

The Murrieta Police Department encourages its Officers to maintain a high level of physical fitness in order to meet the many unexpected demands of the job and to best serve the community we protect. Police work can be physically demanding and Officer fitness is critical to the effectiveness of any law enforcement agency.
The police department maintains a CrossFit certified gym for Officers to work out in. In 2013, the Murrieta Police Officers Association took on the challenge of updating the gym and its equipment. Using funds from association dues, the gym was turned into a CrossFit style workout space with an emphasis on functional fitness.
The MPD gym is recognized as an official non-profit CrossFit affiliate and we have two Officers who volunteer their time as certified CrossFit trainers. They post the WOD (Workout of the Day) here on this page for Officers to follow and any CrossFitters in our community are welcome to follow them as well.
In addition to the daily WOD, the physical fitness qualification for the SWAT team is listed below for those who want to give it a try. The SWAT qualification is conducted in two parts. Part 1 has a 15:00 minute time cap and includes a 1 mile run followed by 15 dead hang pull ups, 50 sit ups and 50 push ups. Part 2 has a 3:00 minute time cap and includes a 15 foot rope climb followed by a 155 pound sled pull for 100 meters.
Please note: Officers are encouraged to use the gym facility but it is not mandatory by policy.
