Oxford Police Department Finishes in Second Place in National Fitness Challenge
Oxford Police Department Major Jeff McCutchen, Sergeant Ben Hamilton, Sergeant Joshua Shipp, Corporal Zach Anderson, and Officer Jeremiah Brown competed in the 17th Annual National Law Fit Challenge last week in Desoto County, Mississippi. The Law Fit Challenge consists of a maximum bench press, one minute timed sit-up, flexibility test, pull-ups, a 1.5 mile run, and a 200 yard agility course. There were 130 competitors from all across the country.
“This was the second time that the Oxford Police Department has finished 2nd in the national completion,” said Major McCutchen. “We are really proud of all the hard work that the guys put in going into the challenge. This is the fifth time the OPD 4-man team has finished in the Top 5 nationally.”
“Chief East has promoted an atmosphere of staying physically fit since taking over in 2013,” McCutchen said. “We would like to thank him and our sponsors: Oxford GNC, Oxford Nutrishop, and Peak Specialist for giving us the time and resources to compete.”
Among the list of awards won by OPD are: 2nd Place 4-man team, 3rd place 2-man team, 5th place 2-man team, 4th and 5th place overall individuals, 1st and 3rd place sit-ups, 4th place in 1.5 mile run, 2nd and 5th place in sit-and-reach, 3rd and 5th place in pull-ups, and the Rookie of the Year (Jeremiah Brown).
