Abilene residents can rest assured that the men protecting them are in peak shape. The S.W.A.T team received free screening from Abilene Regional Medical Center today. The idea began with a cardiologist looking to give back to the community, since the department does not provide regular screening for the S.W.A.T. men. Dr. LaNoard Bayouth says, "This is actually something Ive wanted to do for a long time...giving back to the community with a community service, and this is my skill." Officer Weems of the Abilene Police Department says he "wants the community to be sure that the S.W.A.T. team isnt just well-trained, but physically fit." Fitness and cardiac tests were run on the officers. Dr. Bayouth is pleased to have achieved his goal, saying, "Im really excited...if we can keep healthy men on the force, well have men on the force longer. I think its a win-win for everyone." The Abilene Police Department puts higher demands on S.W.A.T. members to remain physically fit.
