The Lethbridge Police Service is recruiting more female officers. The LPS is doing so by offering a four day boot camp to help new female recruits hone their physical fitness and craft in the field. Only 12 per cent of officers within the LPS are female. Staff Sgt. Christy Woods says the force wants to provide more of an opportunity for women to join and become police officers as they prepare for the Alberta Physical Readiness Evaluation for Police Officers test.
LPS has partnered with CrossFit Framework to host four group personal training sessions that will put potential female candidates through their paces and help improve their confidence as they approach APREP testing day. Each boot camp will include a combination of strength and cardio exercises and there will also be an opportunity to connect with police recruiters who will be helping to coach the sessions.
Boot camps will start December 3 & 11, 2021 and January 4 & 20, 2022 with space for 12 participants.
