Workout With a Cop held to recruit potential officers

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – Imagine working out with the men and women who keep you safe. That’s exactly what Bowling Green residents had the unique opportunity to do on Thursday night at the Bowling Green Athletic Club.

The Bowling Green Police Department hosted the Workout With a Cop event in an effort to recruit more officers while offering a more unique and informal recruiting event than previous ones.

This was the first year the event was held.

The goal was to let the community see how officers prepare for the physical demands that come with the job.

Participants went through a circuit of 7 different exercises for 2 to 3 rounds, but in the end, it was all about giving it a try.
