The Florence Township Chief of Police, John Bunce is very involved in eating properly and physical fitness. Other command staff officers are on the same page, and the Chief encourages police officers to participate. As part of the Wellness Program, the Chief came up with the idea of implementing a Wellness Center in the Police Department, and doing away with the vending machine and other items that discourage fitness. The Chief had an overwhelming positive response from the officers.
A break room was designed to include a commercial blender, microwave, and refrigerator. On a white board, “Smoothie of the Day” is listed with necessary ingredients supplied. In addition, healthy snack options are available for purchase giving the Officers healthier alternatives when on shift.
