CMPD Recruit Dies During PT

Heartfelt condolences to the family of Jeremy Moseley 

From WBTV: 

A Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department candidate died after collapsing during a training Tuesday.

CMPD says newly hired police candidates were conducting a state-mandated physical fitness training when a police candidate, 29-year-old Jeremy Moseley, collapsed. It happened around 8:30 a.m.

Charlotte Fire Department officials tended to Moseley. Medic took him to Carolinas Medical Center where he was pronounced dead, CMPD says.

The Medical Examiner’s Office is working to determine cause of death. CMPD hired Moseley last Monday.

Anyone who has ever seen them PT the new recruits knew this was coming at some point. Working them in the heat, in vests, doing crossfit...really? I'm pretty sure the state didn't mandate that.

Well Anon 4:19.... I think I can clear it up for you. If you cant run in the heat with a vest on during training then its going to be pretty tough to run in the heat while wearing a vest, a dark polyester uniform, boots, and a utility belt while chasing thugs thru the streets of Charlotte.....

Well Anon 12:37... I think I can CLEAR IT UP for you. Osha just fined CMPD $7000 for a SERIOUS violation for making recruits work out in high heat, high humidity, with no water, with break discouraged, while wearing bullet proof vests... So the old argument that they "might have to chase someone someday so lets abuse them now" is bullshit! Training should NEVER be abuse!
