SYLVESTER, GA (WALB) – A South Georgia police force is getting fit for duty and for life.

Thursday afternoon officers and staff at the Sylvester Police Department took to the fields at Worth County High School.

About two dozen workers went through drills to get into better shape.

The group has been working out with trainers for the past five weeks. Trainers hope this course spreads to other police departments.

This was one of the final sessions for the Sylvester Police Department, but many of the officers now have gym memberships and say they're committed to continue working out on their own.
