VIDEO: Texas Agency Implements Innovative Officer Wellness Program

Cedar Park (TX) Police Chief Sean Mannix is implementing what he calls the most comprehensive wellness program in the country. He is aiming to improve everything from an officer's mental health to how they manage their finances and he says all of this will make officers better to serve the public.

Mannix has partnered with Dr. Joe Serio to conduct that training. Serio will teach the 85 sworn personnel a class called "Fear and Emotional Intelligence."

Physical health matters too. For the first time Chief Mannix will require officers to adhere to a fitness standard either by completing an obstacle course or a low impact rowing test once a year, Fox 7 Austin reports.

Cardiologist Dr. Jon Sheinberg, who is also a reserve officer, will stay on top of each officer's heart health. He says heart disease is one of the top causes of mortality among officers.

"What I want for all of them is to make it to a happy, healthy retirement," said Mannix.
