Law enforcement officers from across the country will descend upon Olive Branch for a national fitness competition this summer.
The National LawFit Challenge involves a series of fitness and job related events completed by teams and individual officers.
Events include: Bench press, sit-ups, sit and reach flexibility, pull-ups, a 1.5 mile run, and suspect pursuit course.
This year, Olive Branch Police are sending challenges to other area departments through Facebook to participate.
Winners compete for bragging rights, cash, and prizes.
Olive Branch will host the national challenge for the second year, after being home to a regional event in 2011.
This year’s competition is slated for June 13-15.
