New Fitness Equipment Supports Well-being of Local Law Enforcement

  • Local Champion: City of Libby
  • Date Funded: June 27, 2023
  • Grant Amount: $16,840

The Libby police department has been significantly understaffed for months and has lacked the resources to retain officers. The problem partially stems from a lack of fitness equipment at the station, as regular exercise is one of the most effective strategies for managing the stress associated with police work, and increased fitness has been shown to reduce injuries, support job longevity, and improve decision-making among officers, which benefits the entire community. To address the issue the police chief approached the LOR Foundation with a solution: securing equipment that would help support the physical and mental wellbeing of new recruits. With LOR’s help, the police department purchased workout equipment, which will also be available for use by the sheriff, deputies, fire department, and local State troopers.
