Bootcamp Wednesdays is a fitness and recruitment program that is held every Wednesday from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at our Public Safety Center located at 5770 Freeport Boulevard.   It is designed to provide participants an opportunity to see what a typical Police Academy fitness regimen is all about.  The exercises will entail circuit style, full body workouts.

 Bootcamp Wednesdays are very beneficial to those who may be interested in a career with the Sacramento Police Department or those who may already be in the hiring process.  It is a great opportunity for participants to network with others and develop relationships with officers from the department.

 Through the program, participants are given the opportunity to build relationships with recruiters and other applicants after the workout.  This program will benefit all who participate by preparing you for the physical demands of the Police Academy.   Come join us!!!  All you need to bring is your running shoes, a positive attitude and a friend! #SacPDStrong
