Delco police officer makes SWAT Challenge top 10

Law enforcement has been dying for some time now. Officers across the country have risked their lives to protect and serve during this pandemic.

All of these men and women serving our communities deserve a ton of recognition and that’s exactly what a Pennsylvania law enforcement officer gets.

According to 6abc, a police officer, Chris Signore, who is with the Newtown Township Police Department in Delaware County, placed in the “top ten in the National SWAT Fitness Challenge.”

From what we learned about 6abc, this challenge was not easy. This required Officer Chris Signore to do an “800-meter sprint, followed by a 400-meter sprint with weights.” That’s not all. Chris Signore also told 6abc that other challenges he faced included “burpees, jump squats and pull-ups. Most were done with a gas mask, no filter, full gear.”

On the National Tactical Officers Association website, it shows that there are a total of 5 different tests.

It sounds like a ton of physical labor. Personally, I probably wouldn’t even get to half the challenge.

It was stated on 6abc that the National Tactical Officers Association SWAT Fitness Qualification Test was first broadcast nationwide in 2021. It all started in April 2021.

Chris Signore told 6abc that he hopes these challenges will motivate others to join different police departments to serve and make a difference in communities.

To all law enforcement officers, thank you for your service.
