Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to create a nutrition curriculum for law enforcement officers, with the target of increasing the knowledge of officers regarding nutrition and health. The goals of this project were to increase the knowledge of the officers, provide general nutrition information, emphasize nutrition and its role in diet related diseases, and allow for discussion of nutrition related topics and concerns.

The nutrition education program consists of three sessions: general nutrition information, disease prevention and physical activity, and guidance for eating out at restaurants or away from home. The program was developed after a review of literature demonstrated elevated risk of heart disease among' law enforcement. An expert-review panel reviewed all content and provided direction and feedback. The final curriculum was not pilot tested. Evaluation documents were created to allow participants to assess the usefulness of each session upon implementation of the program.
