Police dispatchers use treadmills at work

Friday, January 10, 2014

A Sheriff's department in Kansas has found a way to help keep it's 911 dispatchers alert and in shape at the same time.

Workers now have the option of walking on a treadmill.

The Sheriff's department says it added the machines because dispatchers can't leave their work stations.

For safety reasons there is no running or jogging allowed but if a dispatcher wants to stop, all they have to do is push a button.
