The rigors of police work will challenge your mental and physical strength.
Yet, there are things we do as an organization to help you.
That’s where our Wellness Program comes in. We invest in a holistic approach to your health so you can be at your best.
Our Flex Program allows Officers and Dispatchers to spend one hour during their 11-hour shift working out.
Not only do we carve out the time, we also provide the facilities and equipment to help our staff stay in tip-top shape.
At Fremont PD, you’ll have access to:
- On-site gym
- Personal trainer (every Wednesday)
- Professional grade workout equipment
- Outdoor fitness area
- Basketball court
- Locker rooms
- Clean towels
- Drinking water
We sweat the small stuff so you don’t have to.
24/7 Healthy Foods Marketplace
Forgot to bring lunch? Feel like a quick snack after an afternoon meeting?
With 24/7 access to healthy options, you no longer have to choose between “fasting” and fast food while working a graveyard shift.
Peer Support for Employees and Family Members
Everyone has bad days when they just want to talk to someone.
Our Peer Support Program is an informal, private opportunity, available 24 hours a day for you to speak to a Peer Support Team Member — someone who has been in your shoes.
The Peer Support Team will assist you with any issues you may be having during and after a critical incident, or while you’re going through a difficult time in life.
Your loved ones also have access to peer support. We’re here to help you clarify your concerns and explore your available resources.
Employee Assistance Program (EAP)
When you or your family members need a professional counseling service, the City-sponsored Employee Assistance Program (EAP) offers five face-to-face counseling sessions and unlimited telephone consultations.
Additionally, the City EAP provides guidance and referrals via telephone to help with all sorts of work and life challenges, such as:
- Financial Service (credit counseling, debt and budgeting assistance, financial planning for college, retirement planning, etc.)
- Legal Service (personal and family law, real estate, etc.)
- Work-life Balance (identifying childcare and eldercare resources, finding a reliable plumber, etc.)
Our volunteer Chaplain provides non-denominational spiritual and emotional support to our employees and their families.
Planning for the future is not easy, and we want to help you stay financially fit.
In addition to the financial services provided by the City EAP, we arrange 1:1 meetings with Nationwide or ICMA representatives on a monthly basis to help employees plan for retirement.
