The Carmel Police Department serves the city of Carmel, Indiana and its more than 105,000 residents. Since 1996, the department has been an internationally accredited law enforcement agency with about 140 sworn officers. Because these officers need to be prepared for strenuous activities that can happen at any time, their physical fitness is a top priority.
