Chubby Texas state troopers who don’t shrink their waists could be removed from law enforcement duties | app

AUSTIN, Texas — More than 200 state troopers will have to lose weight by the end of the year or face discipline under a controversial policy the Texas Department of Public Safety enforces to limit the size of the officers.

According to documents obtained by The Dallas Morning News, men with waist sizes over 40 inches and women over 35 inches are now required to track and share their weight loss efforts with DPS.
