Cancel the doughnuts: Fat cops could be out of the force

OVERWEIGHT cops would be out and retired officers called back on the job under new plans proposed by Victoria's Police Commissioner Ken Lay.

The blue paper for 2015-2020 focuses on getting more officers away from the desks and out patrolling the streets.

Police will be expected to maintain above average levels of fitness and retired detectives will be asked to take on cold case investigations.

The new strategy is also expected to open up more opportunities for "volunteer" policing roles and set targets for ensuring women and people of varying cultural backgrounds are hired to "better represent" the population.
