New Jersey moves to prevent steroid use by policeNew Jersey lawmakers are evaluating measures that could crack down on steroid use by police and firefighters, some of whom abuse steroids in efforts to keep physically fit.

Assemblyman John McKeon, the Deputy Speaker who introduced the bills, said, “This is focused on uniformed public employees, but this is really a nationwide problem.”

The New Jersey Firefighter Mutual Benevolent Association welcomes any initiative to crack down on steroid abuse, said president Bill Lavin.
