Good question. I am a firefighter by profession so I have a slightly different mission than you, but . . . I truly believe that firefighters and police officers are really professional athletes except we don't get a schedule of our games or a couple of hours to warm up before the game. So, firefighters and police officers must be in the best physical condition possible. We really need to change our "culture" and make it unacceptable to be out of shape!
Here are two workouts I put together based on CrossFit's "Fight Gone Bad". One was for my fire department, the other for my martial art class.
Basically "Fight Gone Bad" (FGB) is three (or five) rounds of five tasks for a minute each with a minute rest between rounds. The original FGB consists of 60 seconds of rowing on a Concept II rowing machine followed by 60seconds of Wall Ball with a 20 pound medicine ball followed by 60 seconds of 75 pound Sumo Dead lift High Pull followed by 60 seconds of 20 inch box jump followed by 60 seconds of 75 pound Push Press and then 60 seconds of rest. The way you score FGB is by counting the calories burned on the rowing machine and then the number of reps for all the other tasks.
The first time I did FGB I knew it was an awesome workout for firefighters. It is full body, intense, and anyone can do it because you go as hard as you can go.
Back at the fire station I had a few guys go through it and they loved it, but we decided to make a FGB that was super job related. We picked five firefighting tasks that we could reproduce and count. The tasks we picked were hanging a 24' extension ladder on the side of a fire engine, dragging a rescue dummy around some cones, hitting a Kaiser Force Machine (simulates chopping a hole with an axe), pulling ceiling with a pike pole, and carrying a house bundle up and down a flight of stairs. The firefighters do each task for a minute and when they complete the circuit they get a minute rest. We count the reps. to score it. I have them in full turnout gear "on air".
For the martial art class I did the same thing except I used jab cross sprawl on the heavy bag, front kick squat front kick squat on "Bob", SPEAR push ups, knee on stomach spin one two punch, knee on stomach spin one two punch, and close quarter form sit ups. Again, we count the reps to score.
I think if you pick some things that officers need to do on a regular basis and put them into a circuit having them work as hard as they can for a minute on five tasks and then a minute break, you will have a great work out.
We also use some of the standard CrossFit workouts without modification. We have also done some team workouts pairing two firefighters up (always the shortest with the tallest or lightest with the heaviest) and having them as a team do 100 pull-ups or, flip a big truck tire a certain distance.
Hope this gives you some ideas. If you need more specific details about the particular "tasks" I have used feel free to ask.
