Steroid testing by law enforcement agencies is limited, and a random testing program used by Phoenix police was eliminated in 2015.

As far as much of the public is concerned, steroids and other so-called performance-enhancing drugs are associated with bodybuilders and athletes.

However, John Hoberman, a professor at  University of Texas, Austin, says it’s a significant issue among police.

Hoberman’s extensive research is evident in his book "Dopers in Uniform: The Hidden World of Police on Steroids."
