Background: This workout is dedicated to Sgt. George Phillip Moskowitz, 57, who died on December 31, 2019 after suffering a medical emergency while on duty.

According to Police Chief Erin Schaible, one of his colleagues found him unconscious in the police station’s locker room, late that afternoon, called for help and immediately started performing CPR on him. Other officers also rushed to lend a hand and used an automated external defibrillator (AED). Fire Department EMTs responded, as well, but were unable to revive Moskowitz.

Moskowitz served with the Fairfax County Police Department @fairfaxcountypd for a quarter century, retiring as a second lieutenant. He then joined the ranks of Fairfax City’s police @fairfaxcitypd in 2011 as a school resource officer (SRO). Moskowitz was later promoted to sergeant in 2016 and assigned to patrol. He was a patrol supervisor until his most recent assignment in the department’s Community Services Division. He would have been 58 in February, 2020.

The workout was designed by the Fairfax City Police Department (Virginia, USA) to commemorate the 1st year anniversary of Sgt. Moskowitz end of watch. It has been dubbed “The Stache” to remember his epic facial hair.
