He was participating in the training when he collapsed at about 8:00 am. He was transported to St. Jude Medical Center where he remained until passing away early the following morning.
Officer Ackerman had served as a full-time officer with the Buena Park Police Department for six years and had previously served as a reserve officer for four years. He is survived by his daughter, mother, and sister.

A 31-year-old Buena Park police officer who showed signs of fatigue during a training exercise died Saturday at an Orange County hospital, authorities said.

Officer Daniel Ackerman was participating in a SWAT physical fitness test Friday at about 8:15 a.m. when he was rushed to St. Jude Medical Center in Fullerton, Buena Park Cpl. Andy Luong said. He died about 3:40 a.m. Saturday.

Ackerman, a resident of Irvine, appeared to be in good physical shape. “We just don’t know until the autopsy is completed,” Luong said.

Ackerman began with the department as a police Explorer in October 1995 and became a reserve officer in April 2001. He was hired full-time in June 2005. He is survived by his mother, sister and 2-year-old daughter.

The SWAT fitness test takes place every six months and involves an obstacle course and distance running.
