It is the responsibility of each applicant to possess an acceptable level of physical readiness which insures that the applicant is, at all times, at a level of physical readiness necessary to perform the essential tasks of a police officer.
In order to insure that each applicant can perform his/her duties safely and effectively without undue risk to themselves or the public, the applicant is required to take a Physical Fitness Test as part of the selection procedures. This test was designed using the guidelines of the "American College of Sports Medicine" and the "Cooper Institute for Aerobics Research."
The test battery consists of:
300 METER RUN - 66 SECONDS
SIT UPS - 30 REP
PUSH UPS - 25 REP
VERTICAL JUMP - 15.5 INCHES
1.5 MILE RUN - 15 MINUTES 54 SECONDS
Each test is preceded by a warm-up or rest period, with mandatory cool-down period at the conclusion of the tests.
