Physical Fitness

Physical agility is a critical component to the success of both a police recruit and officer. The first step in the process is successfully completing a physical agility test and scaling a six foot wall.

The physical agility test is based upon the Cooper Physical Fitness Standards and is comprised of a one-and-a-half mile timed run, timed sit-ups, and pushups to failure. The age and gender based physical agility standards are below.
