What is the physical fitness requirement?

Our physical fitness requirement can be found here. After passing the written examination, candidates will be given information about taking the physical fitness test ("PT test") with our contracted service provider. Candidates can set-up an appointment to take the test at their convenience.  The PT test must be completed before the start of the background investigation.  The background investigation may begin anywhere from 3-8 weeks or longer after the written test.
