Fitness Test

Police Officer, PCSO and Special Constable candidates are required to pass a fitness test. You will have a maximum of three attempts to pass this test with a period of approximately six weeks between each attempt. If you are not successful at the third and final attempt you will have to wait a period of six months before re-applying.


The fitness test will consist of the following elements:

  • Warm up to level 3 on a 15m Shuttle Run (bleep test) followed by a series of lower body stretches.
  • Endurance fitness test - 15m Shuttle Run (bleep test) up to level 5.4. Level 5.4 is less than 4 minutes worth of running and this is the minimum level required. This equates to a total distance of 525m which is less than one and a half times around a 400m athletics track.

Police Officer Recruitment is now open and you can register for eligibility. Registration will close at 5pm on 18 December 2017.
