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:

  • 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, which is less than 4 minutes worth of running and is the minimum level required. This equates to a total running distance of 525m
