    I need some words of wisdom dude. 2 months ago, I applied for the police department here and today I took the initial entrance exam. I just passed it and now Im scheduled to take the physical fitness test on saturday. Im excited but nervous too and this just feels like an outer force is moving me through this. Hell, I was even expired on my parking for 2 hours and didnt get a ticket!!

    I don't know if the test is different in the states than in Canada but our test, PARE, is really easy for anyone with any physical ability. If you can jog without blowing your lungs out of your ass you should be fine.

    Congrats man. Being a Police Officer is one of the most rewarding jobs there is. On your run just take it slow starting off and build up to a good speed. Try not to blow yourself out of the water in the first mile. Eat some good whole grain pasta the night before the run at around 7pm it will give you some good energy in the morning. What all do you havee to do on this PT test?

    From what I read on their website: we have to do a number of sit-ups in under a minute, a number of push -ups in under a minute, they check our vertical, the 1.5 mile run, and the final part involves springting a certain number of yards, jumping over a 5 ft. wall, picking up a 120lb. dummy and dragging it to the finish line.

    Well, remember once you're a cop to not ticket anyone with an autobot logo on their car. : P

    That sounds like a straight forward post certification PT test. Mine was
    1.5 miles in 15 minutes
    22 push ups 1 min
    35 sit ups 1 min
    obsticle course(run 100 yards, pull 150 lbs dummy 20 ft, 3 sets of monkey bars, and the fence jump, and climb into a window) 3:15 min.
    My SWAT PT test was alot worse than this. I hated it.
    Like I said if you are good shape you should have no problem, Just remember to breath right(combat breathing is best for running I think) and slowly work your way up to a good speed. Again good luck and let us know how it goes.

    Well, I didnt do too well and the retake is scheduled for the 21st of this month. After talking bout it with the wife, my heart is not really into it, though I do want to move from my current job. I appreciate the support though, it really meant alot to me. Well, Im off to a friend's bachelor party
