Inter­est­ed in a career with Vic PD

If you are con­sid­er­ing apply­ing to become a police offi­cer, it is your respon­si­bil­i­ty to suc­cess­ful­ly com­plete the Police Offi­cer Phys­i­cal Abil­i­ty Test (POPAT). To be com­pet­i­tive in the appli­ca­tion process appli­cants must strive to obtain a com­pet­i­tive time. The POPAT is a demand­ing phys­i­cal test which must be com­plet­ed in under 4 min­utes and 15 seconds.

Join Vic PD’s recruit­ing sergeant, Sgt Greg Holmes, on June 24 for this fun event to learn more about the appli­ca­tion process and the POPAT. Par­tic­i­pants will learn the fun­da­men­tal skills to com­plete each stage of the POPAT, the mind set one must have when run­ning the test, and the tips that will help you be suc­cess­ful. Each par­tic­i­pant will have a hands on oppor­tu­ni­ty to become famil­iar with the agili­ty run, the phys­i­cal con­trol sim­u­la­tor, the vault sta­tion, and the weight carry.
