The Physical Ability Assessment

Passing the Physical Ability Assessment is a prerequisite for candidacy with every police department in the State of Connecticut.  The Physical Ability Assessment was adopted by the Police Officer Standards and Training Council of the State of Connecticut and includes the following four components:

 

Muscular Endurance Sit Up The score is the number of bent leg sit-ups performed in one minute. This is a measure of the muscular endurance of the abdominal muscles. It is an important area for performing police tasks that may involve the use of force. 

Flexibility Sit And Reach Test The “sit and reach” test measures the flexibility of the lower back and hamstrings and the candidate’s range of motion. The test involves stretching out to touch the toes and beyond with extended arms from the sitting position. The score is in inches reached on a yardstick with a 15-inch mark being at the toes and the 36-inch mark being at the far end away from the toes.

Absolute Strength Push Ups  The score is the number of correct full body Push-ups performed in one minute. Starting in the up position, hands placed slightly wider then shoulder width apart, fingers pointing forward with a straight back. Bend your elbows lowering your body towards the floor and touch your chest to the measuring block (approximately four inches from floor) and return to the up position.

Cardiovascular Capacity 1.5 Mile Run Candidates will perform a 1.5 mile run with scores are assessed in minutes:seconds.


C.H.I.P. administers the physical ability assessment for multiple departments throughout the State of Connecticut.  When candidates pass the Physical Ability Assessment with C.H.I.P., they receive a certificate (C.H.I.P. Card) valid for six months with any participating C.H.I.P. department.  Testing with C.H.I.P. helps candidates apply to a network of participating police departments and helps departments conserve resources by outsourcing their testing.

If you are interested in completing the Physical Ability Assessment, please view our Calendar of Upcoming Test Dates.  You will need to read and complete a General Information Packet and mail it to C.H.I.P. by the corresponding registration deadline for the assessment.  If you have additional questions regarding testing, please contact C.H.I.P..
