Law Enforcement - Physical Readiness Test

Additional Requirements: Applicant must pass the Physical Readiness Test before taking the three certification exams.

Patrol/Detention Physical Readiness Test Scoring

Each of the five PRT events measures a different component of physical fitness, each of which is a determinant of an officer's readiness to perform essential job tasks. To pass the PRT, a participant must score a minimum of 10 points on each of the five PRT events. Performance below the level required for 10 points in any event is substandard and results in failure of the PRT. Twenty points is the maximum possible for each event, a total of 100 being the highest possible PRT score.
