Is that your physical agility test to continue in the hiring process?
Or is this what you have to do to pass the academy?

To get Admitted/Hired you have to complete this test
You still have to complete the mile and a half run to graduate, only the time is 14:21 now.
Was that video shot in the gym at the police academy?
Fence to get in the academy and wall to graduate. The wall seems a bit higher. The instructors stap on a weighted belt on you and off you go.
WOW! When I had to do it there was a solid six foot wall, we had to use every step on the stairs no skipping, there were three laps around the cones rather than two, and there was no mat for the dummy to be dragged on! I guess this department is really starting to get desperate.
I recently graduated. yes, it's a fence to get hired and a solid wall to graduate. skip steps going up but hit every step coming down, 5 laps around the cones and the dummy is dragged on a mat which is harder. the mat is rubber and so is the dummy. the inst take the dummy off the mat as practice because it's easier to drag.
thanks...this helped to get a visual!
I'm a woman who just took this test today and i ended up failing at the end. Pace is key I think. I did well over the frnce, stairs, and everything else, but when you get to the dummy, you're WAY tired. I pulled and got the dummy to drag a bit, but then I just hit that wall and my body wouldnt go anymore. I was pulling with all my might, but just couldnt. I was given the test date a week after my medical and just trained that whole week by running the track in the park and practicing the stairs, and when I was doing those parts, I didnt even feel tired. The weight machine is harder than it looks-the pulling is ok, the pushing is a bit harder, maybe bc women carry all their strength in the legs. At least I know what to expect, and I plan on nailing it the second time. The video is a lot shorter than the actual one. Its the fence, 3 complete repitions of the stairs (so youre going over each side 3 times), the weight machine, you run 5 laps-not 3, and then the dummy (you have to pull it by a rope) and then the trigger pull. Just please watch out for that dummy (its 176 lbs.) -it was the least thing i was worried about and it was the one thing i screwed up on.
In the video what he jumped over appeared to be a fence. When I went through (4 years ago) there were 2 chain link fences, and a slightly different course to get hired. To graduate, as someone mentioned, there was the 1.5 mile, bench, situps. We were one of the test classes for the new course. At that time it was only a solid wall.
That video just shows all of the parts of the JST, it does not show every part from start to finish. It is an easy test.
