I am from Pa. and have about 12 years law enforcement experience from city, state, federal agencies.
I have a quick question about the Florida Highway Patrol's (PAT) Physical Abilities test.
The course is has 2 --220 yds runs--with a obstacle course and dragging a 150lb dummy to 100 feet. The passing time is 6:04--thats 6 minutes and 4 secs.
My question is for the folks either from Florida Highway Patrol or those who have already completed the test-- is this--what is the "skinny" about this test?
To me--it seems like the course has a fast time limit and from viewing the photos of the men and women already in the academy or the ones who have graduated-- I have a hard time believing that some of them really passed the course-- They looked overweight.
Please--any serious info would be greatly appreciated.
