Dorset Police Officers Take Fitness Test


12:45pm 15th August 2014

96% of our police officers in Dorset have passed a fitness test.

The results have been published by the College of Policing.

The tests will become mandatory in September.

There was a 98% pass rate for the 32 forces that took part.

Rose Bartlett, from the College of Policing, said: “The results show that the vast majority of officers tested are fit. 

“The new guidance issued to forces has been designed to provide supportive measures to help officers to pass and the College has now commissioned research in order to understand why women and older officers have a lower pass rate.

“The College will continue to monitor the results of police fitness tests and support forces in helping officers to pass.”
