Physical Ability Test (PAT)

The job of a Police Officer is physically demanding and all police officer applicants must meet the physical fitness standards to be considered.

The current Oklahoma City Police Physical Ability Test (PAT) consists of an obstacle course which includes running, climbing walls, hurdling, jumping over obstacles, crawling under impediments, and moving a heavy object.  The goal is to test the applicant’s ability to perform those physical requirements as part of a timed event.  The course must be completed in 6 minutes or less.  (6:00)
