  • Question about PD Medical

    Hello, I had a quick question regarding Medical Testing for Police Departments.

    I am able to pass the powertest, (weights, situps, snr, running, etc.), but have had surgery on my knee in the past, (and currently have screws in my right knee that were left in after the surgery).

    I have no problems running long distances, jumping, sprinting, etc. and would be able to peform the physical duties that the profession required.

    Since I would be able to pass the physical testing, would I be DQ'd later on in the process because of my knee, even though I am able to pass the Powertest? I'm in great shape and work out regularly, but wanted to know if this would hinder me later on in the PD testing process. Any advice would be much appreciated.

    This isn't actually a medical thread, It's much more of a fitness testing thing.

    After toying with a program for 3 years, my agency started getting serious about testing 2 years ago. What it accomplished was to encourage retirement eligible desk jockies to leave, and made room for growth within the agency. It's a good thing... Provided you can pass...

      Thanks for the reply, but I should reword my question. I'm 26, workout regularly, and am able to pass the powertest without any problems. My question is will a previous surgery (that required me to have screws in me knee to heal properly), Disqualify me from employment as a LEO, even if I am physically able to perform all of the job requirements?

        As long as you can successfully complete the testing, there shuold be no problem. I can't see anyone discriminating against you for a prior injury that required surgery, and has healed completely.

        I don't think you have a problem.

            Prior surgery is not an automatic DQ. As long as you can pass all the required physical tests, (agility etc) and the medical exam, you should have no problems. In other words, Go for it!! Good luck.
