    The obstacle course I'm not too worried about because I'm lean and a good sprinter. The mile and a half terrifies me and I'm beginning to think I may not be able to do it. I am about 155 lb (5'11"). So I'm pretty skinny and not in great shape at all. The written went really good though but I'm worried about my ability to actually run a mile and a half w/o stopping. If we were aloud to do the walk/sprint thing I'd be fine but I've never actually ran a distance that far before. Oh well I guess I've got 3 weeks to prepare, any pointers?
    Dude... I'm 6'1" and maybe 165-170 I wasn't really worried about the obstacle course, either, but like I said it nearly killed me. I think you get 30 minutes between it and the mile and a half.

    I really doubt three weeks is enough to prepare. 3 months sounds more like it :-) All I can say is, lots of aerobic / cardio exercise... the obstacle course burns up all the O2 in you. the sprint at the end is a nightmare if you aren't in better-than-decent shape.

    Running stairs and doing squats (dummy drag) will help for the course as well. You can go out there and practice it pretty much any time.

    Yeah, that wall almost got me! There are three types of people... those who are actually in decent shape and go right over, those who think they're in decent shape who hit the wall and have to work to get over, and those who aren't in shape at all and the wall kills them :-) I was in the second category... I felt I was doing OK until I stumbled over the 4' wall. I hit the 6' and died. Some people had spent way too much time trying to climb over, so i said eff it, went back to the 4' and got another running start at it. made it over, and finished with a 3:14

    IIRC, you do get some rest between the obstacle course and the 1.5 mile run for CVPD. But no amount of rest would have been sufficient for me.

    Take heed! If you are applying for SDPD / CVPD, that course is no joke. It looks and sounds easy, but if you aren't in shape you 9and they!) will know it.

    It is the same as the SDPD obstacle course at Mira Mar college and yes there is a 1.5 mile run in under 15 minutes. The obstacle course consists of three walls with the highest being six foot, dummy drag, running down/up stairs,a short sprint and some other minor obstacles/cone patterns in a certain time...I think its two minutes but not sure. If you are worried about passing the physical test you need to start running/working out now before it's too late.

    If it is the same course as SDPD then you can download or stream a video of someone doing the course on SDPD website.

    Hey I will be there testing also. Just a short question for you CV guys as well. Do most Chula Vista officers live in south county? I only ask because I used to live in the Carlsbad, Encinitas area back in high school and would like to live there one day again. Just curious?
    Officer in most of the departments in this county live wherever they can afford to. I have a 50+ mile commute to work so I am further away than Carlsbad if that helps you any. The drive stinks sometimes, but I'm OK with it. Some of the SDPD guys I know were living in Murrietta and Temecula and still driving to Southern Division to work.

    The written score is a numerical score...not a pass/fail. The candidates with the higher scores are sent on to the oral board interviews. Those that score well enough in the oral board continue to backgrounds. We have been hiring like crazy for the past two years or so with up to ten recruits in each academy and we have also been hiring a bunch of laterals. The number of laterals in the pipeline and how close we are to being fully staffed will determine how many will be hired. I don't know exactly how many positions are currently opened, but we just got approval from city council recently to add several more positions and more will be added later in the year.

    chula vista pd passing score

    Hey Fuzz,
    Would you know what the passing score is for the test or is it just pass/fail? Also, do you know how many recruits they may be trying to hire? Just like to know what my chances are of getting in. Thanks in advance....
