    Don't sweat the physical, especially if you can pass the standard police power test. Double -action are NOT all that's allowed. They've changed since I went through the academy; you MUST buy a weapon when beginning . And I was told by a buddy who just went to in-service training that they want you to carry a separate weapon for off-duty and not carry your duty when off. This makes NO sense at all, and I doubt if it will be in effect for very long. I carry my duty (Glock 21) for side jobs and my off (S&W airweight) for casual carry. I don't intend to change this.

    Thanks for the answer, I never did the step box test and even though I have no problem running the 1 1/2 mile run I for some reason thought the box test was a little more difficult.

    I don't want to sound like a fool, I can easily pass the state power test for police officer, is there any special preperation I would need for the physical agility test for corrections? I am just wondering.

    You can carry the same, on duty and off. There is also an approved list of off duty weapons.

    Are you allowed to carry the same style weapon off duty, or they have specific guidlines for that too?

    The test is the same as IDOC's which is on their website. You should be alright on the course as long as you get your squat thrusts right and listen to the Officers there when they give you the walk through and tell you about looking pretty. Everyone who tried to look cool and pretty failed.

    You buy ALL (spend about 2500-3000... really)your gear incl weapon-DOUBLE ACTION ONLY. I was in the acad last summer and P2000 was not on the list. Glock 19+17, Ruger p-series dao, Beretta 92 dao, Sig 226+229 dao (Sig now have 226R-229R/DAK which is new improved dao trigger pull and accessory rail in front of trigger guard like Glocks) and some SW models. Glocks were most prevelent, Sigs next for those who can afford it, a few Berettas and a Ruger p94 (good guns actually if you can find one in dao, cheap too about 350-400) I myself want the P2000 and am trying to find out if its allowable. Pats Test is easy except for zig zag obst course that is about 40x20 ft and has multiple stations that you have to do certain things... you must pass the finish line within 30 seconds! so if you are not in great shape get cracking.

    You have to do a step test for three minutes. 17 pushups, a grip test, and you have to run through an obstical course. Its fairly easy. You are given a list of guns that you can buy for on duty. You have to buy one as far as I know because you have to qualify at the firing range with that weapon to graduate.

    My buddy works for IDOC and he went out and purchased a Beretta 92D

    I believe all the guns on the list are double action only but I could be wrong

    Is it pushups like the IDOC?

    I am not sure I understood your last posts? They require pushups-pushups?

    I assume you mean that they just require so many pushups in a minute? And the running up stairs is what like striaght for 3 minutes?

    Stairs but no dummy and push ups- push ups.

    It's designed to test endurance, chest strength, arm stregnth and coordination.
