  • Fitness question?

    I read a while back in American Police Beat how the Chicago PD has a fitness incentive. My question is, is it in your contract or Policy? How does it exaclty read? My dept's contract is coming up, and everyone is scrambling for ideas.... Thanks in advance to my crime fight'n brethren...

    It's in the contract and as a result is policy.

      Can anybody tell me how the sit-up test is scored for CPD? Does someone hold your feet down?

      Thanks

        Yes, someone is holding your feet and you do it on a 3-4 inch thick pad. An officer says go, 1 min goes by, he/she says stop. They do not count out loud and you must keep your hands behind your head. Elbows must touch knees and shoulders must touch the padding.

          PHYSICAL FITNESS INCENTIVE

          In an effort to promote physical fitness among the officers
          covered by this Agreement, the Employer and
          Lodge agree to the following:

          􀂃 Beginning in 2001, every officer covered by this
          Agreement will have one opportunity annually to
          schedule an appointment for a physical fitness test.
          An officer will have one opportunity to re-schedule
          the test, but will only be allowed to take the test
          once each year. The test must take place prior to
          November 1 of every year.

          􀂃 An officer will complete a waiver which indicates
          that he or she is volunteering to take this test and
          will not hold the Employer liable for any injuries or
          illness that occurs as a result of his or her participation
          in the testing process.

          􀂃 Successful completion of the physical fitness test
          will result in payment of a physical fitness premium
          of $250, payable December 1 of the year the officer
          successfully completes the test.

          􀂃 It is understood that this is a voluntary program.
          Officers who participate in the physical fitness test
          will do so during off-duty hours without compensation.

          􀂃 Any injury, illness, or death that results from
          participation in this program will not be considered
          an Injury on Duty or a death in the performance of
          duty.

          􀂃 The performance requirement for each test is based
          on the State of Illinois P.O.W.E.R. test. Officers
          must pass every test and meet the minimum standards
          listed below to qualify for the physical fitness
          premium:

          Sit & Reach 16.0 15.0 13.8 12.8
          1 Minute Sit Up 37 34 28 23

          Press Ratio .98 .87 .79 .70

          1.5 Mile Run 16.21 16.52 17.53 18.44

          􀂃 The following are not subject to the grievance procedure:
          The test standards.
          The results of the testing.
          The medical status of an officer who is injured participating
