    The NYPD almost never gets into situations needing water. It's a city.
    There is no disqualification for not knowing how to swim.

    They put you in a pool WITH a life vest on if you dont know how to swim and tell you to go from one side to the other. Lol.

    Just learn to swim. It'll save your life one day.

      I jumped in the water 3 times during my career. I dont know what ny citian is talking about.

      No you do not KNOW how to swim, they teach you the basics and how to make a human rope to extract. dont worry its easy.

            If I remember correctly, YMCA has free swimming sessions. Just google free swimming in NYC I remember there being a ton. But yeah good idea, as I said before it WILL come in handy on a rainy day (no pun intended).

                A city that covers 5 boroughs on 3 different islands... Surrounded by water... And there's a very large marine unit for the nypd.

                  Yea, you have a day of gym in the pool. It's towards the end and probably one of the best days of gym. You dont really have to know how to swim, but you should know how. This job is all about being prepared, you never know... one weird day you may have to jump into the east river..

                    Been there done that!

                    That water made all of gear rusty in hours! My name tag clear coat was coming off in no time too. Dropped all the stuff on the rocks, not actually in the water.

                    Live and learn.

                      In my company, there were plenty of people who didn't know how to swim. They separate the class into those who can and those who cannot. The latter went to the more shallow side of the pool. Nobody failed this class, to my knowledge.

                      It was easy and one of the most fun classes I experienced in the Academy. At the end, we had a human chain - rescue competition (which we won lol), where the winning team got to leave Gym early and go relax in the locker room.
