Law enforcement is a physically demanding occupation. For the general duties officer, lower-body power, speed, and agility may be required to carry out a multitude of occupational tasks and maintain personal safety.
PURPOSE: To investigate which measures of fitness are related to performing a CODS tasks among female police officers under loaded and unloaded conditions..
METHODS: Archived physical abilities data for fifty-one (n = 51) female police officers from Serbia police was provided to the primary investigators for analysis.
RESULTS: There were significant negative correlations between IAT performance, SLJ (r = -.586) and PSMM (r = -.528). Additionally, there were significant negative correlations between the IATL and SLJ (r = -.56) performance. Furthermore, there was a significant positive correlation between IAT, HT (r =- .355), BMI (r = .346), and PBF (r = .523).
CONCLUSION: Performance on the IAT and IATL was significantly and positively related to body composition and lower-body power.
