Abstract

Purpose: Law enforcement applicant assessments and initial academy training are extremely diverse and vary greatly across the United States of America (USA), with 820+ academies operating across 50 different states with an additional 35+ federal agency law enforcement initial training academies. Population increases in obesity and the impact of COVID-19 make it imperative to create benchmarks for applicant physical performance. The aim of this study was to create a “point-in-time” descriptive profile of the physical performance of law enforcement (LE) applicants and determine any general differences between males, females, and chronological age using two applicant test batteries (ATBs).
