Walter’s Answer

The question should not be how much physical training do you need. The real question is how much physical training are you willing to do to keep yourself and others safe. The physical training has a purpose and that is to keep you conditioned to one chase and to fight individuals in hand to hand when your life and others is threatened and you have no other choice. For this you should train at less 3 days a week in cardio and 2 day with weights for 30 min. This I would say is a minimal you should be doing. There are times when it’s hard because life just doesn’t allow it but you should find the time as being phaysical fit can save your life and the lives of others.

Hi Muhammad, My husband is a Police Officer and I can tell you his daily routine includes a visit to the gym. Being in Law Enforcement you wear many hats so being mentally and physically fit is a must.. But if you are not afraid of a little hard work the rewards are wonderful. Follow your dream and good luck...

I really think it depends on what's required for the agility test in your state. I'm not sure if they are all the same, but here in Kansas I was told the reason why people don't pass the test is because you have to run over a high board just like when a criminal jumps a fence or something you have to be able to physically get over it. A lot of people wasn't successful in that part, but with everything else they passed. I would definitely get in the gym and get your body use to running fast, etc because that will definitely help.
