POLICE officers in North Yorkshire have the lowest fitness record of any force in the country, new figures will claim today.

The College of Policing placed the force lowest for candidates passing new fitness tests, with a pass rate of 83.8 per cent. North Yorkshire Police said the figures were taken from a small, unrepresentative sample and said their actual pass rate was 94.6 per cent.

The college said that from 13,000 tests across 32 forces, two per cent of officers failed. The new shuttle run tests become mandatory in September.

If an officer fails the fitness test at the first attempt, it is advised that at least two retakes are permitted before forces use "unsatisfactory performance" against the participating officer.

Paul Kennedy, Assistant Chief Constable of North Yorkshire, said: “The actual pass rate for North Yorkshire Police officers who have taken the fitness test is 94.6 per cent, with 1,153 officers passing the test out of 1,219 who have taken it so far.

“The results issued by the college today are taken from a small snapshot in time and include the results of only 74 tests."

He added: “Health and fitness is important for everyone’s wellbeing, regardless of the their role and North Yorkshire Police encourages and supports all officers and staff who wish to improve their fitness.”

The tests indicate that for every 62 fit police officers, there are another 12 out there who aren't. Even the Force's own figures reveal that every 20th police officer doesn't make the grade.

i don't think it is having a go - the report highlights that the police are not fit enough to do the job they are being paid for. Surely on an open forum people have a right to express their views?

Hopefully this report (and their own figures which are still not good enough) will encourage the top brass at NY Police to ensure more officers are fitter which can be no bad think.

What do government cuts have on the fitness levels of the police? It is very easy to say "don't blame the police" but they haven't been forced fed and they should have regular fitness tests to stop this happening.

From another point of view expecting a fitness pass rate exceeding 90% for a profession that has a number of roles that require high levels of fitness seems reasonable. It would of course be better if we can get those nearer to 100% but gone are the days of chasing a burglar with a bag of loot down the road in the middle of the night. These days we need some officers to sit behind screens and search the web for illegal activities, be they breaking child **** rings, cyber theft or curtailing other such nefarious activities, which is not done while exerting great physical effort.

In fairness to officers, can we expect them all to be in top physical shape when the rest of society is increasing levels of obesity at alarming rates?

Yes I accept your point that not all police are expected to chase burglars but as a member of the police force there is an expected level of fitness that you are expected to achieve.

I sit at a desk all day but manage to stay reasonably fit .... in fact I am running the Great North Run soon!!

Physical fitness needs to be part of a wider spectrum of abilities and not in itself the over-arching requirement. Throughout their careers, police-officers should fully demonstrate aptitudes that make them able to do their job competently, independently and properly and overall, to engage with and show support to the public they serve. Too many Robo-cop types and this could skew relationships because one obvious use of these physical demands would be to recruit more cheaper, younger end, physically able but less experienced and capable officers, whereas those who are expanding slightly, could be shown the door and with it all their experience. All in all, this would not be in the best interests of the paying public and these regulations should be managed in a manner that allows flexibility and common-sense.

Ouch Julia brica, ouch. Bit harsh there, but understandable. I think most of the public do support the Police in all the shapes and sizes that they come in these days. Fitness has to be a major factor, as it is a requirement of joining in the first place, much as it is in the armed forces and fire service. The point you raise is a valid one though, why are thugs, criminals and the like kept out of the judicial system as much as possible? The law is becoming a rather large and lardy a*se itself when this type of thing is allowed, much in the same way as pleading guilty gets about 50% off sentencing. The speed camera vans are only adding to the frustration as there isn't the same degree of leniency. The end result of all these factors is that the public are gradually turning away from the boys in blue on the ground. It is to some degree inevitable. Having said that, in my opinion (that many might not agree with) speeding in a 30 zone is probably going to have a higher risk and consequence, as these are generally built up areas, than doing 80 mph on the A64, so not a huge amount of sympathy on that one I'm afraid. Oh and no, I'm not taking the moral high ground as yes I do speed myself, but try not to do it in 30 and 40 zones.

Proof positive we have by far the worst police force in the country. However, they are very good at not recording crime, losing vital evidence in serious cases whereby criminals walk free, getting complaints against the police, damaging police vehicles, and losing control of the streets. Also persecuting motorists whilst ignoring offences committed by cyclists. Is a police force that should be amalgamated out of existence.
