Glendale Police - Physical Agility Test

Glendale Police - Physical Agility Test


Physical Agility Test (P.A.T.)

The Physical Agility Test (P.A.T.) is administered after the candidate has successfully passed the written examination. The P.A.T. is usually given on a designated weekend and administered by the Rio Hondo Police Academy Staff under the direction of the City of Glendale Human Resources Division. All applicants must be successful in each phase of the P.A.T. to continue with the selection and hiring process.

Each event is time separately and is scored on a point system. You will receive a score based on the successful completion of all of the events and the amount of time that it takes to complete each obstacle. To successfully pass the P.A.T., you will need to earn a minimum score of 384 points = 70% to continue onto the oral examination.
