POST Physical Readiness Standards
Nevada Peace Officers are called upon to perform important, often critical, job functions where their physiological capabilities and readiness directly relate to their effectiveness, their safety, and the safety of co-workers and citizens. The POST Physical Readiness Standards are in place to ensure that the State of Nevada provides for the development and maintenance of a fit and capable work force in order to achieve the primary objective of providing reasonable assurance of safe and effective job performance.
All Nevada peace officers must take the POST Physical Readiness Test, regardless of their age, within 16 weeks of their initial date of hire as a Nevada peace officer or as part of a certified academy. This document describes these required tests.
