[ARCHIVED] Academy Hosting Physical Fitness Exams on Friday and Saturday

LCPD Applications for Police Cadets

The Las Cruces Police Department is hosting Physical Fitness Exams for prospective applicants on Friday and Saturday for those who are considering a career in law enforcement.

The Physical Fitness Exams will be held beginning at the top of each hour from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. Friday, July 16, and Saturday, July 17. Exams both days will be held at the Field of Dreams, 2501 Tashiro Rd. Applicants can choose any one session to attend.

Participants are encouraged to download and complete a Physical Fitness Assessment Waiver form before attending a session. The Physical Fitness Assessment Waiver form is located on the Las Cruces Police Department’s website. Participants need to submit the completed form when they arrive for their Physical Fitness Exam.

Applicants should arrive well before the session they choose to attend. Prospective applicants are encouraged to wear clothing and footwear appropriate for the four physical fitness standards set by the New Mexico Department of Public Safety. The basic entry standards – the same for men and women – include:
   

  • 1.5 mile run in 15 minutes, 14 seconds or less.
  • 300 meter dash in 71 seconds or less.
  • Minimum 27 sit-ups in less than 1 minute.
  • Minimum 15 pushups in less than 1 minute.

 
Anyone interested in applying for the Las Cruces Police Department’s next Academy, scheduled to begin in January 2022, is encouraged to attend one of the Physical Fitness Exams. Academy staff and recruiters will be available for assistance and to answer questions about Academy life and careers in law enforcement.

Applications for the next Academy must be received by July 30. Early submission of applications is encouraged. Prospective applicants can chat with a Las Cruces Police Department recruiter by texting “JoinLCPD” to 5753766817.
