Instances may arise where a cadet's physical attributes are required to prevent physical harm to themselves or a member of the public.

The WPS-PAT is conducted in a gymnasium with the applicant wearing clothing appropriate for physical activity and consists of:

  • Running 400 metres (1/4 mile) over a six lap course. This includes climbing up and down stairs, jumping over low obstacles.
  • Following the six laps the applicant moves to the push/pull station where they will pull and push against 80 lbs of resistance while moving in a controlled half circle. Two controlled falls to the chest (roll over to the front and stand) are completed after each group of three pulls or three pushes. This sequence is repeated twice.
  • Following the push/pull station the applicant completes the test by lifting and carrying 80 lbs a distance of 50 feet.
  • The WPS-PAT test must be completed within 4 minutes and 15 seconds.
  • Applicants must produce an Original Certificate of the WPS-PAT as provided by the contractor for the Winnipeg Police Service.

NOTE: A WPS-PAT CERTIFICATE IS NOT REQUIRED TO APPLY, IS VALID FOR ONE YEAR (EFFECTIVE JANUARY 2010) AND MUST BE COMPLETED PRIOR TO THE PANEL INTERVIEW (Step 3) .
