In order to enforce the law and fulfil their job requirements, police officers need to maintain a good level of fitness. Often, the job will require heavy exercise such as running after criminals and restraining them, as well as good co-ordination in order to maintain control of a vehicle when chasing speeding or drunk motorists.
Keeping fit is an essential requirement for law enforcement jobs
To enter the police force, applicants are required to pass a fitness test in order to be considered for a position. If they fail the test, they may have to wait some time before they can reapply, depending on which area of law enforcement they are interested in.
Unfortunately, many police officers can suffer accidents at work that were not their fault, such as fractures, bruises or broken bones. If you have been the victim of any non-fault injury in the last three years, you could be eligible to claim compensation such as untraced driver compensation.
