The Police Academy takes tremendous pride in training and graduating some of the finest police officers in the world. During your six to seven-month stay in the Police Academy, you will be required to participate in four separate Physical Fitness Qualifiers (PFQ). The PFQs are used to track your physical fitness progress in the Police Academy and to ensure that you meet LAPD and the Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training minimum physical fitness standards. This can be a daunting task and I strongly recommend that you begin your physical fitness training before you enter the Police Academy. For helpful tips, download the FITNESS LOG Packet.
PFQ's are by appointment only.
You must schedule your PFQ's on myPD here
NOTE: You are expected to bring your fitness log with you to your Department Interview and on your first day in the Police Academy and you must turn it in to your class Drill Instructor at that time.
Below you will find a physical fitness log to track your workout sessions.
