Unfit police will face pay cut under plans to rid service of fat officers

All police officers should be made to take an annual fitness test, with a pay cut for those who repeatedly fail, a review said today.

In the Metropolitan Police, more than half (52 per cent) of its male officers are overweight, a fifth (22 per cent) are obese, and one in 100 are "morbidly obese" the report showed.

For women officers in the Met, a third (32 per cent) are overweight, 16 per cent are obese and 2 per cent are morbidly obese.

Tom Winsor, who has carried out the widest-ranging review of police pay and conditions in more than 30 years, said those who fail the test three times should be subject to disciplinary procedures and a pay cut.

Chief constables should be able to make any officer redundant as part of budget cuts, ending the prospect of a job for life, the report said.

It also recommended that applicants should be able to enter the police service directly at inspector rank, and, ''after rigorous testing'', at superintendent rank.

There has been a remarkable increase of Grossly unfit and tubby police officers. There should be an annual fitness test for the officers where they have to complete a hard physical fitness routine within a certain time. If they fail they should be deemed uncapable of doing the job and be dismissed. Either that or take a huge cut in salary and do mediocre pen pushing jobs.

What on earth do they think they are doing. They can't do their job properly that is for sure.

In the army a bft is compulsory so to should it be in the police. No doubt the PC lobby (no pun intended) will be up in arms.

dont you remember some while back a fat pc kicked up a stink cos she couldn't finish the race in the allotted time and claimed discrimination and said she had been humiliated blah blah blah. the police said the were going to do away with fitness tests because of it ffs.

anyways must have been DM shite as it's not happened. if they are not fit enough for the job then tough. either get fit or go do something else.
