The Police Officer Physical Ability Test or POPAT has long been a key step for those who are thinking about a career as a VicPD officer. As anyone who has run the POPAT can tell you, achieving a competitive time in this six-round, three-stage physical test often requires both good physical fitness and familiarity with the test itself. All too often, even the most athletic candidates find themselves bested by their first POPAT running as they are unfamiliar with the course, techniques, and pacing required to pass.
