Fitness tests and UPP

26 September 2019

The College of Policing is testing the original research underpinning the assumptions of the 15-metre shuttle run fitness test.

While the new research is carried out, forces have been urged not to initiate unsatisfactory performance procedures (UPP) against officers who have failed the shuttle run test.

“We have been aware of concerns about this element of the fitness test for some time so we are pleased the College of Policing has commissioned this research and also that the Force has not started UPP against officers who have not passed the shuttle run while we await further updates,” says Kirsty Bunn, secretary of Derbyshire Police Federation.
