What is the Job Standard Test (also known as JST)?
The JST is a Physical Assessment used by the NYPD in which Candidates must finish a continuous physical test in 4 minutes and 28 seconds to pass. It includes sprinting 50 feet, getting over a barrier, climbing stairs, demonstrating the ability to physically restrain someone, running (as if in pursuit), dragging a 176-pound mannequin 35 feet (as if rescuing someone) and demonstrating the ability to handle an unloaded firearm.
There are no BMI/body size requirements to join the NYPD, but getting into physical shape for the JST is strongly encouraged as it will make it easier to pass, which is a mandatory requirement in order to be hired as a NYPD police officer. If Candidates fail their first attempt, they will be offered tutoring and be allowed additional opportunities to pass the exam.
