One in four police officers is unfit

One in four police officers failed to complete a fitness test within an acceptable time frame, reports Tuesday’s AD newspaper.

Some 10,000 police staff took the test last year on a voluntary basis. But as from next year the test will be compulsory and from 2012 those that fail will have to face the consequences, the paper said.
