Sports test as part of the selection process for the police

The special police test includes, among other things, a physical fitness test. The candidates have to complete a parkour inside , which is composed of several different sections. The times to be achieved are: 

  • Male candidate: 1 minute and 10 seconds.
  • Female candidate: 1 minute and 20 seconds

Each station that is not performed at all or is performed incorrectly must be repeated. The candidate must successfully complete each station before proceeding. 

In the following videos you will find an overview of the sports test procedure.

Before the candidate can take part in the sports test, a medical certificate must be presented confirming the candidate's ability to participate. Before the candidate is successfully admitted to police training, he or she must also undergo a medical examination by an occupational physician, as is customary in other professions. 

The necessary physical and health requirements are set out in Annex A of the Grand-Ducal Regulation of 29 July 2020. You can consult them here below. If you have any doubts about any of the requirements, we recommend that you consult your doctor.
