[ARCHIVED] Physical Training Tests will be on Saturday

Police Officer

The Las Cruces Police Department will host Physical Training Practice Courses Saturday for people interested in a career in law enforcement.


LCPD recruiters will host Physical Fitness Practice Courses for prospective applicants beginning at 7 a.m. on Saturday, May 7, at the running track at Centennial High School, 1950 Sonoma Ranch Boulevard. Participants can enter the campus at the entrance closest to Sonoma Ranch Boulevard and University Avenue.

The testing will be in one-hour increments starting at 7 a.m. with the final course beginning at 11 a.m. Applicants should arrive well before the PT test they choose to attend. Prospective applicants are encouraged to wear clothing and footwear appropriate for the four physical fitness standards set by the New Mexico Department of Public Safety. The basic entry standards – the same for men and women – include:

  • 1.5 mile run in 15 minutes, 14 seconds or less.
  • 300 meter dash in 71 seconds or less.
  • Minimum 27 sit-ups in less than 1 minute.
  • Minimum 15 pushups in less than 1 minute.


Recruiters will be available to answer questions about the Academy and life as a law enforcement officer. LCPD’s academy is tentatively set to begin in November 2022, but applications must be received by May 29. Early submission of applications is encouraged.

Applications for Police Cadet must be completed online. Information about the Academy, and a link to the job description, can be found by clicking the “Recruitment” tab at www.CLCPD.com.
