Run With Your Recruiter

It's time for another "Run With Your Recruiter" event at Memorial Park on Friday, May 18, 2012 at 6:30 a.m.

If you have lived within a 200 mile radius of Houston for the past three years and are interested in a career with the Houston Police Department, then come out to the park and run with us to see if you can pass the physical fitness requirements for entrance into the police academy. This is a good opportunity for you to gauge your current level of physical fitness and learn what you need to work on before you enter the academy.

This event is designed only for those individuals interested in joining the Houston Police Department who meet the requirements. If you have attended past Run With Your Recruiter events, we encourage you to join us again to work on your skills and stay in shape. For the specifics of what the physical requirements are to enter the police academy, please visit our website. You can also view a video of the Physical Fitness Applicant Standards on the blog as well.

Location: Memorial Park, 6501 Memorial Park, quarter mile track in front of the tennis courts.

*Note: If there is inclement weather (rain) on this day, the event will be canceled.

Please RSVP as soon as possible if you plan to attend this event at: runwithyourrecruiter@gmail.com

Even if you have already taken the PT test and are in the application process, we encourage you to continue your training. Please join us if possible.

Your hpdcareer homepage states that the run with your recruiter is at 8am on the 20th of apri, but this page says its at 630am. Just wanted to know which time is it, so that im not extremely early, or terribly late.

Officer McCoy said...

It starts at 0630. See you there!
