The objective of this article is to provide an overview of physical ability, finess and police work. The literature is reviewed and the method used to develop a tool that measures the physical abilities required for police work is presented. The importance of linking this standard with a program for health promotion is stressed. The reasons why this standard is occupation specific and non-discriminatory is explained.
