Physical Training SectionThe Physical Training Section develops courses that prepare law enforcement officers for the challenging physical requirements of the profession. Ranging from beginning to advanced, the practical, hands-on courses that the physical training section delivers teach officers the importance of physical fitness and learning the defensive and survival tactics that will ensure a safe approach to the job.

In addition to providing physical training courses in a structured format, the Physical Training Section maintains GPSTC’s fitness equipment and facilities including a state-of-the art weight room, an agility area, a basketball court, a 13-foot deep pool used for dive training, a quarter-mile outdoor track, a 13-prop obstacle course and two padded training rooms used for defensive tactics training.
