“Fair or Above” Ratings for the Raleigh Police Department Physical Assessment

The below listed requirements are to achieve a score of Fair or Above in each individual category. It is not necessary for you to score Fair or Above in each category, you must have an overall score of Fair or Above. In other words, if you do not do as well in one category, you must compensate in another category.
