The Riley County Police Department Physical Abilities Test (RCAT) is a hybrid physical ability/ job task analysis course designed to evaluate police officer and correction officer personnel and candidates on the essential physical capacities required to successfully perform their duties.
The RCAT was designed to replicate critical and essential physical tasks and demands faced by Riley County Law Enforcement Officers and Corrections Officers in the performance of their duties. Both specific tasks and overall physical demands are replicated through the use of a carefully designed, timed, and validated obstacle course.
