Tips for applying for positions in disciplined services
To join the disciplined services, one of the entry requirements is to pass the physical fitness test. The required test items and the scoring system of each disciplined service department are different. For example, Police Inspector / Police Constable, Fireman/ Station Officer and Ambulance Officer / Ambulanceman need candidates to pass the “vertical jump” test; Customs & Excise Department Inspector / Customs Officer require candidates to pass the “threading” test; candidates applying for Police Inspector / Police Constable, Immigration Assistant / Immigration Officer, Customs & Excise Department Inspector / Customs Officer and Correctional Service Officer/ Assistant Officer II must take the “800m run” test whilst the scoring standards vary in each department.
