The Aurora Police Department Recruiting Unit has partnered with the Community College of Aurora and Perfecktly Imperfeckt to host a fitness competition for men and women who are interested in pursuing a career in law enforcement.

The event will be held on June 25, 2016 from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM at the Community College of Aurora Lowry Campus which is located at 700 E Severn Place in Denver.

The day will begin with Police Recruiters covering the Aurora Police Department Academy fitness standards. The competitors will then compete against each other in a variety of fitness events throughout the day. The goal of the days events is to give the competitors an idea of where their fitness levels lie in relation to academy standards so they can determine whether or not they are fit to be a cop.

The top competitors at the end of the fitness competition will receive prizes from our various sponsors.

To Register for the event click here. You do not have to be a current applicant to participate. For more information about the event call Officer Arturo Zepeda with the Recruiting Unit at 303-739-7897.
