    Instead of dreaming try acting like a cop and actually go to the official recruitment site for LASD.

    There you will get requirements and tips on how to study and get ready for the testing, including the physical agility test (VPAT)

    You can also go to YouTube to view a demo of the physical agility test.

    If, like you said alter you really want LAPD do the same, Go to their site.

    You see if you ask a question on this site you get BS answers from guys like mr. cool. He claims to be a retired cop and all but he just copied my old Y!A profile and likes to lie to people.

    First work on your grammar and spelling. There is a lot of writing reports as a police officer.

    Source(s): ....I am a retired police officer. I retired as a sergeant, after 29 years, from a very large department, about 12,000 officers. I was a patrol officer for 4 years in a very diverse area. I was a tactical officer in the high rise project areas of my city. We called it vertical patrol in that we walked the the stairways of the high rises most of the time. I did that for 5 years and was promoted by test to detective. I worked violent crime (homicide, sex, officer involved shootings, robbery, kidnapping, serious non property incidents) for 11 years until I was promoted to sergeant. I worked as a street supervisor, a bicycle patrol supervisor and a desk sergeant/watch commander. During my time as a tactical officer and a detective I was a unit representative for the police union. I have a B.A in English and an M.S. in Law Enforcement Administration....
