A number of Billings police officers spent their Friday trying to beat the clock and pass a bi-annual fitness test.
The officers are given the opportunity to take a fitness in the spring and the fall. The program is on a volunteer basis. Officers are given two options.
Last fall 76 officers, including Chief Rich St. John and Deputy Chief Tim O'Connell, took the test.
Sgt. Kevin Iffland said one test is in the form of an obstacle course, similar to the mandatory test completed during academy training.
The second, the Cooper Standards test, focuses more on pushups, sit ups and a 1.5 mile run. That test is divided up by gender and age.
Friday's tests were conducted at Garfield School in Billings.
