At the December 18, 2013 MPTC Committee Meeting the MPTC Committee voted to increase the timeframe a student officer’s Comprehensive Medical Exam will be valid when applying to a police academy. The Municipal Police Training Committee’s Policy requiring a student officer's Comprehensive Medical Exam to have been completed within six months of the start of the police academy has been extended to a period of nine-months; but they must still be valid (unexpired) on the start date of an academy. This decision does not affect the expiration date for PAT results, which are still only valid for six months.
Scheduling the Medical Exam: The Human Resource Division's requires the candidate’s comprehensive medical exam be conducted by either a police department's physician or any occupational healthcare provider. The candidate cannot use their personal physician or a physician they know. A military doctor cannot be used as an occupational healthcare provider.
