Ontario Police Fitness Pin Award Program

The Ontario Police Fitness Award (OPFA) is a provincial incentive program developed to motivate Ontario police officers and police service employees to remain physically fit throughout their entire careers. The policing services division of the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services and the Ontario Chiefs of Police sanctions the OPFA program. The OPFA program is designed and implemented by the Police Fitness Personnel of Ontario (PFPO).

The accredited appraisers' course is held at the Ontario Police College and participants are trained in:

  • The Ontario Police Fitness Award
  • Due Diligence when Maximal Effort Testing

In the policing profession, physical skills and abilities are important job prerequisites. Today, an applicant is required to successfully complete a PREP test or Physical Readiness Evaluation for Police, then again during Basic Constable training at the Ontario Police College. Once the recruit has returned to his or her respective police service, responsibility for individual and continuing fitness belongs to them.

Many police services offer incentives to officers completing or attempting the Ontario Police Fitness Award.  Download the listing of incentives currently offered by many police forces by clicking here.
