Response

As the date of September 2013 is mentioned, we have taken this to refer to the Winsor general fitness testing requirements, as opposed to any specialist role fitness testing.

No officers have undertaken the fitness test, as we have not yet implemented fitness testing across the organisation.  The force have now commenced a recruitment process, therefore fitness testing within West Midlands Police will begin roll-out from April 2014, and be fully in place by September 2014, in compliance with the Winsor recommendation timescale.
