SOUTH CHARLESTON, W.Va. — The Law Enforcement Section of the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources has scheduled Physical Agility Tests (PAT) on Oct. 26-27 for anyone interested in applying for open Natural Resources Police Officer (NRPO) positions.

The tests will be at the South Charleston Community Center and start at 9 a.m. Walk-ons will be accepted.

Times and a location will be announced at the PAT.

During the PAT, candidates must complete a 37.5-yard swim, a minimum of 18 pushups in proper form in one minute and 28 sit-ups in proper form in one minute, and a 1.5 mile run in 14 minutes, 36 seconds or less.
