Mike im surprised you mean mentioned the T thing with no knowlegdge of training history or age. Esp for the police force! Dont they test?
I think weight would help with activities such as lifting people (firefighter) or with controlling somebody (police). Bigger people are usually more intimidating also.
Physically I can pass either physical exam pretty easily as long as I train for it.
I've spent sometime grappling, training in martial arts, kickboxing, etc.
Extra weight does help.
