  1. Good evening! Recrntly I have applied to be a police officer, I believe I have great communication skills as well as many others to do the job. Fitness isn't too great, but it's something I am now working on as much as I can. My only concern is, barefoot I'm 5'8, 173cm. I worry that I'm going to be too small to do the job effectively. I'd like to point out that I'm male if it makes a difference. Are there any officers out there or a similar height who can give me an insight? Do you find it puts you at a disadvantage? Are you treated differently? How do you deal with someone who's much taller than you, 6'+? Any advice and guidance would be really appreciated, I may be being too critical, but I thought I'd ask anyway.
