New hire physical question.

High blood pressure seems to be extremely common in this field. Diabetes is also fairly common. As long as it’s controlled, most agencies will hire you. Stay fit!!!

We have several Officers that are diabetics and others with medical disorders. If you are capable of carrying out your duties the same as everyone else there should be no problem. I have screws in my shoulder from a motorbike accident. When I applied many moons ago I had to get checked out by the Chief Medical Officer. After the exam I was cleared. Like you I thought it may have counted against me but not so. And I have never looked back.

I’ve worked with officers in the past who had diabetes and others who carried nitro. I can’t speak for PA DOC, but don’t see why it would be an issue. After you find out for sure let us know.
