With rumors of changes coming, we have the latest on the truth behind all these rumors. Rumors circling the state regarding the TDCJ's intention to increase the qualifications to pass it's physical agility testing given during pre-service and in-service have been found to be just that at this point. Rumors. In an email from TDCJ's Public Information Office sent to the Backgate, Jason Clark stated that there are no immediate plans or conversations underway about changes to the current TDCJ Officer P.A.T program. Does that mean that changes still won't happen in years to come? Who knows, but for now you guys are safe. But get ahead and start a work out program just in case. It can't hurt.
