An Indiana police academy shared video of officers testing the recruits’ focus by squeaking a rubber chicken next to their faces.
The video posted to Facebook Sunday by the Indiana University Police Academy shows recruits at the Bloomington school standing at attention while offers administer “The Chicken Test.”
The video shows a uniformed officer walking behind the cadets and squeaking the rubber chicken next to their faces.
Some recruits are able to remain stoic in the face of such classic comedy, but cadets who laugh or crack a smile are made to perform push-ups.
“The Chicken Test – Designed to test a cadet’s demeanor, focus and sense of humor! Not bad…” the Facebook post states.
