Question career rests on possible HBP.

Hello. I am a 27 year old male, 6ft. 220lbs. I never smoked, I eat fairly well, and exercise regularly (at least three times a week). I recently had a pre employment physical for a city police officer position and was very surprised to find out I had close to high BP. It was taken three times and each time it was lower. The final reading was 146/74. I am concerned they will not hire me for the job and for my overall health. Can they deny me employment for having close to High Blood Pressure?
