SOME FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THE POST…

WHAT IS THE POST?

Police and highway patrol academies, police departments, and departments of corrections across the United States use comprehensive exams to assess candidates. For example, the state of California Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) has developed the PELLETB (the POST Entry-Level Law Enforcement Test Battery). In Florida, most police academies and Florida Highway Patrol require the CJBAT (Criminal Justice Basic Abilities Test). Several agencies throughout the nation, including Chicago, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, and state police in Missouri, Arkansas, Maine, Pennsylvania and elsewhere use the NCJOSI (National Criminal Justice Officer Selection Inventory). Michigan uses the MCOLES (Michigan Commission on Law Enforcement Standards). Check with your agency or academy to determine which exam you need to prepare for. Many community colleges also offer police exams.

WHAT IS ON THE POST?

Different exams test different subjects. Still, there are a few major topics covered on almost every exam. Candidates are evaluated on their reading, language, and reasoning skills. Some exams also test basic math and quantitative reasoning skills. Most tests have around one hundred multiple-choice questions and are approximately two hours long. The number of questions and exact time vary by test. General topics of study include:

  • Reading Comprehension

  • Writing Questions

  • Reasoning Questions

    • Inductive/Deductive Reasoning

    • Information Ordering

    • Problem Sensitivity

    • Spatial Orientation

    • Selective Attention and Flexibility of Closure

    • Memorization


HOW IS THE POST ADMINISTERED?

Different police exams like the PELLETB, CJBAT, NCJOSI, and more, are administered by participating law enforcement agencies and academies. To register for an exam, you must directly contact the participating agency or academy where you are applying. You may take most exams in a pencil-and-paper format or a computer-administered format. Check with your agency to be sure.

On test day, arrive early. Check with the facility or participating agency to make sure you know what type of identification to bring (usually government-issued photo identification). Bring at least two sharpened No. 2 pencils. Personal belongings, cell phones, and other electronic, photographic, recording, or listening devices are not permitted in the testing center. Many testing centers offer lockers to secure your personal items, but you should check beforehand with the facility to be sure storage is available.
