Becoming A Police Officer

Postby Grufydd » Wed Oct 29, 2014 2:33 pm

I have applied to be a police officer and I will soon be taking the multiple choice exam, descriptive writing exercise, and personal history questionnaire. Is there anything I can do to better prepare myself for any of the tests? What should i expect going in? I would appreciate any advice

ANSWER: Tony,

It is an aptitude test and to put it bluntly, either you have it or you don't.  A long time ago I saw a preparation book in the library but I doubt if that is going to help.  If you can think critically and are a skilled writer then you shouldn't have a problem.

---------- FOLLOW-UP ----------

For the drug test, is it a hair test or a urine test? How can I find out if it is different depending on location?

Tony,

It depends on what department you are applying for.  There are thousands of departments and some could have the urine test and others another type of test.  If drug use is a concern then you should not be applying because the truth will be revealed early in the process.  If you are not truthful then the polygraph will get you.  But to answer your question I would suggest calling the police department.  It will however be a huge red flag.
