Being a police officer requires rapid, effective decision making. Wrong decisions can be costly and put the public at risk. The Police Selection Test (PST®) is an assessment of a candidate’s reasoning, verbal ability, and numeric ability. Key measures, including reading comprehension, quantitative problem solving, interpretation, written communication skills, and verbal problem solving, are integrated into one comprehensive exam. The Police Selection Test is based on comprehensive job analysis and literature review. Additionally, the Police Selection Test validation can be transported to your organization using a simple procedure.
In the addition to the exam, an optional study guide is available. Provision of a study guide enables motivated candidates to prepare for the exam, providing additional advantages to the department.
