Protective Services Report Plus (PSR Plus)

Provides insight regarding the personality of job candidates seeking positions in the protective services industry

The Protective Services Report Plus (PSR Plus™) provides insight regarding the personality of job candidates seeking positions in the protective services industry such as police officers, firefighters, security guards, EMTs, corrections officers and similar occupations. The PSR Plus is based upon the test-taker’s responses to the 325-item PsychEval Personality Questionnaire (PEPQ™) and takes approximately 90 minutes to complete.  Part I of the PEPQ uses the 185 normal personality items from the 16PF® Fifth Edition Questionnaire.  Part II of the PEPQ, which contains 140 items, focuses on pathology.
