POLICE OFFICER ENTRY-LEVEL

(PO-EL) 100-NC SERIES (TIP)
25 MINUTES FOR TIP
1 HOUR, 45 MINUTES | 100-ITEM TEST

The PO-EL 100 series are multiple-choice tests designed to assess whether or not a candidate has the most basic abilities necessary to learn and perform the duties of a police officer, such as patrolling an assigned area, questioning witnesses, securing a crime scene, handling a disturbance, investigating a complaint, making arrests and writing reports.

PO-EL 101 and PO-EL 102 helps ensure you’re selecting the most qualified applicants by assessing the knowledge, skills, abilities, and personal characteristics (KSAPs) new officers need in order to be successful on the job. For example:

  • Candidates who have the ability to reason and apply logic to a situation are most likely to come up with effective solutions to tough problems.
  • Candidates who can follow directions, learn and apply laws are most likely to be successful in learning and applying the intricacies of criminal law, such as arrests or search and seizure.
  • Candidates who are observant and perceptive are most likely to maintain an awareness of their surroundings and notice details others might miss.
