Can you pass the written police officer exam?
Do you have what it takes to protect and serve? Most US police academies have a written entrance exam that tests verbal, mathematical, and reasoning abilities. As there is no national or standardized police exam, this quiz consists of a compilation of sample police test questions. The questions come from various police departments across the country, from county sheriff departments to the US Capitol police department. Therefore, this quiz does not represent an actual police test. Rather, it gives a sense of the kinds of questions that may be asked on an actual police exam.
