LESI - Law Enforcement Screening Inventory
Many agencies will tell you that they use the LESI for their written exam. The abbreviation can be confusing, as LESI can mean Law Enforcement Selection Inventory (an exam format). LESI® (Law Enforcement Services, Inc.) is also a professional consulting firm serving law enforcement, corrections and public safety agencies that markets the "LESI" test to police forces. If your agency tells you that they use "LESI," here is what it includes.
LESI combines two types of testing: one for cognitive abilities and another for personality traits. The cognitive questions are essentially the same as those found on the NPOST. The NPOST is a popular entry-level, basic skills test that measures these cognitive abilities: Arithmetic, Reading Comprehension, Grammar and Incident Report Writing.
