Massachusetts Police Exams
The Commonwealth of Massachusetts invites police applicants to take the state-wide Police Civil Service exam at select times throughout the year. The test is conducted at various sites across the state and is the first step in the police hiring process, even before filling out an application. Test scores are used to generate a ranked list of qualified candidates to be considered for appointment by each jurisdiction.
The test is based upon the Law Enforcement Abilities Battery (LEAB) published by EB Jacobs and has three challenging components:
Written Ability Test (WAT)
Life Experience Survey (LES)
Work Styles Questionnaire (WSQ).
The highest rated prep course for the LEAB is the LEAB QuikPrep course by Sgt. George Godoy. It covers all three aspects of LEAB in depth, plus much more.
Dates and details for the exam can be found at Municipal and MBTA Transit Police Officer Exam.
