Just because you are reading this article means that you are interested in being a police officer. I couldn’t blame you because as a police officer you are able to serve your community and your country. Along with that a police career is a very fulfilling, well paying and secure profession.
But don’t you know that only 30% of police candidates pass the exams and only 5% are offered a position. There are many different reasons why a police candidate does not pass the initial screening but most of the common mistakes are.
Improper filing of the application form- the application form is very critical in your application because the police department uses the application form to pre-screen candidates.
Preparing for the Police Written test- if you pass the initial screening, then next comes the written exam. If you don’t know what to study and expect in the police exam then chances are you will fail.
Day of the written test- some candidates go to the examination day all cocky and confident but once they see the test they choke because the questions are not what they have expected. So it is an advantage of knowing what type of questions you can expect.
So this are the three most common mistakes police candidates do, and if you do any one of these you will definitely fail in the exam. And once you have failed the exam you can no longer advance to the other test given to aspiring police officers. Now it will be nice if you have access to people who has experience in recruiting police officers, they can probably give you very valuable tips on how to ace the exam and the other tests given by the police department.
Like the old saying fail to prepare, prepare to fail well thats what you will get if you don’t know what it takes to be a police officer.
