2011 Police Chiefs Exam Results and Why You Should Care

The results are in for the 2011 Chief’s exam and the feedback I have received is not good news for those looking to take the October exam for Sergeant, Lieutenant and Captain.

The scores for the Chief’s exam were lower than most hoped and the feedback from those few (under a dozen statewide) who did take it indicates that the same exam writer who administered the October 2010 Sergeant, Lieutenant and Captain exams wrote this exam as well. What this means is that those taking the upcoming exam should not take for granted that it will be easier than last year’s.

With 2 and a half months left there is little time to spare, and although no one should panic, a sincere sence of urgency in studying should be expressed by everyone looking to take this upcoming exam.

Lower pass rates obviously means that those few who do pass will have a very good chance of being promoted despite lower scores than they would be used to.

Keep moving forward.
