  • PG County Park Police

    I took their POST test today with about 100 people in attendence.

    Anyone ever work there or know someone who did/does?


    We were told approx. 60% fail that test and I must say it was the hardest POST test BY FAR I have taken to date.


    They give you 25min. to read a 16 page study guide about all different thing along with a few wanted posters and descriptions.

    About half of the questions( 50 out of 100) are based on this study guide. The rest is reading comp.,map reading and directions,some math( no scratch paper allowed) and many defintions or opposite of whatever word they give you.


    I know I passed it( me thinks ) but that was kinda difficult I thought. I hear Metro Transit PD test is the same.

    Anyone else have a test like this???? It seems like a great way to weed people out quickly from the process as I guarantee it's much harder the SSUD,Capitol Police,and MPD. Maybe some places just have to make tests so the dumb dumbs can have a chance and can't say it was unfair for them because they ain't edumacated

    Fairfax and Stafford use the same test, I'm sure there are more.

      Years ago when I first attempted to get into law enforcement, several police departments that I applied for gave a similiar test for new police applicants. Thats what the test is based on to determine initial skills needed to be a police officer. It did seem pretty difficult back then.
      God created some police officers perfect, the rest he put in cars.

        I truely think a harder test is not a bad idea. The tests some of these guys give out is a complete joke. They have to be dummied down so the dummies think they have a shot.

          I took the test last year about the same time. That test was the hardest test I think I have ever taken for a police test. Especially the study guide then answer a ton of questions. I just recently took the Harford County S.O. test. Exact same test and I got an 84. Missed the same questions though.

          I made it to the background phase then pulled out when Spotsylvania S.O. offered me the job. When you go for Orientation, and finger prints you will just see how many did not make it.

          Good Luck.

                Just received word by mail that I passed the test and that a personality screening test is next on Aug. 5th...

                What the hell is that? It says it takes about 2 hours.


                Anyone familar with this test or department? I'm guessing it's a different name for a pysch. test

                    For the personality screening I went to the same place I took the test, in PG county. I was there for about 2-3 hours, and took a written test, fill in the blanks. Same type of questions, do you like flowers or poetry, a lot questions regarding integrity, your morals. I was kind of freaked before i took it.

                    Good Luck....

                              Oops........forgot to add this

                              117 people took the POST test and only 37 passed it. We were told 6% of the 37 will fail the personality test then 60% of the remainder will fail out after that
