  • What agencies use the POST written and/or PAT?

    They are randomly listed in different threads, but I think it would be good to have them in one thread. So, list agencies that you know of that use the POST written and/or PAT.

    The agencies that I know:
    Costa Mesa
    Torrance

        Every LE agency in California must adhere to POST. Riverside Sheriff uses the POST written, and will waive if you've taken it with another agency within one year (bring proof). Orange County Sheriff has a written that is POST, but it was different than RSO. As far as the PAT, Riverside's test is the exact POST PAT; 500yd run, 6' solid wall, 6' chain-link fence, 165lb dummy drag, and 99yd obstacle course. Orange County had a different PAT; 1-mile run, pushups/situps, dummy drag, obstacle course and trigger pull.

        What I was told by an OC deputy was although each agency will have different variations, they all are POST compliant.

          Keep 'em coming!

          The reason I want to know is that an agency that I may apply to wants you to take the POST written test and POST PAT and just send them the results. They already said they would accept my PAT from another agency even though it wasn't POST. Now I need to take the written, I have taken it once but the score was no good(I'm positive they screwed it up somehow).

            I'm almost certain Gardena is on that list but don't quote me.

              To clarify, I am looking for agencies that send the test to POST and then send applicants their T score.

                Yeah, Riverside does NOT use the POST test. I took it today hoping to get a new T score but the test was administered on a computer and was basically a vocabulary test followed by a personality assessment.

                    Iron,

                    I too took the RSO test recently. Pretty wierd. I guess they just started using it. As you are taking it you have no way to know if you answered correctly. Kinda frustrating. The good part is there is no waiting; you find out right there. I passed...

                      I passed too, but all I wanted was the t score.

                        I took the Riverside test and failed, I qualified for corrections deputy. How do you pass a test like that?

                          Read, read, and then read some more. It's mostly vocabulary which can be improved by reading, but the second part was a personality test(like the MMPI) and there is no way you can study for that. I'm assuming they didn't tell which part you failed, so my best advice would be to try again after 6 months or however long they want you to wait.
