  • Psychological fitness exam?

    I have received a conditional offer for a local pd in the Sacramento area and only have the medical exam and a psychological fitness exam left. Has anyone heard of a psychological fitness exam?

    Psych testing has been in use since the 60s or 70s. I doubt there are any PDs in the country that don't give a psych test.

    I don't think It'll happen in the US because we don't trust our government. We are a country of skeptics, raised by skeptics, founded by skeptics. - Amaroq

      From what I have heard, this isn't a ordinary psych test. I guess the psychological fitness for duty exam is different from the ordinary.

        I don't think so. One agency says tomato and another says tomahto.

        It is the usual psych test, which consists of the MMPI and a sit down with a psych doctor afterwards.

        If you pass then you will be psychologically fit to be a police officer, hence the name, "psychological fitness exam."

            Have you taken one before? If I'm right you should have a test (MMPI) that consists of like 400 something questions, which takes about two to four hours to complete. After the test the psych doc. will interview you for anywhere between 15 minutes to an hour.
