    But the question said at a later time. Does anyone here remember the exact question and exact answers for that question ?

      As a "human" taking this test, and reading that question, many might think that the more correct thing to do is to leave a note with all information for that person to get in touch with the agency to start the insurance process. In my mind, the correct answer for this one could have been either one. Just my opinion.
      I'm a LEO and like they always say when in doubt call 1800-supervisor. That's why I picked notify supervisor. He crashed a department vehicle. And from what I've seen in tbta sergeants are always doing accident ppw. This was the only question that I was 50/50

        I don't remember the question number. It definitely did say notify a supervisor at a later time, which I remember thinking was odd too but I still went with that answer. The other possible answer was like you said, leave a note. Think of it this way though, leaving a note and contacting a supervisor at a later time both seem to put off dealing with the situation immediately, so I still think contacting the supervisor is the better answer. The other 2 "possibilities" were a joke but I think they were similar. One of them was something like "drive away immediately and say nothing". Can't remember the last one.

        I get what everyone's saying. How would we know the policy? While leaving a note seems like it could be the right thing to do, the point is we just don't know. When in doubt, you notify a supervisor. If it turns out notifying the supervisor was correct, you should definitely protest because it could be argued that leaving a note could be considered trying to do the right thing. If it turns out leaving the note WAS the correct choice, I'm going to protest and argue that we can't possibly be expected to know what to do in that situation and would need to contact the supervisor to be sure.

          I agree calling the supervisor when your in doubt is the right thing but the answer seemed like okay I hit this car I'll tell the supervisor tomorrow when I start my tour. It was a very bad question with bad answers. They should of given us a policy and had us answer the question with that .

          • There should of been an answer like notify a supervisor and wait for him or her to show up to conduct an investigation.

              I agree, this is why I chose to leave a note as the answer.

                I think it said "Notify a supervisor and figure it out at a later time"

                Which sort of seemed like a carefree sort of response, which is why I chose to leave a note with all the contact information.

                  what you said about the question is pretty much correct.

                  • I beleive leaving the note was the best answer because after leaving the note with all your info on it i would contact a supervisor immediatly . The question did not finish that option for you. They just gave you the first half of that option. THE SECOND THE QUESTION READ CONTACT A SUPERVISOR AT A LATER TIME. " LATER TIME" CHANGED EVERYTHING

                    • I 've also chose to leave a note... Asking to contact your supervisor at a later time.. meaning what? the following day, week from the accident? what if that car is no longer park there? Best to leave all your information so that person will be able to reach you.

                        Yes and we can't talk about mta'a BTO policy because that wasn't part of the question. These question you have to use no outside knowledge of anything but what's in front of you. There's been times where I was asked medical questions and I knew what the real answer was but I had to base my answer on the content they gave me on the test.

                          It was something like, you're near the end of your shift and go to park your patrol vehicle between 2 cars. As you back your car into the spot you hear a loud bang. You get out and see broken glass and a cracked windshield what do you do? The answer choices i remember were leave and let them take it as a lesson not to park like that, leave the note, notify a supervisor at a later time. Not quoted verbatim but close enough.

                            Question: You're near the end of your shift and go to park your patrol vehicle between 2 cars. As you back your car into the spot you hear a loud bang. You get out and see broken glass and a cracked windshield what do you do?

                            Possible Answers:
                            - Leave a note on the cars windshield with contact info
                            - Notify a supervisor at a later time
                            - Quickly drive away (or similar)
                            - Note that the owner of the car should learn to park better next time (or similar)

                            The above is not verbatim, but it's pretty close

                            • Well B is clearly the answer. It's the end of the officers tour. By telling the Sgt now he will surely get overtime out of it.

                                Well if it's the end of your tour and you tell your SGT "at a letter time " wouldn't that the some other time? It's the end of your tour. If it said tell the supervisor before you leave your tour then I would agree with you.But I strongly disagree with you saying B is clearly the answer.None of the answers are right there all stupid.
