  • Hanover Sheriff Dept

    Hello,
    Monday, April 2nd, I am taing my written exam. I was just wondering, what kind of questions to expect? This will be my first and hopefully last attempt for this test or any test at all. The only reason I ask this is because knowledge is power and I'm trying to prepare the best that I possibly can.
    Thank You,
    Brad

    I do not have all the information you want, but I will tell you how my test was that I took a couple weeks ago. If you have a general idea of law enforcement concepts you should do fine. I'm a senior at VCU and have spent the last 4 years studying criminal justice, so the basic concepts of the law came easy for me. My test consisted of a 25 minute study time where we were given a booklet that had information about common crimes (burglary, robbery, etc), how to collect evidence, radio use, and mug shots with descriptions. After the study time, we took the test. It was 100 questions and the first 20-25 related to the booklet. After that there were questions related to map reading (picking the fasted route, etc) picking diagrams that best re-enacted an accident scene from a paragraph, and also general law enforcement situations with how to respond. I was extremely nervous too, but felt great about it after I finished. I'd say I'm about 1/2 way through the process now, and my B.I. is being done. Good luck!

        Good agency, tough to get on with them (or so I am told). If you live in the county, you get a take-home vehicle and their equipment is pretty good.

        Anyway, it may seem minor semantics to mention it - but in Virginia it is a sheriff's office, not a 'department'. Police have departments. Even the news media will mess up that one!



        Good luck!!
