  • Utah State Certification exam question

    Hello all,

    Question for fellow Utah LEO brothers: Soon to be joining the ranks here in Utah as a lateral from out of state. Taking the state exam soon and attempting to use the study guide packet POST gave me. My old state's exam was based on a core group of questions and was readily available to find online what those core groups were (4 groups; high liabilty, legal, traffic, and state laws/statutes) I understand there are 160 questions here for Utah's exam, but, what are the core group of questions? Not looking for actual questions/answers, but the core groups? I have scoured the POST website looking for this answer, but can't find it. The personnel at POST was not of any help. If you can provide a link or anything, I will research it myself, however, I could not find anything related to the state exam. Surely there is a breakdown of what I am looking for, but I can't find it.

    Any help would be appreciated. Again, not looking for cheats or actual Q/A's, but a breakdown of how it is grouped. If you all think this is an unethical question feel free to email me, and I will provide a phone number for you to call me and we can discuss what I am looking for. Again, I am not looking for anything that may be considered cheating or unethical at all.


    PM for email address.
