Study Guide and Practice Test Available

An optional Study Guide and Practice Test for the Police Officer written examination is available for applicants to purchase directly from the testing company. It is not necessary for an applicant to purchase a Study Guide or complete a Practice Test in order to pass the written test. However, applicants who take time to familiarize themselves with the test and ways to prepare for it may tend to feel more confident on the day of the test.
