McCann Entry Level Police Exam

Utilized at many police departments throughout the U.S., McCann Associates has established a highly standardized written exam that measures the work behaviors, attitudes, characteristics, abilities and skills essential for effective performance of law enforcement positions. The McCann Police test is comprised of two parts, each of which is timed and comes with its own booklet.

Booklet I contains an observation/memory portion that is contained in. Your abilities to observe details and memorize what you view are tested through the examination of a picture for a short period of time. After the picture question is removed you will be directed to answer questions requiring you to recall of information, analysis or conclusions to be drawn based on the information found in the picture. There are 30 short items, to be answered within a timeframe of 25 minutes.

Booklet II consists of 70 questions and has a time limit of 2 hours. The questions are about observation skills, reasoning and judgment. Your tasked with selecting best answer out of five alternatives. The last 11 questions in this Booklet, regarding text interpretation, are a bit longer. Therefore, as you keep track of time and pace yourself, leave enough time to complete these final items.

Keep in mind that no prior police training or experience is necessary for any of the answers. Most questions concern police scenarios.
