OACP Section B: Police Problem Solving

Section B includes 30 questions and is based on Police Problem-Solving. In the Police Problem Solving question, situations will be described in one or more paragraphs or in the form of a map. They are then followed by a number of questions, each with four choices, one of which is more correct than the others. Your task is to decide which of the choices is the correct one.


Read the following paragraph and decide if officer Jones' behavior was acceptable:

Officer Jones stops a car for a minor violation. She approaches the car, explains the violation to the driver, and asks him for his license and registration. Eventually, she writes him a ticket. After concluding the traffic stop and permitting the driver to continue on his way, the driver asks her if it would be alright for him to take her phone number and ask her out on a date. Officer Jones agrees and hands him her number. 

A. Acceptable. Since the driver was the one who asked her out, there was no inappropriate use of her authority.
B. Acceptable. The non-official interaction took place after the officer issued the citation.
C. Unacceptable. This kind of interaction is unethical and unprofessional.
D. Unacceptable. Officers are not supposed to interact with traffic violators once the traffic stop is complete.
Correct Answer
Incorrect Answer

The correct answer is C. This is a question about ethics. The scenario provides different justifications for a relationship between the officer and the driver – he’s the one who makes the offer, she impartially gave him a ticket, etc. Nonetheless, an officer's interaction with a person he or she has pulled over should be confined to professional duties only. The officer is a uniformed authority figure and the driver could be influenced by this information. Transforming the interaction into anything which is not professional is unethical, as is stated in answer choice C.
Note that response D also claims the officer’s behavior was unacceptable, but the rationalization in this answer choice is less accurate. The emphasis in this question is on ethics and law and the importance of following them without exception.

OACP Stage C: Personality Assessment (ESQ2 Test)

A police psychological exam is essentially a personality test that is also a very important step in the police hiring processMost law enforcement agencies use a psych test to measure a variety of job-related behaviors and personality traits and to help them pick the best applicants for a job as police officers. 

The police personality exam questions delve into your personal preferences and behavior and measure your personality, motivations, attitudes, and values. 

In OACP's Personality Assessment you'll face 30 multiple-choice questions that measure your propensity to engage in positive and negative behaviors in the context of work.

Each time you will be presented with statements and expected to choose from options how much they describe you. It's important to keep your answers consistent.

I like to keep everything in its place so I know just where it is

Strongly Disagree
Strongly Agree
Correct Answer
Incorrect Answer

The trait of order and organization reflects how well people are able to plan, build and manage their schedules over time.

High scores characterize organized and neat people who work systematically and take their time and the things of others seriously.
This is a highly desirable trait in the world of employment, and a high score is a prominent advantage in police job selection processes.

Low scores characterize people who are not organized or neat, tend to move disorderly between different tasks, and rarely succeed in carrying out what they have planned.
