Which recruitment method is right for your department?

What's right for your agency? Whether it's through, or a Department-Exclusive entry exam & recruitment drive, we can work with your department to custom tailor your next recruitment process by using a variety of PES assessments to determine whether candidates possess two most powerful predictors of job performance; cognitive ability and integrity. If your department is looking for 'more than just a test' to screen your potential new hires, we have the tools you need to help attract qualified candidates to fill your vacancies.


The Written Exam: Our exams are used to identify those individuals candidate pool who are best suited for a career in law enforcement, and to ensure that those who are unsuited for a position with your agency are screened out. Candidates will be assessed on a battery of cognitive and non-cognitive dimensions needed to be a successful police officer. Our exam focus on utilizing tools and measures that have minimal adverse impact.


  • Cognitive Dimensions such as deductive reasoning, info gathering, written comprehension, written expression, and visualization, and

  • Non-Cognitive/Integrity Dimensions including integrity, morals, honesty, socialization, positive outlook, and orderliness.

By utilizing PES exams and recruitment services, your agency is providing for a fair, impartial, and transparent system of evaluating potential new hires.

The Written Exam Format: PES offers exam in two formats:

  • In-person exam with a set date and location, or

  • Remotely through our @Home Testing services on a scheduled session date and time, and live proctors to administer the exam to ensure the security and integrity is not jeopardized.


Quick Results: You get your candidates results fast, so you can hire faster! We are committed to releasing written exam scores within two-to-three business days from the date of the exam.


Adverse Impact to Protected Classes: Our exams are locally validated and were developed to measure minimal impact on protected classes.
