Police Recruitment Training
Two examinations are suggested for testing the intelligence and aptitude of police candidates. Due to its simplicity, I recommend the use of the Army Alpha intelligence test. The Army Alpha should be merely a qualifying examination. In these days when a large number of candidates can be obtained, a minimum grade of 110 is desirable. At the same time the Army Alpha test is given, I suggest the partially standardized Test for Patrolmen, as prepared by the Bureau of Public Personnel Administration.3 Although deficient in several respects it represents the best available examination of police aptitude.
