Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: Police Officer Exam, Fourth Edition targets anyone interested in a position in law enforcement, particularly recent high school graduates, two- and four-year college students, and military veterans. Although it is difficult to obtain overall statistics, criminal justice programs are expanding at numerous colleges, including many community colleges. There are indications that forensic-related majors are the fastest growing in the nation. Many students in forensic programs are interested in crime scene and crime lab positions, which in many jurisdictions are open primarily to sworn police officers. This may be one reason for the increasing police applicant pool - those who see entry into a police department as the way to reach a longer-term career goal. Police Officer Exam, Fourth Edition offers information about what tasks a police officer must perform, how to approach the suitability police officer exam, what vocabulary is helpful to know, the mathematical component of the exam, how to prepare for the physical abilities portion of the test, and what to expect from the oral interview, among other key elements of the exam.
