What does the PES/getbadged entry level exam assess?

The PES Entry Level exam for law enforcement is designed to assess two dimensions: Non-Cognitive traits including integrity, honesty, positive outlook, socialization, anti-social behavior, and diligence/orderliness. The Cognitive traits assessed include deductive reasoning, information gathering, written comprehension, written expression, problem sensitivity, and inductive reasoning. 

The Non-Cognitive section consists of scenario-based questions and are designed to learn more about candidates and how they would respond to certain situations. The answers to these questions and traits are not things someone can learn from a textbook. They are behavioral traits that are ingrained in us.  The Cognitive section is designed to assess a candidates ability to perform the basic fundamentals necessary to be a police officer.

Our exam series has been locally validated, and is designed to produce the least amount of adverse impact to the protected classes. 

Types of Public Safety Agencies we serve is designed to attract applicants with a broad spectrum of experience and qualifications, seeking positions in a variety of law enforcement agencies. To provide our candidates with the greatest number of hiring opportunities, we are pleased to offer a getbadged membership to any non-Civil Service agency looking to hire, including Municipal PD's, Campus PD's, Hospital and other non-Civil Service public safety departments. 

What are Badge Requests?

'Badging' capabilities are available to our Candidate and Department Premium Membership. A badge request is an innovative and interactive approach to an aggressive recruitment effort. The first of its kind, getbagded allows Premium Member departments the ability to search our entire list of eligible applicants, based solely on the town/city of residency, skills, qualifications, certifications, and vet status, of the candidates. When a department chooses to pursue a candidate for the purpose of potential employment, the hiring agency can send the candidate a 'badge request.' When a candidate receives a badge request, they can review the job post to make a determination on whether they are interested in the position. If the candidate accepts the badge request, a match is made and their application package with their complete profile, contact info, and any uploaded documents will be forwarded directly to the badging department for additional outreach. Candidates who receive badge requests have the option to accept or decline. Should a candidate decline the badge request, the department is notified and no additional is required.
