The Testing Process to become an officer at the Rogers Police Department has three major components: a written exam, a physical agility test, and two oral interviews. You must pass each event to be able to proceed to the next component of the testing process.
Candidates who fail any portion of the selection process are disqualified, however,you may re-test one other time during the calendar year.
The written exam is designed to test general knowledge. The exam consists of problem solving, reading comprehension, writing ability, mathematics, and an attitude and personality component.
The National Criminal Justice Officer Selection Inventory (NCJOSI) was developed as an alternative to conventional law enforcement and correctional officer written entrance examinations and includes both a cognitive (problem solving) component and an attitude/personality (criminal justice officer orientation) component.
You will have 1 hour and 30 minutes to answer 87 questions on the exam, which consists of 45 general knowledge questions and 42 personality questions.
