The Allentown (PA) Police Department has been utilizing PSI (Talogy) as the vendor to write and administer the entry-level police officer exam. The specific exam commonly utilized is the Law Enforcement Aptitude Battery (LEAB™) which is a multi-factor psychometric test that has proven to be the most comprehensive, valid, and reliable entry-level law enforcement exam available nationally. This is the exact type of exam series that served as the basis of much of Chief Paprota’s doctoral research. In 2016, EB Jacobs introduced a new and expanded exam known as the LEAB-II™. In 2018, the Allentown Police Department used the new version of the exam. The new exam has additional dimensions and scales not commonly utilized in the past. Proper, on point, preparation is more important than ever in the very competitive process.

Chief Paprota has trained candidates all around the country for this specific and expanded exam, including but not limited to the following: New York State Police; Norfolk, Virginia; Pennsylvania State Police; Delaware State Police; Wilmington (DE) Police Department, and the Massachusetts State Police and state-wide testing pool.
