Pennsylvania State Police Cadet
Entry-Level (Trooper) Exam Prep
The Pennsylvania State Police have been accepting online applications via the state police website at PSP Application. The exam is a computer-based version of the Law Enforcement Aptitude Battery (LEAB) which includes a 2 hour and 30 minute time limit for a combined 158 questions. The Pennsylvania State Police entry-level written assessment is actually developed by a private vendor contracted by the Pennsylvania State Civil Service Commission (SCSC). The EB Jacobs company, as contracted by the State of Pennsylvania, has produced the Law Enforcement Aptitude Battery (LEAB). The LEAB is a 3-part assessment consisting of a 48 question Cognitive Abilities Test (CAT), 66 statement Work Styles Questionnaire (WSQ), and a 44 question Life Experience Survey (LES). Candidates must achieve a high composite score on the examination to proceed to the Oral Examination.
