CPCA Entry Level Police Officer Exam

How It Works

Pay one fee + Take one exam = Valid test results for six months

Your six-month application eligibility period begins on the date you take the written exam. During this 6-month period, you may apply for any position advertised by a department participating in the CPCA program, provided you meet that department’s minimum score requirements, as well as any other department-specific prerequisites.

Ask a question about the exam


A single application fee of $95 covers your fee for a standardized written exam and all PoliceApp processing fees when you submit an application to a participating department (i.e., PoliceApp will waive your $16 processing fee if you apply to any department participating in this program) for a period of six months.

This program is similar to the CHIP Card, which allows you to take one Physical Ability Assessment and utilize the results for a 6-months period. In a similar manner, you can now take one Written Test and submit your score to any participating departments, for the same six-month period.

Please note that only processing fees will be covered through the CPCA Consortium. Some departments may choose to charge additional application fees, which the candidate will be responsible for.


Neither CPCA nor PoliceApp.com can control how many departments will recruit over the course of any given six-month period. A minimum number of open positions cannot be guaranteed. Each department is responsible for its own hiring standards, prerequisites, and hiring timeline. Departments may choose to charge an application fee in addition to the $95 test fee. No additional charges will be assessed by PoliceApp.com during the six-month eligibility period.
