FAQs

Is a CHIP card required before I can take the LEC Regional Entry Exam?

No. Individual departments may accept or require the CHIP, but it is not a pre-requisite for the LEC Regional Entry Exam.


Do I need a high school diploma or GED to take the LEC Regional Entry Exam?

Yes.


How old do I need to be to take the LEC Regional Entry Exam?

There is no maximum age, but you must be 21 on or before your scheduled exam to take the test.


When and how can I get my exam results?

You will receive your results within a week – generally results are available within a few days of the test. When available, you can find your score on the PoliceApp Dashboard upon logging in to the site.


I’m not happy with my score. Do I have to wait the duration of the 1 year for my score to expire, or can I retake the exam at any time?

If you fail to achieve a passing score of 70, you may retake the examination in 6 months. If you pass the exam, regardless of your score, you must wait 1 year to be eligible to retake the exam.


Can I renew my LEC Regional Entry Exam application after my 1 year eligibility period ends?

After your application eligibility period has ended, you may renew your eligibility by taking the written exam again and paying a full $85 application fee. Your eligibility will not be automatically renewed.


Why can’t I review my test results to find out which questions I got wrong?

It is not our role to prepare you for future tests, nor to provide you with a test analysis. There are many resources available on the web to help prepare you to excel in entry-level police exams. Many of the books available have practice test questions which offer a detailed analysis of each multiple choice question and why a specific answer is the correct answer.

In order to maintain the credibility of the testing process, applicants cannot review their examination.


What can I do to prepare myself for the LEC Regional Entry Exam?

Police applicants are required to have a high school degree or a General Education Degree (GED). The LEC entry level examination tests high school-level math, spelling, grammar, punctuation, and reading comprehension.

Prepare to become a police officer by attending college and enroll in a Criminal Justice program. Among other things, this will help you with your test-taking skills. Purchase textbooks which offer entry-level examinations and an analysis of what the correct answers are and why. Become an avid reader to increase your reading comprehension skills.


What do I have to bring and how should I dress?

You must bring a photo ID with you to the testing center. Casual, comfortable dress is suggested.
