Quiz Answers: Can You Get Past the Board?

10) Please tell the panel where you see yourself in this agency in five years.

A) I’ll be in your job, Captain.

Bad Answer: May be a bit threatening to the Captain leading the oral board panel.

B) I don’t plan on being a cop on the street long. As soon as I can, I’m going to be a homicide detective.

Bad Answer: Shows impatience and unrealistic knowledge of how agency works.

C) First off, I want to be the best patrol officer that I can be. I want to learn and earn the respect of the agency and the community. After I’ve gotten settled on that, I want to work on my degree part-time and eventually work on preparing for the supervisory promotion process.

Good Answer: Shows realistic assessment of how to progress in the job. Shows concern for employer and community. Shows good goals.

D) I will be going to law school next year and am just doing the law enforcement job to give me a good background for a criminal defense law practice.

Bad Answer: Shows that the applicant cares only for him or herself. Agency will be concerned about putting time and money into applicant only to have them leave.

    I did well, however I could only imagine how much pressure I would be under hoping to answer these questions with all eyes on me.

    I was asked the following three scenarios:

    What would I do if I arrived to the scene and two men are fighting, both of them are bloody, one is on top of the other with a knife, but the one on the bottom is holding the wrist of the man on top to prevent him from stabbing him?

    #2
    What would I do if I arrived at the scene its dark and there is a building in which I hear a woman scream out, "please don't rape me, a single shot, and a man runs out of the building and flees. What would I do?

    #3
    I arrive at a convenience store, two men run out wearing masks, one has a bag in his and and they are both carrying guns, as they run out the see me and start shooting and running towards me. I return fire but my gun jams. What would I do?

    I did not pass the oral board by the way. I do think it was more of my failure to correctly complete the application and some errors in the dates of employment. Needed a 3 to go on but got a 2.55. Have at it folks.

    I've sat on several oral boards, and am glad to know that the answers we looked for are those that my colleagues also feel are indicative of a good candidate.

    Good test, however I just went through a oral board and only one of these questions were asked. Questions asked were centered around past experience..........wish I had looked at this first because the one question here that was asked I did not answer appropriately. LOL

    Loved the panel test although a lot comes if you have a passion for a Law enforcement career you should have knowledge of the job and what to expect.
