Promotional Testing Services

PA Specific First and Second Line Police Supervisor Tests (PA FLST and PA SLST) help to identify promotional candidates who possess the relevant job knowledge to be successful supervisors and managers. The cost-effective exams assess knowledge in areas such as:

  • Management/Supervision
  • Major Court Cases
  • Community Policing
  • Criminal Investigation
  • Patrol Tactics
  • PA Criminal Law and Vehicle Code

The exams can be easily integrated into the promotional process and measure both first-line supervisor (e.g Corporal, Sergeant) and second-line supervisor (e.g. Lieutenant, Captain). Each exam has 125 questions (multiple-choice and true/false) and candidate study guides are available to provide test takers with a recommended reading list, study tips and sample test questions. An exam administration guide is also available with step-by-step instructions.
