The Iowa Law Enforcement Academy conducts POST cognitive testing and MMPI testing and evaluations for sworn peace officers, civilian jailers, communication specialists, and reserve peace officers. The testing is conducted at ILEA and at local sites when requested. The Iowa Law Enforcement Academy will make referrals and provide a list of mental health professionals who are experienced in working with law enforcement officers in handling problems both on and off-duty. This includes exposure to critical incidents, chemical dependency problems, marital difficulties, etc.
The Academy provides information about Fitness for Duty Assessments including specific guidelines for conducting assessments and names of qualified mental health professionals. The Academy participates in critical incident stress debriefings and will provide information upon request about other debriefing teams throughout Iowa.
The POST and MMPI is given the first and third Tuesdays of each month. The POST is given at 11 and the MMPI at 1:30. To schedule a test, please call (515) 242-5357.
