Employment Testing P.T., P.O.S.T, and M.M.P.I-2


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 assist sheriffs’ offices and civil service commissions with promotional testing for sworn personnel in sheriffs’ offices. This testing can be conducted at the ILEA or at the local agency.

The Iowa Law Enforcement Academy can 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. These clinicians can perform  Fitness for Duty Assessments and critical incident stress debriefings.

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) 725-9600.
