*SPECIFICALLY FOR THE ONLINE ASSESSMENT PROCESS*

How2Become’s testing resource has been created to include the latest police recruitment information, and sample questions for the new online assessment process, introduced in May 2020 by the College of Policing. The online police assessment process includes the following: a situational judgement test (SJT), video interview (competency and values based), a written exercise, and briefing exercise.

WHAT IS THE POLICE ONLINE ASSESSMENT PROCESS

Before we tell you more about how our resource will help you to pass the online assessments, let’s first recap on what the process actually involves:

The College of Policing introduced the online assessment process in May 2020, which is used by all constabularies in the England and Wales for police constable applicants.

The police online assessment process includes four exercises which you MUST pass in order to become a police officer. These are as follows:

  1. A situational judgement test (SJT)
  2. A competency-based video interview
  3. A written exercise
  4. A briefing exercise

These exercises are designed to assess candidates against the competencies and values of policing. You will need to demonstrate specific competencies and values throughout each exercise to progress your application. This specific guide focuses on the Written exercise, stage 3a of the online assessment process.

The police written exercise is the third part of the online assessment process. You are permitted 40 minutes (in total) to complete this test. You will be given four separate articles to read, each relating to the given scenario.

Using only the information provided, you must write your response to a series of questions as if you were a serving police constable. To pass this exercise you will need to refer to the competencies and values of policing in your answers. You are not permitted to use any external material or resources to help form your answers.

TIPS TO HELP YOU PREPARE FOR THE ONLINE ASSESSMENT PROCESS – BRIEFING EXERCISE

TIP 1 – PREPARE YOUR ENVIRONMENT

The briefing exercise is the final part of the police online assessment process. You are permitted 46 minutes (in total) to complete this test. Of this, 10 minutes is allocated to reading the exercise and supplementary questions, and the remaining 36 minutes is allocated to answering all of the questions related to the scenario.

This exercise is split into three parts, with each part containing additional information and supplementary questions you must answer. Remember, you will have to answer each of the questions as if you are a serving police constable.

So, to be successful you will need to prepare your environment in advance to give yourself the best possible chance of passing the test. It may be worth considering the following:

  • Ensure you have a stable internet connection;
  • You are in a well lit area and are seated comfortably;
  • Your environment is free of distractions and noise;
  • Take the test when your concentration levels are at their peak.

TIP 2 – DISREGARD IRRELEVANT INFORMATION 

When you read through the exercise and the questions you will notice that some of the information is irrelevant to the questions you are being asked. This is purposely included to challenge your thought process and your skills of assessing the information. Always refer back to the questions and only include information which is relevant to the exercise.

Understand the competencies and values framework

TIP 3 – UNDERSTAND THE CVF

The police briefing exercise is assessed on your ability to demonstrate one value and four competencies. These are as follows:

  • Values – Public service
  • Competencies – Emotionally aware; Taking ownership and innovative and open minded.

It is vital that you have a solid understanding of each of these competencies and values, and more importantly know how to include these in your responses to the scenarios.

TIP 4 – ENSURE RESPONSES ARE CLEAR AND STRUCTURED

Remember, you are being assessed on your ability to communicate effectively. Therefore, you must construct your responses in a logical and concise manner, being sure to directly answer the questions you have been asked.

Sample Police OAP Briefing Exercise Question

To help you get a better understanding of the police briefing exercise, let’s take a quick look at a sample question.

POLICE BRIEFING EXERCISE QUESTION (STAGE 3b/Exercise 4)

Read the below brief that you have received from your Sergeant:

Yesterday we received the 8th call this week from a shop owner in Ficshire Town Square. Ms Booth was approached by a large group of teenagers – who have begun loitering in the square – as she left her boutique on a Tuesday afternoon to get some lunch. The group surrounded Ms Booth and demanded she buy them alcohol from the nearby convenience store or they would throw a brick through her shop window.

  1. Highlight the issues the community are facing.
  2. What concerns will this raise within the community?
  3. What can be done to reduce these incidents?
  4. What are the risks to yourself policing this incident?
  5. What are your recommendations for addressing the issues?

In your responses for questions 1-5 points you could have covered:

  • Teenagers are behaving anti-socially and intimidating shop owners in the square.
  • Potentially under-age teenagers are seeking an adult to purchase alcohol for them.
  • The negative affect of this is people may become scared to shop in the Town Square for fear of being threatened or intimidated.
  • Where else could the teenagers hang out? Is there a more suitable location?
  • Extra patrols through the Town Square could act as a deterrent for the teenagers.
  • When resolving issues with a group or individuals who are known to be hostile you must be aware of, and factor in, your own safety and that of your colleagues and the general public. Recommending patrols are carried out in pairs will reduce the risk of a constable entering a dangerous situation by themselves.
