Protecting the public is an important job.
We are proud to support future public safety officers in obtaining certification under the Act 235 Lethal Weapons and Act 120 Municipal Police Statutes. We want to make these evaluations affordable and efficient while at the same time ensuring that the candidate is a good fit for the job.
The Act 235 Lethal Weapons Training Act is intended to certify that individuals such as security personnel, detective, or criminal investigators who use lethal weapons as part of their job, are “psychologically capable to exercise appropriate judgment or restraint to handle a lethal weapon.”
Act 120 applies to applicants to police departments in Pennsylvania who must complete Municipal Police Officers’ Education and Training Commission exam (MPOETC) and also includes a psychological examination.
The evaluation involves meeting with one of our psychologists for a one-hour interview in which we obtain background information as outlined in the statute. You will also complete the MMPI-3. In some cases, we will ask you to complete additional measures if we cannot obtain all the information we need to make a recommendation. Additional testing is billed separately. After your evaluation, we will submit a written report on your behalf within 15 days of the evaluation.
We also are pleased to offer Act 59 Post-traumatic stress disorder/fitness for duty evaluations.
