Course Description

This intermediate-level workshop for licensed psychologists will focus on the preparation of written reports of preemployment psychological evaluations of police officer candidates with the goal of optimizing efficiency, defensibility, transparency, and relevance. The workshop will discuss methods on how to structure and prepare a report aimed at seven potential readers (the hiring agency, candidate, second-opinion psychologist or other expert reviewer, legal counsel, civil service commission, court of ultimate jurisdiction, and licensing board/ethics committee). Participants will learn how to integrate information from the MMPI-2-RF Police Candidate Interpretive Report® (PCIR; Corey & Ben-Porath, 2014) and other assessment findings and records to support evidence-based conclusions about a candidate’s suitability for employment as a law enforcement officer.
