The leading psychological screening tool for law enforcement, now updated for the MMPI-3.

  • Clinical Findings—description of clinical-level symptoms, personality characteristics, and behavioral tendencies
  • Diagnostic Considerations—diagnostic possibilities indicated by test results
    Comparison Group Findings—substantive scale findings in the context of the police candidate comparison group
  • Job-Relevant Correlates—potential problems in 10 job domains identified as relevant to police candidate suitability
    Item-Level Information—list of unscorable responses, critical responses, optional user-designated item-level information, and critical follow-up items for police candidate evaluations
