In February 2003, the North Carolina Association of Chiefs of Police partnered with Stanard & Associates, Inc. to offer law enforcement agencies a legally defensible, nationally validated examination that is designed to identify candidates who possess the skills necessary to succeed as an entry level law enforcement officer. NCACP took this action in recognition of the fact that law enforcement administrators are faced with many challenges in today's public safety environment and must assemble the best and brightest for their agencies.

In January 2010, the NCACP expanded the testing program to include First and Second Line Supervisor promotional exams and Dispatcher exams.  Detective/Investigator exams were added in 2014.  NCACP is proud to offer this service to law enforcement agencies throughout North Carolina because these exams afford the agencies the opportunity to hire and promote highly motivated and knowledgeable personnel through inexpensive and very effective exams.

The North Carolina Association of Chiefs of Police is one of 25 police chiefs associations nationwide that has adopted the National Police Officer Selection exam program offered by Stanard and Associates. There are more than 1,500 agencies nationwide that are utilizing this nationally validated examination, including many throughout North Carolina . You do not have to be a member of the North Carolina Association of Chiefs of Police to purchase these exams.
