As part of the Tasmania Police selection process, applicants will be required to participate in a series of aptitude and problem solving tests.  These tests are designed to assess your suitability to undertake the academic content of the Tasmania Police Recruit Training Course Curriculum as well as your ability to successfully fulfill the role of a police officer.

No feedback concerning the outcomes of the assessments is available.

Applicants may only undertake the testing once every 12 months.  If you are unsuccessful, you will need to wait 12 months before submitting another Expression of Interest.

Online Testing procedure

Tasmania Police will no longer be offering pencil and paper assessments.

SAFESELECT and Criteria, our service providers, have migrated to online testing which incorporates game based cognify testing, emotional testing and psychometric testing.

The Cognify testing assesses problem solving ability, numerical reasoning and verbal knowledge through six mini-games which applicants will have to complete.

The Emotional Testing (Emotify) measures emotional intelligence, emotional perception and understanding. This is important in a policing role as we often have to assess the emotions people are feeling when dealing with them.

The tests are designed to assess an applicant’s ability to think quickly and logically demonstrating their reading, writing and numerical ability as well as an ability to solve problems through computer-based games. It is also to assesses an applicant’s ability to accurately perceive emotions and react accordingly.
