The Lamar Institute of Technology Regional Police Academy will administer exams to cadet hopefuls during the month of June for the fall academy.

The exam allows potential students to continue on with the admission and eligibility process to enter the police academy, according to Ken Mason, assistant director of the Regional Police Academy at LIT.

“After they take the test, there are psychological, medical and drug screenings, and a background check before they are admitted into the academy,” he said.

There is a $15 fee and test-takers will have two-and-a-half hours to complete the exam, which consists of general knowledge questions, such as grammar, reading comprehension and punctuation.

Study guides may be obtained by calling Bannon & Associates at (512) 873-7931 and requesting a guide for the Law Enforcement Validation Entry-Level Exam, said Mason.

Group testing will be at 1 p.m., June 3; 9 a.m., June 7; 6 p.m., June 10; and 9 a.m., June 27.
