National Testing Network Recognized by Governing Magazine

LYNNWOOD, Wash. - July 16, 2019 - PRLog -- National Testing Network, Inc. (NTN), the leader in recruitment support and employment testing for public safety departments was recognized last month by Governing Magazine for helping agencies properly screen police officer candidates for interpersonal skills and decision making.

In the article, Governing Magazine highlights NTN's success with the City of Baltimore Police Department and Metropolitan DC Police Department for adopting a new testing and screening process to measure human relations skill sets and emotional intelligence. This nationally validated, law enforcement video-simulation exam has been adopted by over 600 agencies of all sizes throughout the U.S., and to date has been used to test hundreds-of-thousands of candidates for NTN's clients.

NTN's state-of-the-art online testing  includes video simulations that depict scenarios candidates would actually encounter while on the job. After viewing the job specific scenarios, applicants are asked how they would respond in a particular situation. Video simulation testing has been proven to be more effective than traditional paper-and-pencil testing in helping public safety departments find applicants who are the best fit for the job. NTN's innovative approach is designed to directly assist agencies on a national level to find "More Good Cops" per the article, and to combat the ongoing epidemic the country is facing regarding police shortages and public distrust.

The article references that in 2016, The City of Baltimore was placed under court oversight by the U.S. Department of Justice due to police activity that included excessive force, unjustified stops, seizures and arrests.  The City approached NTN to provide online candidate recruitment and testing at sites locally and nationally to identify a viable testing solution. The City and USDOJ agreed that NTN could address these serious officer challenges by identifying only those candidates best suited for the job.
