Alternative Written Test Locations

In an attempt to attract a talented and diverse workforce, MPD conducts a nationwide recruitment campaign. One of the initiatives designed to promote participation in our hiring process is off-site written testing. Check back for future venues.

Any questions regarding these tests should be directed to Sergeant Mike Koval, (608) 266-4379, with the City of Madison Police Department. PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT THE UNIVERSITIES WITH QUESTIONS.

You have the option of taking the written test at one of the above locations. If you opt to take an off-site venue exam, no prior registration is necessary, you need not have a completed application on file and there are no fees involved! Simply bring along a form of photo identification.

The test is a multiple choice, English vocabulary and reading comprehension assessment. A COMPREHENSIVE ESSAY WILL ALSO BE GIVEN AT THE WRITTEN EXAM AND SHOULD BE REVIEWED PRIOR TO ARRIVAL. (See Written Test Explanation for more details.) We strive to give feedback within 7-10 business days.

If you choose to take the test in Madison, submit your application and you will be mailed notification of your scheduled test date and time. Those who take the written test at off-site venues will ultimately have to undergo additional testing in Madison.
