    The increasing demands upon our highways from a growing population and the development of forms of transportation not anticipated when the highways were first built have brought about congestion, confusion, and conflict until the yearly toll of traffic accidents is now at an appalling level. If the death and disaster that traffic accidents bring throughout the year were concentrated into one calamity, we would shudder at the tremendous catastrophe. The loss is no less catastrophic because it is spread out over time and space. Which one of the following statements concerning the yearly toll of traffic accidents is best supported by the passage above?

    • A.

      It is increasing the demands for safer means of transportation.

    • B.

      It has resulted in increased congestion, confusion, and conflict on our highways.

    • C.

      It does not shock us as much as it should because the accidents do not all occur together.

    • D.

      It has resulted mainly from the new forms of transportation.

    Correct Answer
    C. It does not shock us as much as it should because the accidents do not all occur together.
    Explanation
    The passage states that if the death and disaster from traffic accidents were concentrated into one calamity, it would be a tremendous catastrophe. This suggests that the current toll of traffic accidents, spread out over time and space, does not shock us as much as it should. Thus, the statement that best aligns with this idea is "It does not shock us as much as it should because the accidents do not all occur together."

     When conducting a fugitive investigation an investigator can use many different sources of information. The more information that an investigator has the easier it will be to locate the fugitive. Most of the information that an investigator needs may be obtained by interviewing the fugitives associates. The information obtained from the fugitive's friends and relatives may lead to where he is hiding. Other sources of information such as a driver's license or social security number may help an investigator to determine what alias the fugitive is using. The mail delivered by the Postal Service and telephone records may disclose the location of the fugitive. Every source of information that the investigator has access to should be obtained.  Which of the following statements is best supported by this paragraph?

    • A.

      Computer checks on a drivers license, telephone records or social security number should be used if the investigator cannot locate the fugitive by other means.

    • B.

      An investigator who conducts a thorough interview of the fugitives friends and family members will be able to identify the fugitives whereabouts.

    • C.

      Because a court order is needed to view any mail delivered by the Postal Service, an investigator should use this resource as a last resort.

    • D.

      The best source of information for obtaining any aliases that the fugitive may be using is a drivers license inquiry or a review of the fugitives social security number.

    • E.

      The key to any fugitive investigation is for the investigator to utilize all the informational resources available.

    Correct Answer
    E. The key to any fugitive investigation is for the investigator to utilize all the informational resources available.
    Explanation
    The paragraph emphasizes the importance of utilizing all available sources of information in a fugitive investigation. It states that interviewing the fugitive's associates can provide valuable information about their whereabouts, and other sources such as driver's license or social security number can help determine the alias being used. It also mentions that mail and telephone records can disclose the fugitive's location. Therefore, the statement "The key to any fugitive investigation is for the investigator to utilize all the informational resources available" is best supported by the paragraph.

    An odometer on a squad car shows that the car has been driven a total of 735 miles during a one week period. What is the average number of miles the car was driven each day during that one week period?

    • A.

      105 miles

    • B.

    • D.

      245 miles

    • E.

      None of these

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The average number of miles the car was driven each day during the one week period can be calculated by dividing the total number of miles driven (735 miles) by the number of days in a week (7 days). Therefore, 735 miles divided by 7 days equals 105 miles per day.

    Tardiness is reporting for work in excess of 5 minutes beyond the scheduled starting time of the shift or as provided in Police Department rules. Any and all tardiness shall be counted as an “instance”. When an employee reports to work within a period that is more than five (5) minutes after his/her scheduled starting time, and provides an excuse that is acceptable in the sole discretion of Management, the employee may elect to utilize Earned Personal Leave. Election of Earned Personal Leave shall be taken in one (1) hour increments. The utilization of Earned Personal Leave does not negate the tardiness as an instance. An annual period shall be defined as a twelve (12) month period beginning with the occurrence of the employee’s first tardiness instance. Employees shall be disciplined for instances of tardiness in an annual period in accordance with the following schedule: Number of Tardy Instances                                                                Discipline  9th instance in annual period............................................................Written warning  10th instance in annual period.........................................................

    • B.

      A 12 month period beginning with the first unexcused occurrence of the employee’s first tardiness.

    • C.

    • D.

      A 12 month period that begins on January 1st and ends on December 31st.

    • E.

      Not enough information to answer.

    Correct Answer
    A. A 12 month period beginning with the employee’s first tardiness instance.
    Explanation
    The annual period for determining the total number of tardiness occurrences is defined as a 12 month period beginning with the employee's first tardiness instance. This means that once an employee is tardy for the first time, the 12 month period starts and any subsequent tardiness instances within that period will be counted towards disciplinary actions.

    Officer Milton visits local area businesses as part of a theft prevention program. If Officer Milton visits three area businesses every week, except for his three-week vacation, how many groups does he visit in one year?

    • A.

      49

    • B.

      98

    • C.

      147

    • D.

      150

    • E.

      166

    Correct Answer
    C. 147
    Explanation
    Officer Milton visits three area businesses every week, except for his three-week vacation. In one year, there are 52 weeks. So, Officer Milton will visit 3 x 52 = 156 area businesses in one year. However, since he takes a three-week vacation, we need to subtract those three weeks. Therefore, the number of groups Officer Milton visits in one year is 156 - 3 = 153. The correct answer is 147, which is the closest option to 153.

      Spencer has waited three years for his burglary charge to go to trial.

    Correct Answer
    D. Manuel, who was found not guilty in the murder of his wife, cannot be tried again after new evidence is found.
    Explanation
    The Fifth Amendment protects citizens against violations of due process in criminal proceedings. It specifically prohibits double jeopardy, which means that a person cannot be tried again for the same crime after being found not guilty. This aligns with the situation described in the answer choice, where Manuel cannot be tried again after new evidence is found, as he has already been acquitted of the murder charge.

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    A misdemeanor refers to a crime that is punishable by a fine, a year or less in jail, or both. This means that if someone commits a misdemeanor, they may be required to pay a fine, serve a jail sentence of up to one year, or both. Misdemeanors are considered less serious offenses compared to felonies, which carry more severe punishments.

    A defendant in California was sentenced to 25 years to life for stealing 3 golf clubs.  On appeal, the U.S. Supreme Court:

    • A.

      Overturned the sentence because a punishment so out of proportion to the crime amounts to cruel and unusual punishment.

    • B.

      Upheld the sentence because the crime had interfered with a judge's Sunday golf game.

    • C.

      Upheld the sentence because the Constitution doesn't really require the punishment to fit the crime.

    • D.

      Overturned the sentence because it violated the 14th Amendment.

    Correct Answer
    C. Upheld the sentence because the Constitution doesn't really require the punishment to fit the crime.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is that the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the sentence because the Constitution doesn't really require the punishment to fit the crime. This means that the Court determined that there is no constitutional requirement for the punishment to be proportional to the crime committed. Therefore, even though the sentence of 25 years to life for stealing 3 golf clubs may seem excessive, it does not violate the Constitution.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    What part of the U.S. Constitution protects people from unreasonable searches and seizures?

      All of it

    • B.

      The Fifth Amendment

    • C.

      The Fourteenth Amendment

    • D.

      The Fourth Amendment

    Correct Answer
    D. The Fourth Amendment
    Explanation
    The Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution protects people from unreasonable searches and seizures. It states that individuals have the right to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, and that warrants must be based on probable cause and describe the specific place to be searched or the person or things to be seized. This amendment is important in safeguarding individuals' privacy and preventing the government from conducting intrusive searches without justification.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    The Fourth Amendment generally requires arrests and searches to be authorized by a warrant.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The Fourth Amendment generally requires arrests and searches to be authorized by a warrant. This statement is false. While the Fourth Amendment does protect against unreasonable searches and seizures, it does not always require a warrant. There are certain exceptions to the warrant requirement, such as when there is probable cause to believe that a crime has been committed or in cases of emergency. Additionally, the Supreme Court has recognized other circumstances where warrantless searches may be permissible, such as consent searches or searches incident to a lawful arrest.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    If a defendant's confession is obtained in violation of his constitutional rights, it can never be used against him in court.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    If a defendant's confession is obtained in violation of his constitutional rights, it can still be used against him in court. The exclusionary rule, which is a legal principle, states that evidence obtained unlawfully or in violation of the defendant's constitutional rights cannot be used against them. However, there are exceptions to this rule, such as the "good faith" exception, where the evidence can still be admitted if the police officers believed in good faith that they were acting lawfully. Therefore, the statement that the confession can never be used against the defendant is false.

    The F.B.I. has the authority to take over cases from local law enforcement officials.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because the F.B.I. does not have the authority to take over cases from local law enforcement officials. The F.B.I. primarily focuses on federal crimes and investigations, while local law enforcement agencies handle cases within their jurisdiction. However, the F.B.I. may provide assistance and support to local law enforcement agencies if requested or if the case involves a federal offense.

    You and your partner respond to a combative male. The suspect spits on your partner after he is handcuffed. Your partner punches the suspect while in custody. How would you handle this situation? WHAT IS THE LEAST APPROPRIATE RESPONSE?

    • A.

      Don’t question your partner but report the incident to his supervisor.

    • B.

      Don’t tell anyone; just keep the incident to yourself.

    • C.

      Tell your partner that his behavior was inappropriate and that if he reacts this way again that you will report his behavior to his supervisor.

    • D.

      Tell the officer that his behavior was inappropriate and that he needs to tell his supervisor or else you will.

    Correct Answer
    B. Don’t tell anyone; just keep the incident to yourself.
    Explanation
    The least appropriate response is to not tell anyone and keep the incident to yourself. This response fails to address the inappropriate behavior of the partner, allowing it to go unreported and potentially enabling further misconduct in the future. It is important to hold accountable any officer who engages in inappropriate behavior, especially when it involves excessive force. Reporting the incident to the supervisor ensures that the appropriate actions can be taken to address the issue and prevent it from happening again.

Confiscate the driver’’s license. 2. Prepare a Seized Driver’’s License Receipt/Report. 3. Give the driver the receipt for the license. 4. Make sure the vehicle is parked legally until the registered owner of the vehicle can arrange to have the vehicle removed by a licensed operator. 5. If the driver has two or more unrelated suspensions or his license has been revoked for any reason, arrest and transport the driver to the precinct. The instructor gives the class the following example: Officers who observed a motorist driving erratically stopped him and asked to see his license and registration. The license has been revoked, although the car's registration appeared valid. What should the officers do next?

    • A.

      Confiscate the driver's license.

    • B.

      Prepare a Seized Driver's License Receipt/Report.

    • C.

      Arrest the driver and transport him to the precinct.

    • D.

      Direct the driver to park the vehicle in a legal space.

    Correct Answer
    A. Confiscate the driver's license.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is to confiscate the driver's license. This is because the instructor stated that when officers stop a vehicle and discover that the operator is driving with a revoked or suspended license, the first step is to confiscate the driver's license. This ensures that the driver cannot continue driving with a revoked or suspended license.

    During a simulation exercise, recruits at the Academy learn that as officers, they may have cause to investigate suspected drug laboratories. In this instance, an immediate notification must be made to the desk officer of the precinct of occurrence, so that the Police Laboratory can send a chemist to the scene. Certain substances in a laboratory are highly volatile; therefore, ALL members of the service will follow these safety guidelines:  1.Ventilate the laboratory by opening doors and windows. 2.DO NOT turn on lights or use flashlights until the area is well ventilated. If necessary to enter prior to the room being ventilated, a flashlight should be turned on BEFORE entering the area. 3.DO NOT smoke at the scene. 4.Use your nose. If vapors are very strong or there is any odor of bitter almonds, remain outside and await arrival of the laboratory chemist. 5.DO NOT use department radios while inside the laboratory. 6.DO NOT disturb flasks or containers that are being heated or cooled. Direct the attention of the chemist to such items. 7.DO NOT allow acid and cyanide to be mixed or come together. The fumes from this mixture can cause death. Based on this information, it would be most correct for the recruits to conclude that the primary concern behind these guidelines is:  

    • A.

      Proper control of evidence at a possible crime scene until a search warrant can be obtained.

    • B.

      Safety of the officers concerning possible explosions or exposure to fumes.

    • C.

      Keeping officers from accidental or intentional exposure to controlled substances (e.g. narcotics).

    • D.

      Preservation of confidentiality concerning the nature of the situation.

    Correct Answer
    B. Safety of the officers concerning possible explosions or exposure to fumes.
    Explanation
    The recruits should conclude that the primary concern behind these guidelines is the safety of the officers concerning possible explosions or exposure to fumes. This is evident from the guidelines that emphasize the need to ventilate the laboratory, not turning on lights or using flashlights until the area is well ventilated, not smoking at the scene, and using the sense of smell to detect strong vapors or odor of bitter almonds. These guidelines aim to protect the officers from potential hazards and ensure their safety during investigations of suspected drug laboratories.

The van driver was John Hudson, age 36, residing at 1102 South Elliot Blvd., Cranford, N.J. He was driving a white 2001 GMC van, N.Y. license plate 9723GH, owned by his employer, Zenith Trucking Corp. of 257 West 63rd St., New York, N.Y. Mr. Hudson’’s N.J. driver’’s license identification number is H1385 69774 58612 and the expiration date is December 31, 2004. The driver of the auto was Mrs. Anne Cloris, age 38, residing at 49 Christopher Avenue, Queens, New York. She had two children with her, Charles Cloris Jr., age 10, and Anita Cloris, age 8. Mrs. Cloris’’ auto was a red 2003 Chevrolet 4-door station wagon, NY license plate #319GAZ. Mrs. Cloris’’ NY driver’’s license identification number is 121 921 661 and the expiration date is May 31, 2005. The officers examined both vehicles for damage from the accident and found that the van had a dented rear panel on its left side and that the auto had a dented right front fender.

    Correct Answer
    B. 10:10 A.M.

    The traffic accident occurred at 10:10 A.M. This can be determined from the information provided in the passage. The officers arrived at the scene five minutes after the accident occurred, which was reported to the dispatcher at 10:20 A.M. Therefore, if they arrived five minutes after the accident, it means the accident happened at 10:15 A.M. Subtracting the five minutes, we can conclude that the accident occurred at 10:10 A.M.

Mrs. Johnston, age 35, a housewife, who lives in Apt. 23C located directly opposite the elevator, tells Officer Paradiso that she heard voices in the hallway outside her apartment door at 4:30 P.M. She thought that the voices were those of a neighbor’’s children who sometimes play in the hallway. She opened her door to chase them away but, instead, saw two strange males standing by the elevator. They wore green work clothes. She noticed that the taller man was white, about 28 years old, 5'11", 165 lbs., with brown hair and was carrying a square leather case. The other man was Hispanic, about 21 years old, 5'7", 150 lbs., with black hair and a scar on the left side of his face. Officer Paradiso then contacts other residents at apartment 23D, 23E, and 23G. All of them tell the officer that they did not see or hear anything unusual. Officer Paradiso then returns to the Keglers’’ apartment to tell his partner what he learned. In the meantime, Mr. Kegler had told Officer Ponder that his coin collection was in a square brown leather carrying case. Officer Ponder was also told that Mr. Kegler is 42 years old. His telephone number at work is 827- 6138 and his work address is 273 Eastern Avenue. Mrs. Kegler’’s telephone number at work is 746- 3279 and her work address is 131 South Moore Street. The Kegler’’s home telephone number is 653-3946. Mrs. Johnston’’s telephone number at home is 653-2714. Officers Ponder and Paradiso finish their investigation and complete the crime report.
