Massachusetts Chiefs of Police Association

PoliceApp has partnered with the Massachusetts Chiefs of Police Association (MCOPA) to offer regionalized testing and recruitment.

How It Works

Pay one fee + Take one exam = Valid test results for six months

Your six-month application eligibility period begins on the date you take the written exam. During this 6-month period, you may apply for any position advertised by a department participating in the MCOPA program, provided you meet that department’s minimum score requirements, as well as any other department-specific prerequisites.

A single application fee of $120 covers your fee for a standardized written exam and all PoliceApp processing fees when you submit an application to a participating department (i.e., PoliceApp will waive your $35 processing fee if you apply to any department participating in this program) for a period of six months.

Please note that only processing fees will be covered through the MCOPA Consortium. Some departments may choose to charge additional application fees, which the candidate will be responsible for.


Neither MCOPA nor PoliceApp can control how many departments will recruit over the course of any given six-month period. A minimum number of open positions cannot be guaranteed. Each department is responsible for its own hiring standards, prerequisites, and hiring timeline. Departments may choose to charge an application fee in addition to the $120 test fee. No additional charges will be assessed by PoliceApp during the six-month eligibility period.   The $120.00 Fee is Non-Refundable under any circumstances.
