Announcing Police Exam Solutions Eligible Candidate List (ECL)


For over 20 years, MA police departments have come to trust in PES to provide their department-exclusive entry exams. Throughout this time, we’ve tested thousands of candidates who chose a career in law enforcement and were looking for an opportunityto become a police officer.


We are pleased to announce a new alternative to in-person exams, the PES Eligible Candidate List (ECL). The ECL will not only provide our candidates with the maximum number of opportunities at a fraction of the cost of one department-exclusive exam, but also increase the number of applicants to hiring departments.

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

Ask a question about the exam



The candidate’s process is simple:

  • To become a member of our ECL, you must enroll, and pass, our written entry exam.
  • If you receive a passing score of 70% and above, you are eligible to apply to any of the participating ECL departments.
  • Your enrollment term is valid for (6) six months. During that period, you can apply to as many agencies as you wish.
  • If you are required by a particular agency to obtain a passing PAT certificate, you may book your date with our certified PAT instructor through our portal.
  • Through your personal policeapp account, you will be able to track your progress as you advance through the process. This provides our candidates with a level of transparency, as well as a real-time update on your recruitment status.

We are excited for you to join the newest service in the menu of recruitment options available from Police Exam Solutions. Our ECL aims to become the industry standard for non-Civil Service departments looking to hire, and qualified candidates looking to get hired. 


We are pleased to provide you with the opportunity to purchase practice tests and study guides to familiarize yourself with the format and question style for your exam. To order the Study Guide for your exam, please click here: https://iosolutions.com/product/police-test-study-guide/. The purchase of the study guide is not mandatory or required. It is an optional tool which can help you prepare for your upcoming test.

It is our commitment to the police departments and candidates we serve that you receive the support necessary to easily navigate the recruitment and hiring process. Our staff is readily available to offer you hands-on assistance with any aspect of your ECL services.


Neither PES 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 $145 test fee. No additional charges will be assessed by PoliceApp during the six-month eligibility period.   The $145.00 Fee is Non-Refundable under any circumstances.
