Individuals interested in taking the Law Enforcement Alert Test have an opportunity at the University of Maine at Fort Kent on Tuesday, March 31 at 6 p.m. in room 200 at Cyr Hall. The test is required prior to attending programs at the Maine Criminal Justice Academy.
The examination consists of two main sections. The first part of the exam contains 60 questions that pertain to reading comprehension. The second part of the exam contains 100 questions dealing with writing skills. Both sections measure important basic abilities. A two- hour time limit has been set.
“This fits in with our expansion of criminal justice and public safety outreach efforts at UMFK,” said Dr. Tony Enerva, assistant professor of public safety administration & criminal justice.
The cost of the Alert Test is $40.00 and a picture ID must be presented at the time of the examination. Registration deadline is Friday, March 27.
“We have been fortunate in creating a good working relationship with the Academy and local law enforcement agencies. This has served our program and our students well,” added Don Eno, coordinator of academic outreach and distance education.
To register or for more information, contact Eno in UMFK’s academic outreach office at (207) 834-7835 or toll free at 1-888-TRY-UMFK.
