NTN Tests - FrontLine Law Enforcement Testing There are three components to the FrontLine Testing System: a video-based human relations test, a reading ability test and a report writing test. Testing takes approximately 2 hours. FrontLine Video-Based Human Relations Test FrontLine focuses on using good judgment in enforcement, public relations and teamwork. Candidates do not have to have experience in order to do well. Candidates watch a video segment and then choose the BEST course of action in a multiple-choice format. This test is presented on computer or video and the items play without stopping. Candidates have 10 seconds to answer each question. All information that may be needed to answer a question is provided in the test. Frontline is not designed to be a test of policy or technical components and candidates are asked to only know what is stated during the video. FrontLine Reading Test FrontLine Reading Test is designed specifically for law enforcement officers, a job requiring on-going study of difficult and technical materials. This test is based on typical training materials. Certain words are left blank. Candidates are required to choose a word that best fits in the blank. They are given 15 minutes to complete this test. FrontLine Incident Observation and Report Writing Test Report writing is an important part of a law enforcement officer's job. For this test candidates view a brief incident presented on video. They are given blank pieces of paper for notes and a draft, then asked to write a report on the answer sheet in the space provided. They are shown an example scenario and a sample of an excellent written report. After viewing the video twice, they are given 10 minutes to complete the report.
