Empco Testing

We have partnered with EMPCO Incorporated to offer testing for employment as a corrections officer, deputy sheriff, or a law enforcement officer. Many departments (but not all) throughout the state of Michigan have partnered with EMPCO to testing for positions they have available, or to create eligibility lists for future job postings. In general, you have an hour and a half for the Corrections test, and two and a half hours to complete the Deputy Sheriff and Law Enforcement tests. The cost of each test is $75, and can be taken no more than twice in one year. If you test more than once, your most recent score will be posted as your score, even if it is lower than your first score. Test scores will be valid for one year from the test date. More information on the testing, along with a list of participating departments, can be found on the EMPCO website at www.empco.net.

Most test dates are scheduled on an as-needed basis. If you need to complete a test and a testing date is not listed below, please contact our office at 269-965-3931 to schedule one.
