Passing the Sheriff’s Deputy Exam is a key component to becoming a police officer. It doesn’t matter which department you want to work in, whether you want to work for the county or the state, if you don’t pass, you don’t play.
There are ways to outperform the competition to become a Sheriff’s deputy, and that competition is fierce. By studying. It seems so simple, yet so many candidates don’t do it. There are ways to prepare yourself for the exam, so that you can put yourself ahead of the rest.
The best way is to get a police exam study guide that has practice exams in it. Study this guide and take the practice exams. Both of these things will help you in your preparation for the test. Here is an example of a question you might see on the Sheriff’s Deputy exam, answer this question and use good judgment and see if you come up with the same answer that I give below.
Deputy Sheriff Practice Test Question:
You are dispatched to a domestic disturbance between a husband and wife. Upon arrival, there are already two deputies on the scene fighting with the husband. When you run over to assist, the wife charges you with a broken bottle in her hand. You tell her to drop the bottle, but she refuses and continues to advance in a threatening manner.
Because the wife refuses to comply with your verbal command, what is your next course of action to stop her advancing and put the bottle down?
The correct answer is what you would logically do. If you go for deadly force, that is probably not a wise move, as even though she has threatened you, she has not attacked you. The next logical solution is to move up to the next level of force, and retrieve the taser gun, and/or the hand held baton.
