Just something to bear in mind when you are interacting with the police. Or any government official, really.

Police Officially Refuse To Hire Applicants With High IQ Scores

It’s long been rumored amongst law enforcement critics, but did you know that police departments officially disqualify high-scoring applicants? That’s not to say that all cops are stupid… Just that if you’re too smart, the police simply won’t hire you.

Re: Police Officially Refuse To Hire Applicants With High IQ Scores
This doesn't surprise me. Not because I think that police officers are stupid -- and I HOPE that police detectives are more intelligent than most people -- but because highly intelligent people think for themselves instead of doing something just because someone higher up in command tells them to do so.

These dipshits are hired too fuck up freedom.
When they over react and kill people , the judge gets to say that it is okay to do that from now on.

That is also how they get away with these hoaxes , easy to compartmentalize tards.. And they are all too willing to play Stormtroopers through your neighborhoods and take away all your guns , draw your blood, police statist bullshit artists

Jordan, a 49-year-old college graduate, took the exam in 1996 and scored 33 points, the equivalent of an IQ of 125. But New London police interviewed only candidates who scored 20 to 27, on the theory that those who scored too high could get bored with police work and leave soon after undergoing costly training.

Most Cops Just Above Normal The average score nationally for police officers is 21 to 22, the equivalent of an IQ of 104, or just a little above average.

Re: Police Officially Refuse To Hire Applicants With High IQ Scores
Judge Dorsey, however, ruled that Mr. Jordan that there was no protection offered to intelligent people from discriminatory hiring practices by individual police departments.

Why?

Because, Dorsey explained, it was proven that police departments held all to this same standard and thus rejected all applicants who scored high.

I know how that comes across to me.

The detectives are promoted from the same pool, so no, they aren't more intelligent.

Re: Police Officially Refuse To Hire Applicants With High IQ Scores
This is an oldie but a goodie, OP.

They also excessively psyche test their applicants, so the fact that they are all a bunch of unempathetic bullies is also no accident.

It's by nefarious design, my friends.

Smart enough to take orders, too dumb to question them.

Ridiculous process, but these are the times we're living in.

That's because,contrary to tv shows and movies, it's mostly a boring and repetitive job. A person with a high IQ would become quickly bored. People with average or a little above average IQs tend to do better at such jobs.

 Quoting: Melancholy


..you haven't been around cops much then. they do not sit around eating donuts. they amase a ton of information on the citizenry--"the grids" and they view their patrol beats as their personal 'fiefdoms.'

..they have 'the dirt' on every politician/judge/lawyer and many/most prominent business owners..

..they cater to the rich--play poker at their golf clubs and masonic lodges, and vaction with influential shakers under the radar.

..they are not in 'general circulation' amongst the commoners--though they will 'pretend' they are just like the little guys..

..they walk a fine line between the elite, and the unions.

take heed.

Re: Police Officially Refuse To Hire Applicants With High IQ Scores
I was a third generation police officer, I scored very high in the IQ department and had a two year degree in an age when only 8th grade was required to do the work.
It was constantly a challenge to maintain my existence due to the stupidity of my fellow workers, who would screw up on the job and I had to be careful or I could go down with them. My father wisely always told me "it's the easiest job in the world to get fired from".
I kept a low profile, worked mostly alone and had a good record of arrests the "smart" way. Yet, twice in my career, through no fault of my own, I was whisked away from what I will call my career "comfort zone" due to some "bigger picture" scandal that happened far from my patrol area. I was transferred for just having "five or more years in one place" due to a corruption scandal in a NW area district and thrown into a hell hole late in my career. All the work, the volunteering, the efforts were just thrown away by the city and I ended up having to either retire or find a way out.
Well, I did, both in the early one and the latter one, and I retired the very first day I was eligible. Why? Because if you make it that far, 23 years, it's a miracle if you still have a clean record. (as I did). I was not going to take any more risk that some idiot would get me in trouble for their actions. I survived, went back to school to get my B.A,M.A. and I still work in a completely unrelated profession of my own.
Stay away from any service job if you are smart. It is very hard to avoid being caught up in some impropriety due to the mistakes of others.
