Applicants fail to pass written test for East Ridge Police Department

Posted: Updated:
EAST RIDGE, TN (WRCB) -

The East Ridge Police Department has three job openings for officers.  But is having a hard time finding qualified applicants, due to a high rate of failure on a written test.

Ninety-people applied to become East Ridge police officers in 2014, but only 15 managed to pass the department's initial written test.

The test is designed to measure skills such as reading comprehension, following directions and logic.
