About This Quiz

When you apprehend suspects, which kind of law enforcement uniform are you wearing? With interrogation skills like yours, we know it won't be easy to get you a riled up into a false confession. To keep things simple, we've decided to ask you a series of yes or no questions to see which branch of law enforcement signs your paychecks.

From the Federal Bureau of Investigation to the local sheriff's department, serving in law enforcement has given you a lot of experience dealing with those who might not tell the truth. Since you know what it's like, we think you will answer our questions with the same truth and honor you approach your job with. At least, we hope you'll be as honest as possible so that we can make an accurate guess about the place of employment. 

When you read the moral quandary we present, try not to overthink your response. Your truest response will ring clearly with a yes or a no before you have time to ponder the right answer. Given that you work in a field that values integrity, we trust that you will listen to your inner voice and tell us what we need to know. Will we be able to figure out which branch of law enforcement you get to call your career?
