The results can be used to enhance both the candidate's interview as well as the effectiveness of the background investigation.

“…Regret the times I did not trust in the PEP results. I grew more and more confident about the results the more I used it!”
- Sheriff Bruce Daniels, Taylor County Sheriff’s Dept. (WI)

"We use the Personnel Evaluation Profile as a part of the process for hiring new Police Officers. We found it to be a valuable tool to augment the background investigation. The Customer Service was exceptional. The Representative from P.E.I. spent 45 minutes on the phone interpreting results from three finalists. We would not consider hiring a candidate without having them take the PEP."
- Chief Barry Fritz, Richfield Police Dept. (MN)

“We used the Personnel Evaluation Profile for the first time last year when hiring Correction's Officers for our new Jail. Using the PEP to gain valuable insight into the applicants' work habits and personality traits prior to the interview has been very effective. The results were so successful that now our Dispatch Center and Law Enforcement Center are using the PEP and our other county departments are considering using it as a part of their hiring procedures. The feedback from PEI is fast and costs are budget friendly.”
- Rick Boland, Jail Administrator, Pine County Jail (MN)

"We have found this an inexpensive and valuable tool during the assessment center. The PEP provided insightful information into the candidates’ background and I recommend using it again during the oral interviews."
- Chief Mike Jungbluth, West Allis Police Department (WI)

"The PEP is a very helpful tool for Administration in the screening process of applicants prior to the background investigation. I also appreciate the customer service and the availability to the background investigator."
- Sheriff Gary A. Ringhofer, Steele County Sheriffs Office (MN)

“A very helpful and beneficial tool when screening applicants prior to running backgrounds.”
- Deputy Chief Don Bates, Fitchburg Police Dept. (WI)
