SAPIENCE is a law enforcement behavioral fitness-for-duty screening program developed by Psynetix Laboratories. SAPIENCE is a sophisticated software suite that assesses law enforcement personalities using a proprietary database of more than five million human behaviors classified into sixteen dimensions. SAPIENCE assesses personality by building custom combinations of evidence-based risk and protective factors on each individual assessed. The goal of SAPIENCE is to provide law enforcement agencies with street-ready candidates that are behaviorally capable of performing the stressful and often thankless job of policing in America.
Once a candidate is assessed, SAPIENCE generates a written and broad portfolio (called a “psyfolio”) of personality information, which can be used to aid in problem detection or inform further discussions with a candidate. Though SAPIENCE is an information – not a decision – tool, its insightful findings can be used as actionable intelligence in the hiring process. SAPIENCE can also be used to screen active officers and deputies prior to specialized assignment or promotion.
