Complete Health & Injury Prevention, Inc. (C.H.I.P.) was founded in 1996 by
Sean, a Certified Athletic Trainer and Certified Cooper Law Enforcement Physical Fitness Specialist, was exposed to the hiring process municipalities undertake when seeking qualified police
candidates while he was employed at the CT Police Officer
Standards and Training Council. C.H.I.P. was awarded a contract by the Capitol Region Council of Governments (CRCOG) to provide physical ability assessments for their public safety council.
The C.H.I.P. Card was the result of the CRCOG contract. The goals of the C.H.I.P. Card were to:
Reduce the burden on the police candidates by allowing them
to take one Physical Ability Assessment that would be
accepted by multiple police agencies.
Reduce the time and cost for the police
departments by allowing one centralized group to provide the
Physical Ability Assessment.
Police departments throughout the state are realizing the convenience of working with a central testing service that not only caters to their unique assessment needs, but helps to expand their potential pool of applicants at no additional cost to the department.
C.H.I.P. introduced Police Certification.com in 2001 which
has since transitioned to PoliceApp.com as a central clearinghouse of resources for both recruits and municipalities.
Police candidates can access a single web site to keep track of the hiring status of
multiple police agencies throughout Connecticut.
Police agencies can utilize the site as a vehicle for communicating with potential police applicants in a cost-effective manner.
