Do You Have A High IQ Score And Want To Be A Cop?... Forget It!

It's long been rumored amongst law enforcement critics, but did you know that police departments officially disqualify high-scoring applicants? That's not to say that all cops are stupid… If you're too smart, the police simply won't hire you.

The policy became solidified as a concrete federal ruling almost a decade and a half ago with little fanfare from the mainstream media. Back in 1999, a Federal judge dismissed a lawsuit by a police applicant who was barred from the New London, Connecticut police force.

The reason for the disqualification was literally because he had scored "too high" on an intelligence test. The department made it clear, they didn't want the bottom of the barrel in terms of intelligence, but they didn't want anyone "too smart" either.

The ruling made public in September of the same year, with the ruling  judge Peter C. Dorsey of the United States District Court in New Haven confirming that it was in fact the case that the plaintiff, Robert Jordan, 48, who has a bachelor's degree in literature, was denied an opportunity to even interview for a job with the New London Police Department, solely because of his high test scores.

Judge Dorsey, however, ruled that Mr. Jordan that there was no protection offered to intelligent people from discriminatory hiring practices by individual police departments.

Why? Because, Dorsey explained, it was proven that police departments held all to this same standard and thus rejected all applicants who scored high.

So next time you cross paths with a cop and wonder how someone so stupid could get hired by their department, you now know that their stupidity might be the very thing that qualified them for the job.



IQ Levels Chart...

One often encounters the question: "What is the IQ value, obtained after passing an IQ test?". Indeed, many have an IQ test and get some results, but do not know what the obtained IQ level gives to them. Therefore, we have decided to inform you about IQ levels and each level's features:

Required Max IQ For New Police Officers Drastically Lowered!

(McCormick, SC) - Law enforcement officials in McCormick County, South Carolina have drastically lowered the maximum IQ cap-off for all newly hired police officers. What that means for hopeful flat shoes is a limit on how intelligent they can be before receiving a gun and badge.

City officials cite the change in policy as a way to contend with new challenges in today's ultra-violent society. Sheriff of McCormick County, Bobo Greere gave reporters the following statement at a press conference Wednesday:

"We need officers who aren't going to second guess the orders given to them. Multiple Harvard studies have shown that individuals with higher levels of intelligence are more prone to corruption and violence towards innocent civilians.

It is simply a risk we cannot afford to bring amongst our ranks. The less our officers question the experienced commands of their superiors, the safer we are all going to be as a community."

Law makers dropped the maximum IQ requirements a whole 30 points from an average score of 90 to 60, an IQ that is only marginally higher than that of a person with down-syndrome.

The Less Our Officers Question The Experienced Orders Of Their Superiors, The Safer We Are All Going To Be As A Community

McCormick County officials tell us that they have no intention of firing any previously hired officers whose IQ's currently exceed the minimum. They will, however, be reassigned duties within' the force.

This controversial move by the McCormick police force mirrors an instance in New London, Connecticut where their own police force agreed upon a similar policy.

"Jordan, a 49-year-old college graduate, took the exam in 1996 and scored 33 points, the equivalent of an IQ of 125. But New London police interviewed only candidates who scored 20 to 27, on the theory that those who scored too high could get bored with police work and leave soon after undergoing costly training."

While the courts didn't necessarily feel it was in the police force's best interest,  New London Police Department's defense council were able to argue a rational explanation for the policy, pointing to a decline in job turn over from having too highly qualified an officer on the force.

Whatever the case may be, McCormick's police force is assured to get a whole lot stupider in the coming months. They've put out a cattle call for new officers through multiple recruitment channels and are expected to sign on 200 new employees by the end of next year.
