About This Quiz

There are a lot of personality traits that come in handy when you're thinking about a career in law enforcement. Some of the first that come to mind are intelligence, bravery, being quick on your feet, being able to adapt to any situation, and being able to see through liars and having the ability to lie just a little bit yourself. We are sure that you have a personality that would be successful in one branch of law enforcement, but which agency would be right for you?

Would you want to be part of the secret world of the CIA or the impressive world of the FBI? Would you be good going at undercover for the DEA, or protecting the president with the Secret Service? Or maybe you'd be good at tracking down prisoners while working for the United States Marshalls Service? Or perhaps you'd be good at protecting the border while working for U.S Customs and Border Protection?

We've devised some questions, and if you answer them correctly, we should be able to tell you which law enforcement agencies go best with your personality. Take this quiz and find out which one it is! Sorry, we can't give you a badge and a gun on completion.
