On Show 19, August 15th 2014, We mentioned and had quite a discussion on how some Police Agencies will not hire applicants whose mental capabilities, their IQ, is too high. This seemed a bit dubious at the time as being completely counter intuitive, given they were trying to claim it was to maintain job satisfaction levels and other such things. Well, today we have a first hand account of this policy in action. Fred, tell us what you went through.
