[IPAC-List] Need a Test for entry-level police officer

I am looking for a written test to be used for screening police applicants.
Specifically, I am looking for a personality-based instrument - not basic skills or other cognitive measures.
(Reason being that Minnesota requires a 2-year degree to apply).

I am looking for a substitute for an instrument that I used for years at PDI/Korn Ferry that measured the following attributes

Achievement Motivation:	
Attention to Detail:		
Cooperativeness/ Team Play:	
Emotional Control:		
Fate Control:			
Interpersonal Perceptiveness:	
Practical Intelligence:		
Realistic Interests:		

Now that I have left PDI/KF, gaining access to the test and getting it scored is difficult.
If anyone knows of a test/vendor who can approximate these measurements, please let me know ASAP.	

Thanks in advance,
