Testing Update (5/21/2018): The national test-writing company, Industrial-Organization Solution (also known as I/O Solutions or IOS), now has a new entry-level law enforcement examination. This examination differs significantly from any other examination on the market and is an example of the evolution of non-cognitive and cognitive law enforcement testing.
This new exam is known as the Next Generation Law Enforcement Aptitude Test (NGLE) and currently consists of 136 questions and is 3 hours and 15 minutes in length. The foundation and primary component of the test consists of 96 Situation Judgement (multiple-choice) questions. That section is followed by Reading Comprehension passages with 20 associated questions, then a 20 question English-Grammar section.
If any candidate learns that the jurisdiction for which they are testing is using the IOS Next Generation Law Enforcement Aptitude Test (NGLE), it is important to your success to contact Dr. Paprota of CCS Test Prep at [email protected]
This video was created by Dr. David A. Paprota, Ed.D. (Chief of Police, Ret.) to inform candidates about the new exam.
The New York State Police (NYSP) entry-level examination results have been made available to candidates from the October of 2017 testing cycle. Candidates who participated in the most recent exam cycle can go to: http://www.nytrooper.com/exam_scores and obtain their results.
Congratulations to the CCS Test Prep® students who completed the exam prep program and demonstrated that consistent and diligent work pays off with consistent scores of 99+ on the written exam. I was fortunate to have an exceptional group of future NYSP Troopers who, as expected, achieved at the highest level on the exam.
The NYSP utilized the Law Enforcement Aptitude Battery (LEAB-II) as produced by the EB Jacobs (PSI) company for the most recent testing cycle which is a 329 question, multi-factor, psychometric exam that is administered over a 3 hour and 40 minute test period. This is the most comprehensive and extensive entry-level law enforcement examination in use around the country today.
The New Jersey Civil Service Commission is also using this particular examination for the 2019 Law Enforcement Examination (LEE). CCS Test Prep® will be scheduling dozens of seminars throughout the State of New Jersey in 2019 specifically for candidates preparing for the next LEE exam. Anyone interested in being notified of the next NYSP exam or the next New Jersey Law Enforcement Exam (LEE) should complete an Inquiry/Contact Form at www.ccstest.com.
Congratulations again to my New York State Police candidates on their well-deserved and truly exceptional scores!

UPDATE (April 30, 2018) – The current New Jersey entry-level police officer testing opportunities with application periods open at this time include two Alternate Route Program (police academy) exams as well as several municipal police departments. Most of the testing opportunities will involve the use of either the IOS NCJOSI v1 (90 min) exam or the IOS NCJOSI v2 (2.5 hour) exam as administered by the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police (NJSACOP).
The municipal police departments currently include the Emerson Police Department in Bergen County and the Washington Township Police Department in Morris County. The Toms River Police Department in Ocean County is expected to open their application period on Tuesday, May 1, 2018, and may be using a new exam type. The current Alternate Route Programs with open application periods include the Essex County Police Academy and the Cape May County Police Academy. The Morris County Police Academy will open their Alternate Route Program application period on June 24th, 2018.
The New Jersey Civil Service Commission (NJCSC) recently posted a notice that the next Law Enforcement Exam (LEE) will not be formally announced and administered until 2019. The LEE involves the use of the Law Enforcement Aptitude Battery (LEAB) by EB Jacobs – PSI. Candidates motivated to prepare for the 2019 LEE are encouraged to apply to take the Pennsylvania State Police (PSP) Cadet (Trooper) exam. Currently, the PSP exam is the only version of the LEAB being administered in the New Jersey area. The PSP process differs from the New Jersey LEE in that the PSP process involves a computer-based written version of the LEAB followed within weeks by a scored (structured) interview for those candidates who score high enough on the written exam. The PSP process serves as excellent practice for aspiring New Jersey LEE candidates.
CCS Test Prep® has programs available for all of the upcoming exams. Candidates are also encouraged to regularly monitor the CCS Test Prep® “Upcoming Tests” page to quickly see which agencies or academies are testing in New Jersey and beyond. The page is updated daily.

ANNOUNCEMENT: The Providence Police Department (Rhode Island) will complete three weeks of physical assessment of candidates by April 22, 2018, and move on to the written examination on Saturday, May 19, 2018. Those candidates who performed well on the physical and are fortunate enough to progress to the written exam can prepare for the written examination with CCS Test Prep®.
The Providence Police Department has chosen to once again use the IOS NCJOSI v2 exam which has proven to be an extremely challenging exam with 40% to 60% of candidates commonly failing the exam while most others who pass achieve very low scores. It is not good enough to “pass” the exam. Candidates need to achieve excellence and can do so with proper exam preparation and hard work.
The tuition for the training program is set at $395. Interested candidates can register or obtain more information from Chief David A. Paprota, Ed.D. (Ret.) at: http://www.ccstest.com/providence-rhode-island-police-officer-entry-level-exam-preparation/ .
