LEE UPDATE – After a long period of assessing potential vendors to write the upcoming 2016 New Jersey Law Enforcement Examination (LEE), the State of New Jersey has again awarded the contract to EB Jacobs, LLC, of State College, Pennsylvania. This means that the New Jersey Civil Service Commission (NJCSC) will continue utilizing the Law Enforcement Aptitude Battery (LEAB) which has become so popular nationally for law enforcement entry-level testing. This three-factor psychometric assessment has proven to be the most comprehensive, valid, and reliable law enforcement examination currently available. The NJCSC has used the EB Jacobs LEAB for the previous two administration cycles (2010 & 2013) of the LEE. Likewise, it is the same examination utilized for the separate administrations of the New Jersey State Correction Officer Recruit Examination (2013 & 2015). The State of New Jersey does require that the vendor write three separate and new versions of the exam for administration each testing cycle.
The state has indicated that they anticipate the next announcement for the 2016 Law Enforcement Examination (LEE) being Spring/Summer of 2016, which means they anticipate possibly administering the actual exam during the summer or fall months thereafter. It should be noted that the New Jersey Civil Service Commission rarely ever follows the timelines they release to the public, so aspiring candidates should be prepared for the LEE application announcement coming out at some point between the end of this year and the Summer of 2016 with the administration being two to three months after the close of applications. The staff at CCS Test Prep will keep those prospective candidates updated who subscribe for the latest testing updates at CCS Test Prep Testing News.
