2024 NJ LEE Statewide Civil Service Exam Application Period NOW OPEN! – CCS Test Prep®

The NJ LEE Application Period

The New Jersey Civil Service Commission (NJCSC) posted the formal announcement and opened the online application portal for the 2024 NJ LEE on March 1, 2024. The NJCSC formal application period close (for most departments) on April 1, 2024. NOTE: Paterson PD (4/22/24) and Bordentown Township PD (4/30/24) have later application closing dates.

The NJCSC has implemented annual NJ LEE testing. The testing is expected to be facilitated in July of 2024 for those who applied before the closing date.

Only those departments/jurisdictions that “opted in” for this NJ LEE cycle are included in the announcement. Any department/jurisdiction that did not opt in will simply extend the existing list from the agency’s previous NJ LEE cycle. Any candidate who tested in 2022 or 2023 for a department/jurisdiction that has an announcement as part of this year’s NJ LEE cycle will need to test again this year to be a part of that department’s list once the 2024 results come out.

The NJCSC CLOSING DATE for most NJ LEE applications was set as April 1, 2024.

IMPORTANT: In a very confusing way, the NJCSC has modified the normal application process for the NJ LEE and now requires that interested candidates submit individual applications online for each title and jurisdiction for which he or she would like to be eligible. It is important to note that most jurisdictions have residency preferences, so residents are placed ahead of non-residents on the formal list. Candidates should look at which jurisdictional area is listed as (1) within the column entitled “open to residents of” on the NJCSC job posting portal at: https://info.csc.state.nj.us/. The candidate should compare his or her personal residency location and make sure it matches up with the jurisdictional area listed as (1) in the portal. Hiring agencies will draw from the jurisdictional area listed as (1) as their primary list. Only a few departments in the state make it to the jurisdictional area listed as (2) during the life of the list. Of course, everyone applying is a NJ resident, so everyone is residency eligible for the NJ State titles that are listed. Most of the municipal police agencies have a “residency preference” and pull from their local residents first.

This process is very important, as the lists generated from the NJ LEE can be extended up to 4 years.

NOTE: The NJ LEE is also used for Parole Officer Recruit as well as the NJDOC titles.

I look forward to having the opportunity to help you achieve an exceptional score on the 2023 NJ LEE!

Chief David A. Paprota, Ed.D. (Ret.)
