The orientation meetings will be conducted at the Bergen County Law and Public Safety Institute at 281 Campgaw Road, Mahwah, New Jersey. Interested candidates are required to attend one of the two orientation sessions in order to receive an application and be part of the competitive process.

Why the Alternate Route Program?
The CCS Test Prep® Program is a very focused training course during which Chief David A. Paprota, Ed.D. (Ret.) works with students using an online platform leading right up to the actual exam.
The actual exam will be administered by the NJSACOP at the police academy on Monday evening, March 9, 2022.
The Bergen County Police Academy in Mahwah (NJ) utilizes the NJ Association of Chiefs of Police (NJSACOP) exam services to administer an IOS exam. This is a very critically scored entry-level exam that has been proven to be very challenging as a competitive instrument. Most candidates take the exam over and over without ever achieving a sufficiently adequate score to be considered in any of the selection processes for which the exam series is utilized.
|The CCS Test Prep® Program|
Candidates who strive to achieve excellence, should always properly prepare before sitting for a competitive examination. The CCS Test Prep® program is the most effective preparation program available.
