UPDATE (June 4, 2018) – The current New Jersey entry-level police officer written-testing opportunities with application periods open at this time include three municipal police departments with more expected to announce in the days and weeks to come. The Morris County Alternate Route Program will open the application period on June 25th, 2018, while the three police departments: Old Bridge Township (Middlesex County); Bridgewater Township Police Department (Somerset County); and the Toms River Police Department (Ocean County) all have open application periods at this time.
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), while occasionally, a department will choose to use a different test vendor.
Separate and distinct from the non-civil service “Chief’s Test” opportunities, the New Jersey Civil Service Commission (NJCSC) 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.
