What is the NJ LEE? (Watch this Video)

UPDATE to the Video Info:

As of June of 2022, the NJ LEE is now the shortened version of the LEAB as described in the above video. The “Talogy” company (formerly PSI and EB Jacobs) now controls the LEAB and has shortened it to a 2.5 hours exam (from 3 hrs and 40 minutes) by reducing the number of questions in each of the three parts of the exam. The 2022 NJ LEE will have 30 Written Abilities questions in Part 1; 135 Trait Assessment statements in Part 2 (WSQ); and 75 Bio-data questions in Part 3 (LES) for a total of 240 questions rather than the longer 329 question exam previously used.  

New Jersey Civil Service LEE

While the NJ Civil Service Commission (NJCSC) lists the NJ LEE administration as a two-year cycle, since 2010, the exam has been consistently administered every three years. The 2022 NJ LEE application period opened on January 3, 2022, with an application closing date of February 28, 2022. CCS Test Prep® offers a highly effective online prep program to meet everyone’s busy schedule. The CCS Test Prep® Online Learning Platform has proven to be a far more effective than in-class instruction. Students have the ability to study and practice with 24/7 access up to the day of the test with no risk of class dates having to be cancelled, etc.

During the 2022 NJ LEE cycle, candidates who registered for the CCS Test Prep® program were provided every advantage possible. That drive for exceptional performance was the focus. CCS Test Prep® utilizes the most effective training methods and timelines to give every student the optimal training experience for the greatest outcomes.

With regard to the administration of the actual written exam, in 2022, the New Jersey Civil Service Commission (NJCSC) conducted the actual test administration on six separate test dates using both Saturdays as well as Thursday evenings in June and July. Once the application period was completed in 2022, six weeks later, the NJCSC sent applicants a link to SignUpGeniusfor candidates to select their test date, location, and time.

The Civil Service Application Period

The New Jersey Civil Service Commission (NJCSC) opened the 2022 NJ LEE application period on January 3, 2022 and closed applications on February 28, 2022. Candidates applied for the NJ LEE Exam (3-year list) via the NJCSC online application portal. The 2022 process differed from past cycles as candidates were required to submit separate applications for each title and jurisdiction for which he or she wishes to be eligible. Candidates must always remember that most jurisdictions give a preference to residents.  

In 2019, the NJCSC implemented a new system for the scheduling of candidates for the exam. Well after the application closing date, those who applied with the NJCSC for the actual exam had the opportunity to select a test date, time, and location from a long list of options provided through the SignUpGenius online portal. This means that candidates will likely be able to choose a test date throughout the testing cycle that best matches up with their schedule.

In 2019, the actual testing dates were scheduled for Saturdays at community college sites around the state for the seven-week period. The NJCSC used county college facilities in Bergen County, Passaic County, Hudson County, Essex County, Union County, Middlesex County, Ocean County, Mercer County, Camden County, and Atlantic County. Candidates had the ability to choose any of the locations and were not limited to their home county. 

When to Complete the Online Prep Course?

Every candidate is different, but history has proven that the most consistently high (99+) scores come from those who prepare diligently during the three weeks of the actual exam. Individual student’s 24/7 online access will be set for them to study at their convenience up to the student’s actual test date. The CCS Test Prep® Online Program has an established timeline of phasing in learning components during the weeks immediately leading up to the day of the student’s exam. The timeline is based on analyzing and identifying the most successful methods of training for students to achieve the highest outcomes. Students who prepare during the month (weeks and days) leading directly up to the actual exam date consistently score higher than students who attend courses too far before the exam administration. The CCS Test Prep® Online Program utilizes the ideal timelines for the greatest student success.


The NJ LEE is a very important exam, as it includes varied law enforcement titles and has only been administered once every three years since 2010. The titles covered by the exam include: Municipal Police Officer, Campus Police Officer Recruit, County Police Officer, Park Police Officer, Police Officer Recruit Human Services, Police Officer Palisades Interstate Park, Sheriff’s Officer, State Park Police Officer, County Correctional Police Officer, State Correctional Police Officer (NJDOC), State Correctional Police Officer Juvenile Justice, Parole Officer Recruit Juvenile Justice Commission and Parole Officer Recruit. Well over 30,000 candidates sit for the LEE. Candidates must achieve exceptional test scores in order to be among the top candidates eligible to be considered for openings during the 3-year lists. Proper preparation is critical when taking this very competitive exam!

The State of New Jersey chose the PSI testing company as the vendor to write and score the NJ LEE exam. The specific exam utilized is the Law Enforcement Aptitude Battery (LEAB™). The LEAB™ is a multi-factor psychometric test that has proven to be the most comprehensive, valid, and reliable entry-level law enforcement exam available nationally. This is the exact type of exam which served as the basis of much of Chief Paprota’s doctoral research.

Preparing Candidates throughout the Country for this Specific Exam

Chief Paprota has also trained candidates all around the country for the Law Enforcement Aptitude Battery (LEAB™) utilizing the CCS Test Prep® Online Learning Platform for this specific and expanded exam. The testing jurisdictions included but were not limited to the following: New York State Police; Norfolk, Virginia; Pennsylvania State Police; Delaware State Police; Wilmington (DE) Police Department, Allentown (PA) Police Department, Oklahoma City (OK) Police Department, and the Massachusetts State Police and state-wide testing pool. In each instance, CCS Test Prep® students absolutely dominated by achieving top 1% scores with all candidates moving on to the first round of the respective hiring processes. There is no doubt that CCS Test Prep® students’ results continue to dominate in the State of New Jersey for the LEE cycle. Chief Paprota relentlessly researches entry-level law enforcement testing around the country to ensure his students have the latest and most accurate information at all times.
