The Passaic County Police Academy in Wayne (NJ) utilizes the NJ Association of Chiefs of Police (NJSACOP) exam services consisting of the I/O Solutions (IOS) written exam series. The IOS exams are very critically scored entry-level exams that have proven to be very challenging as competitive instruments. Most candidates take the exams 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.
