STATE OF NEW JERSEY
DATED: JUNE 3, 2021
The Senate State Government, Wagering, Tourism and Historic Preservation Committee reports favorably Senate Bill No. 3672.
Under current law, a person must pass the civil service examination prior to becoming eligible for employment as an entry-level county correctional police officer.
Under this bill, the Civil Service Commission will exempt from the examination any person for an entry-level county correctional police officer position who has successfully completed a full Basic Course for Police Officers training course at a school approved and authorized by the New Jersey Police Training commission.
Also, the bill permits a county correctional facility to hire a person exempt from the requirement to take an examination for an entry-level position upon adoption of a resolution by the governing body authorizing such hiring by the correctional facility and the adoption of a conflict of interest and nepotism policy.
