Civil Service Commission Issues 2022 Law Enforcement Examination Announcement
TRENTON – The New Jersey Civil Service Commission (CSC) issued examination announcements for Entry Level Law Enforcement Examination (LEE) titles on Monday, January 3, 2022. The LEE assesses applicant readiness for entry into law enforcement titles including common knowledge, skills, abilities, and other characteristics.
The following LEE titles were announced:

Previously, applicants filed for one examination announcement, selected the jurisdictions and titles in which they had an interest in appointment, and then successful applicants would be placed in a “pool” for selection based on their score on the examination and veteran’s preference. The new process for the January 2022 LEE announcements will provide municipalities, counties and State departments with announcements specific to their jurisdiction and title(s) used. Applicants must file a separate application to indicate their interest in the examination for a particular jurisdiction and title.
Bilingual in Spanish and English and Bilingual in Korean and English positions will be available, by symbol, for some of the titles listed above. To apply for a bilingual position, a candidate must complete an application for the particular bilingual announcement for the title. Candidates for Bilingual positions will be tested at the time of certification for proficiency in either Spanish or Korean.
“The LEE applicant population is the largest examination administered by CSC. When it was last administered in 2019, approximately 28,000 applicants applied for the examination and approximately 22,000 were administered the examination,” said Civil Service Commission Chair/Chief Executive Officer, Deirdré Webster Cobb Esq. “After significant planning to establish the most safe and responsible way to resume testing for this large number of applicants during the COVID-19 pandemic, my team and I are pleased to announce the 2022 LEE.”
The examination announcements and applications will be available on the New Jersey Civil Service Commission website https://nj.gov/csc from January 3, 2022 through February 28, 2022 at 4:00 pm.
