  • Difference in Titles

    Hi guys, been a while since I posted but can anyone tell me the difference/responsibilities of an Auxiliary Police Officer vs. a Special Class I/II police officer? Does the Spec. Ofcr have the same rights as a fully sworn LEO? It was something that I was wondering about earlier.

    Class I has limited police authority (its further complicated as you can be a Class Ia or ClassIb) and is generally used for disorderly persons offenses, parking enforcement and traffic enforcement. Class II has the same authority as a full time officer while on duty only. Auxillary police are under the office of emergency management and do not get any PTC training.

      Aux are non existent. There is no A and B designation. Class 1 is unarmed and basically just writes tickets. They can take reports and make non indictable arrests (DP-PDP.) Class 2 is basically the same as a full time officer, but they aren't supposed to leave their jurisdiction, can't take their firearm home and have zero powers off duty.
      Being a good street cop is like coming to work in a wet suit and peeing in your pants. It's a nice warm feeling, but you're the only one who knows anything has happened.

        Thank you very much guys! I have a follow up question if you don't mind answering it, how does an Auxiliary or Special PO become a fully sworn Officer? Is there a short cut, do they have to follow the same regulations as a recruit/rookie officer?

          I think I saw you posting questions on NJLawman.com. Go back there and search the Special Officer's Corner forum. There is a ton of info on the subject and how to become a Class 1 or 2 and go full time. The short answer is Class two's can be waived to full time with some additional training.

            I actually don't have a forum account with NJLawman, but I believe I've seen the person you're thinking about, I'll check that forum out though, thanks for the help & short answer!

              When did the Class Ia. and Class 1b. titles get removed. I know someone who was a Class Ib. but had the authority to conduct traffic enforcement. Worked for Cape May City and did a 3 week academy in Ocean City. I know a few Middlesex towns who have Aux, but they're not under the PD, OEM.

                Not since at least 1998 when I got into the game.
