    New Rochelle is having an exam on Nov. 15th as well however, you need to be a Westchester County resident at time of application.

    You forgot to mention the 900 some-odd towns in New York.

    Read carefully

    Always read civil service examination notices CAREFULLY. Some of them will state that only legal residents of that particular political subdivision CAN take the examination.

    Because exam schedules has been centralized by the NYS Dept. of Civil Service. It makes it a whole lot easier for the state to process and grade test papers in one job title from municipalities across the state in one batch then it is to spread it around throughout the year.

    It's not a difficult thing to find out about upcoming police and county correction civil service entry level exams. Generally speaking, CS exams outside of NYC are conducted once every four years unless the list of eligibles is exhausted sooner. Cities with NYS have their own civil service commission. County,Town and village political subdivisions depend on the County Dept. of Civil Service/ Personnel/ Human Resources, where they're located, to schedule and conduct exams. All written examinations are prepared and graded by the NYS Dept. of Civil Service in Albany.

    Police Officer exams are conducted in November, and the filing period is generally from mid-August to mid-September. County Correction Officer exams are held in April with the filing period from mid-January to mid February. Most NY Counties have websites with each county department having their own subsection of the website. Most Counties and cities will list their upcoming civil service exams on their website.

    You may file with multiple jurisdictions and take the exam at one central location convenient to you.You just have to let the various civil service department you cross filed with where you're taking the exam. It's just going to cost you a lot in filling fees as the going rate (filing fee) is $40 per jurisdiction.


    Remember, a municipality has the right to use a "residence preference list" in making appointments and many of them do.

    Residence preference

    Keep in mind that a municipality (county,city,town or villiage) has the right to use a residence preference list which groups legal residents of that particular civil service listing of eligible ahead of those non-residents on the list of the municipality filling vacancies. Yonkers uses residence preference.
