  • New Jersey jobs

    I currently have 11 years on with a pd in PA. We are located along the Delaware River across from Gloucester County, NJ. I live in Gloucester County and would like to find a job somewhere in the county. Is this possible or is it a long shot?

    Any advice.

    IT's a long shot! Unless it's a "chief's test" town. Otherwise you will have to take the civil service test that is given every 2 years. Next one will be given mid-2010 with the announcement this December (2009). And remember there is a maximum hiring age of 35.

      I work in Gloucester Co, but we are civil service. There a a lot of police departments in the county and only (3) are civil service, so your chances are better. One of the guys that I work with had (5) year on in Lower Marion, and came over, but had to go through the full academy, cause my department WILL NOT apply for a waiver. With all the alternate route canidates out there, you might have a tough time. Best bet is to take the civil service test and live in one of the CS towns or hope for the Sheriffs Department.
      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.

        How can you work in PA and live in NJ. I thought most departments (minus bridge and septa) require a PA license?

          Ummm, yeah....Wrong name was in the paper though. PA does not require residency in the state.

            I know I recognized the pic..

            But in order to have a PA license you must live in PA. I know most departments in the Philly area require a PA license.

                Are these departments civil service and require an act 120 in Delco? I live here and am just wondering.
