Re: Essex County police academy

From what I've known, the county academies are run by the county agencies. Mine was run by the sheriffs dept and prosecutors office. With APs teaching the a bulk of the legal courses. We had three main instructors that were there everyday, two were sheriffs one was from the prosecutors office.

Re: Hiring process- in order for civil service

If your selected to continue, they give u dates and times for psych tests and medical physicals.
