Contract in currently in negotiation. There are Detective Trainees, 1 and 2. Top out for a 1 is 79/80 top out for a 2 is 91/93. There is no path from a one to a two. Morale is eh, but that would largely based on the next contract. Beyond Detective there are SGTs, LTs, Deputy Chiefs. Office throughout the state and units vary: Gangs, Medicaid, Insurance Fraud, Cyber, Casino, Human Trafficking, CODIS, Financial, Labor, Bias and probably a couple others.

If you're already a police officer you will attend a few waiver courses at the academy. If aren't a waiver (they won't waive a Class 2) then you'll need to attend the full academy (20 weeks).

If you aren't currently a police officer, need a Bachelor's degree and it can be in anything. If you are currently a police officer no degree required.

Does anyone know if their offices are strictly in Trenton?

I am non PTC and interested in applying, however, I live in Northern New Jersey. Any information on location and chances of hiring non PTC would be appreciated!

There is also at least a Whippany office in Morris County. Can’t recall where the others are

Offices throughout the State. People are assigned to other agencies so there is a chance that you wind up in an office that isn't DCJ. That said, statewide agency so your unit might not necessarily align with where you live. Some effort might be made to get you close to home, but end of the day sometimes it is where it is.

As for non-ptc, they hire from all types of backgrounds so you have a reasonable chance all things considered.
