Where can I find police departments that are hiring? How do I find a department that needs people?
I am a recent college graduate, I live in Northern New Jersey, and I have not taken the civil service test yet. How do I find a police department that is hiring, I want to apply for a job. I have a BA in sociology and I served an internship with the New Jersey State Police. I am not interested in working for the NYPD which many people have already suggested to me, but thank you. I appreciate everyone that contributes but I should also note that I would like to remain close to my family, such as NJ, NY, PA. Thanks
