Monmouth County Police Chiefs Association

PoliceApp has partnered with the Monmouth County Police Chiefs Association (MCPCA) to offer regionalized testing and recruitment.  A Police Officers Entry Level Examination for all non-civil service municipalities located within Monmouth County will be conducted each year in order find qualified applicants to fill open positions for Police Officers in our member townships. The Monmouth County Chiefs of Police administers a Police Officer Exam each year. The exam is two parts; a written test and a physical test.

How It Works

Results will be accepted by 26 agencies!

Your one-year application eligibility period begins on the day you take the exam.  During this 12-month period, you may apply for any position advertised by a department participating in the MCPCA program, provided you meet that department’s minimum score requirements, as well as any other department-specific prerequisites.

Only those applicants who pass the written examination will continue on to the Physical Assessment portion of the exam.  The Physical Assessment will be held after the wrritten exam at a later date and time.
