South Central Criminal Justice Administration of Connecticut

 PoliceApp has partnered with the South Central Criminal Justice Administration to offer regionalized testing and recruitment. 

How It Works

Pay one fee + Pass all components = Valid test results for six months

Your six-month application eligibility period begins on the date of the written exam. During this 6-month period, you may apply for any position advertised by a department participating in the SCCJA program, provided you meet that department’s minimum score requirements, as well as any other department-specific prerequisites.

*CHIP Test Requirement*

You must possess valid CHIP Test Results in order to advance in the testing process!  Register for the CHIP Test now at: 

PHASE 1: Written Examination - July 2024 (TBD)

PHASE 2: Oral Board Examination by Sworn Officers - TBD

You must pass each component to advance to the next phase. Only those candidates who have successfully passed the Oral Board Examination (Phase 2) will be eligible to apply to the participating departments- provided you meet that department’s minimum score requirements, as well as any other department-specific prerequisites.

    A single application fee of $85 covers your fee for a standardized written exam, oral boards and all PoliceApp processing fees when you submit an application to a participating department (i.e., PoliceApp will waive your $25 processing fee if you apply to any department participating in this program) for a period of six months.

    Please note that only processing fees will be covered through the SCCJA Consortium. Some departments may choose to charge additional application fees, which the candidate will be responsible for.


    Neither SCCJA nor PoliceApp can control how many vacancies will be filled from this testing process. A minimum number of open positions cannot be guaranteed. Each department is responsible for its own hiring standards, prerequisites, and hiring timeline.  Departments may choose to charge an application fee in addition to the $85 test fee. No additional charges will be assessed by PoliceApp during the six-month eligibility period.   The $85.00 Fee is Non-Refundable under any circumstances.  


    All Police Departments listed under the South Central Criminal Justice Administration testing consortium are Equal Opportunity Employers.
