How It Works

Pay one fee + Pass all components = Valid test results for multiple departments


The South Central Criminal Justice Administration of Connecticut (SCCJA) conducts entry level testing for its member departments. 

Phase 1: Physical Performance Test 

If you have a CHIP card that will be valid on the date of the SCCJA Physical performance test, you will not be required to take the SCCJA Physical and will advance to Phase 2: Written Exam. If you have a CHIP Card and your results are viewable on your account, then SCCJA will receive your results automatically when you register for the SCCJA testing process. Remember these results must be valid on the "Date of the Upcoming Exam" of the SCCJA physical listed below.  Please do not contact SCCJA to notify them that you have a CHIP card; they will already know upon registration.

Phase 2: Written Examination 

Phase 3: Oral Board Examination by Sworn Officers 

You must pass each component to advance to the next phase. Only those candidates who have successfully passed the Oral Board Examination (Phase 3) will be eligible to apply to the departments hiring for this process as indicated-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 entry into the SCCJA testing process. The test registration fee of $85 is not refundable under any circumstances. Individuals who pass the SCCJA preliminary testing process will be eligible to apply to participating departments without paying additional processing fees.


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. The test registration fee of $85 is not refundable under any circumstances.
