Applicant Investigation Unit

Applicant Investigation Unit (609) 882-2000 ext. 2533

Is tasked with conducting all pre-employment background investigations on candidates for the New Jersey State Police Academy. In this capacity the Unit assists the Recruiting Unit and participates with the strategic planning for each new State Police selection process initiative. Unit members are an integral component of all phases of the selection process between initial recruiting of qualified candidates to acceptance to the Academy. The Unit assists with the Written Examination, Physical Qualification Test (PQT), Oral Assessment, Medical Examination, and Psychological Evaluation. As a cost saving measure, unit members fingerprint applicants who pass the PQT at road stations.

The Unit also coordinates with the Office of State Police Affairs and Office of the Attorney General, concerning applicant qualification issues. The Unit is further tasked with providing requisite documents and forms necessary to complete the applicant selection process. The Qualification Review Board (QRB) consists of State Police personnel and members of State Police Affairs, which will review all potential candidates. Applicants who are deemed "Recommended" after the Background phase will undergo a medical investigation by Unit Members.
