8/5/2014 - 2013 Police Sergeant Test Results

On August 6, 2014, Police Sergeant test results will be issued for the 11 towns which will have priority promotion lists.

These eligible lists will NOT be posted on the CSC website. Individuals on these lists will receive their test results by mail. Candidates who are not eligible for priority promotion will also receive their test scores in the mail. Regular eligible lists will NOT be issued until the appropriate number of appointments have been made from the priority lists. Once all required priority appointments have been made, regular lists will be issued. At that time, candidates appearing on these lists will receive their final score and rank. Regular lists will have a three-year duration which will be based on the date they are issued.

The 11 towns which will have priority promotion lists are:

  • Atlantic City
  • East Orange
  • Elizabeth
  • Hoboken

Important Note: If you do not receive your test results within 7 days of the issue date and you've changed your mailing address within the past 12 months and have not informed the CSC of your new address, please update your address information here.  Please include a note in the "Comments" section of the form stating that you have not received your Police Sergeant results in the mail so that your notice can be mailed again after your address has been updated.
