Recruitment Plan

As per the NJ Attorney General's directive, N.J.S.A. 52:17B-4.10, please review our documentation on promoting Diversity in hiring and recruiting: Promoting Diversity in Law Enforcement Recruitment and Hiring

The goal of the Phillipsburg Police Department Recruitment Plan is to attract qualified individuals to pursue a career with the Phillipsburg Police Department. The objective is to achieve an overall racial and gender composition of the police department in comparison to the service population of the Town through the department's recruiting activities. This agency will make a good faith effort to meet specific goals for recruiting a diverse workforce, in terms of people of color and gender diversity. The goals and objectives will be accomplished through various recruitment activities listed in the Recruitment Activities section of this plan.

The Town of Phillipsburg is a New Jersey Civil Service Commission jurisdiction and must adhere to New Jersey State Statutes and Administrative Code in its recruitment and selection process.

The Town of Phillipsburg has a residency preference. Applicants for a competitive exam must be a bona fide resident of Phillipsburg at the time of the closing date of the New Jersey Civil Service Commission Law Enforcement Test. Once Phillipsburg residents have been exhausted from the Civil Service Certification List, Warren County residents are then provided with preference. If the Warren County list is exhausted, applications will be open to residents of the State of New Jersey. Intergovernmental transfers and candidates on the Civil Service Rice list are eligible consistent with Civil Service rules and regulations

The Town of Phillipsburg is an equal opportunity employer in all facets of the personnel process.

The Chief of Police, or designee, is responsible for the administration of the Recruitment Plan.
