Stanhope is a Civil Service municipality. This means that the majority of the hiring (including for the position of Police Officer) begins with the New Jersey Civil Service Commission.
To be considered for a civil service position one must pass an exam specific to the position being sought and be placed on a list. To apply to take the civil service test for Entry Level Law Enforcement please visit the Civil Service Commission site at: http://www.state.nj.us/csc/
Positions that require no test will be advertised in the local newspaper as they become available.
