Any information on this department? Such as how many they are looking to hire, if it’s a fair hiring process and how the department is?

Thanks

I’d like to know more about the department as well, considering that I couldn’t find much online.

I do know that Franklin is one of the more diverse towns in New Jersey and it’s very big. It’s the type of community I would be attracted to serving, but not being from this area, I’d have to know about the level of nepotism before thinking about applying.

I don't know much about the department however I have heard of them hiring people without hooks. I've never heard bad things about the department either, only good things.

Has anyone who took the written exam last week been notified of their score yet? They did not use PoliceApp and their PT test is a week from tomorrow and I was hoping to know my score beforehand. Thanks in advance.

I know people who received an email on Friday that they will be moving on to the PT but I didn't receive that email.

I received an email telling me I scored high enough on the written exam to move on to the physical. No score though, just that I moved on.

I'm going to be really bummed if I don't get an email from them by tomorrow; I always score a 93+ so I don't see how I couldn't have scored high enough to secure a spot in the PT. Now I'm worried I gave them my wrong email address and I screwed myself for no reason.

If you didn't receive an email don't fret! I received notice that I was moving on via regular mail along with the required forms. So if you live farther away from Franklin you may not receive your invite until tomorrow potentially.
