Yesterday, New York State Governor Kathy Hochul announced the application period for New York State entry-level law enforcement civil service exam is now open.
The exam will be used to fill positions in the Department of Environmental Conservation, The Office of State Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation, and the SUNY Police.
The exam will be held this fall and candidates can apply online HERE by Wednesday August 3 in order to take the exam.
“Today, we are giving New Yorkers the opportunity to join the next generation of civil servants and make a positive impact on their communities,” Governor Hochul said. “This exam will help fill critical positions to protect our state’s parks, universities, and other institutions, and above all, keep New Yorkers safe. As part of my administration’s ongoing commitment to maintaining public safety and diversifying our ranks, we encourage New Yorkers of all backgrounds to consider a meaningful and rewarding career in public service and apply.”
DCS estimates that approximately 400 entry-level law enforcement positions statewide will be filled over the next year.
