Suffolk County is Hiring

  • EAST ISLIP, N.Y. - The exam isn't until Saturday, but 29,300 people apparently have already done the math. With a starting salary more than double that of the nearby NYPD — and potential patrols on sandy beaches or quiet suburban streets — tens of thousands of potential recruits have plunked down a $100 entrance fee to take the Suffolk County Police Department entrance exam.
  • It is believed to be one of the largest numbers of applicants to ever sign up for a police test in the United States.
This flies in the face of recent hiring trends for police jobs nationwide. One has only to look at the drop off in applicants for the CPD to see that big city police jobs are rapidly becoming among the least desirable around. Funny how big cities seem to be hotbeds of liberal social programs and declining interest in police jobs.

not many want this job and when the college kids get it they use it to get more education paid 100% by the tax payers and then the smart ones leave! maybe if the kids in college study harder and get better grades they will not even consider daleys criminal enterprise at all!

It's so sad, knowing that CPD is one of the highest paid (large cities) in the nation, but are scrambling for applicants.

I think you meant: "declining interest in police work."

In the 80's and early 90's the Chicago Exam was always over 30,000. I f I'm not mistaken the test in 91 had over 40,000 applicants

Suffolk Co. encompasses the eastern suburbs of NYC, directly across the Queens city limits. Many NYPD officers already live in Suffolk Co.

Any young NYPD officers who did NOT take the exam should have their heads examined.
