NJ state police rely heavily on opinion, rather than exams, for promotions
"The New Jersey State Police are one of only two statewide law enforcement agencies in the country to rely almost entirely on the opinion of supervisors for promotions, a practice most discarded years ago in favor of more objective written and verbal exams."
"A Star-Ledger survey found that the Rhode Island State Police, with a force a fraction the size of New Jersey’s, was the only other to use such a subjective system. But even there, one high-ranking official said he is expecting changes."
