The candidates are required to read a set of information, and to appropriately apply the information to situations similar to those typically experienced in a correctional services setting. All the information needed to answer the questions asked concerning the situations presented is contained in the rules, regulations, etc. which are cited.

    NOTE: Please be advised that "A Guide to Taking the Examination for Entry Level Correction Officer Series"is attached to this announcement.

You may also download this guide from the New York State Department of Civil Service Website at http://www.cs.ny.gov/testing/localtestguides.cfm

    BACKGROUND INVESTIGATION, DRUG TESTING AND FINGERPRINTING: According to Civil Service Law and/or policy of this Commission, a background investigation (which may include a polygraph examination), substance abuse screening and fingerprint check is required. Each candidate will be required to provide a waiver and release permitting the Commission to disclose to the candidates current employer any positive test results. The Division of Criminal Justice Services requires each fingerprint search request to be accompanied by a fee. This fee must be submitted by the candidate. The fee is usually $75.00. The refusal of any candidate to submit the required fee shall, in itself, disqualify a candidate from being placed on an eligible list for certification. You will be instructed at the appropriate time when and how to submit payment.
    NOTE: CONVICTION OF A FELONY OR A MISDEMEANOR MAY BAR APPOINTMENT.

    MEDICAL AND PHYSICAL FITNESS: Candidates who pass both the written examination and the background investigation (including a fingerprint check) will, after a conditional offer of employment, be scheduled for the Comprehensive Medical Evaluation, the Physical Fitness Screening Test, the Psychological Evaluation, and any other tests deemed necessary including substance abuse screening. A MEDICAL EXAMINATION FEE OF $100.00 IS REQUIRED. CANDIDATES WILL BE INSTRUCTED AT THE APPROPRIATE TIME WHEN AND HOW TO SUBMIT PAYMENT. FAILURE TO APPEAR FOR A SCHEDULED TEST OR EVALUATION, OR FAILURE TO SUBMIT THE $100.00 MEDICAL EXAMINATION FEE AT THE REQUIRED TIME, WILL RESULT IN ELIMINATION FROM COMPETITION FOR THIS POSITION. CANDIDATES WHO ARE NOT SUCCESSFUL IN ANY PART OF THIS EXAMINATION WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED FOR FURTHER EXAMINATION. THE MEDICAL REQUIREMENTS MUST BE MET AT THE TIME OF MEDICAL EXAMINATION.

    IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE CANDIDATE TO NOTIFY THIS COMMISSION, IN WRITING, OF ANY CHANGE OF NAME OR ADDRESS: INDICATE EXAMINATION NUMBER AND TITLE, AND YOUR SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER.

    THE NASSAU COUNTY CIVIL SERVICE COMMISSION reserves the right to reject for lateness or to accept applications filed after the advertised filing period. The number of candidates who will be permitted to sit for the examination may be limited in the discretion of the Civil Service Commission. Therefore, candidates are advised to apply early.

    The Sheriff exam should be up this year, so hopefully. Good thing about these exams is not much notice is given about the exams and you have to be a Nassau resident, unlike the regular Nassau county exam with everyone applying

    How is that a good thing? Who cares if someone is a nassau resident?
    I think that you should be good to go if youre from nyc or the surrounding counties.

    A lot of good applicants will be lost because of the residency requirement.

    Anyway, good luck.

    if you signed up for both you have to tell both parties so that the county can send THE EXAM to the state testing site. so you really are taking both the same day back to back at the state site.

    This correction and maybe sheriff ( if they have the sheriff exam to boost money) exam for nassau county are both going to be very very limited. boths depts are NOT big. And I have to write this in bold bc I said this on the Nassau police thread and no one listened untill a couple of Nassau cops came on and said the samething I said.

    NASSAU COUNTY WILL NOT HIRE OR PUT A CLASS THREW UNTILL THEY GET THEIR BUDGET FIXED!! I WAS WORKING FOR NASSAU NON LAW ENFORCEMENT and WAS LAID OFF WITH 350 PLUS WORKERS NOT TO MENTION ALL THE PEOPLE THAT RETIRED. MANGANO IS USING THOSE NUMBERS FROM PEOPLE RETIRING AND LAYOFFS TO PUT TO THE BUDGET. SO HE IS NOT GOING TO SAY LETS PUT THREW A CLASS TO ADD TO THE BUDGET. NIFA THE STATE BOARD THAT IS LOOKING OVER NASSAU WILL NOT OK IT!

    it is a waste !!! Plus to add to the mess every worker in nassau's pay is frozen. So if you were to get hired your pay would be frozen!!! I am guessing at the starting rate 30k...i dont know what rate u would be frozen at.

    You sure you take the state test and than the nassau county exam? And it's not just 1 test for them all. I spoke to duchess county, and they said that the state exam will count for their county correction exam on the same date. (April 13th) I just have to file an application through them and send them a letter stating I'm taking the exam at the state test location.

    Not 100% sure but I found this link to a google book with some information on locations but I can't insert the link. My post count is too low. Google: Report of the Civil Service Commission of the State of New York - Volume 1 - Page 50 - Google Books Result

    Remember, its page 50. You will see all locations.

    I will also be calling to make sure. I assume it will apply to your nearest location. Hope this this helped.

    It's good for Nassau residents, but sucks for everyone else. I do like that they don't give much notice though and aren't really advertising it, this way it's not like the NCPD exam where so many people are taking it and aren't interested at law enforcement at all.

    If anyone takes this, you are a fool. You are required to sign a document that says you agree to an indefinite pay freeze until further notice. I know many people in this job, moral is at an all time low, its difficult to get uniforms. oh and to the person that says he is only 20 so 30k is ok, you are even more of a fool.

    Like someone else said, NO ONE will be hired unless its cleared through NIFA. Mangano sucks, and he is a numbers man, he will not budget any money for any new hires in the SD and even PD!! People say since he's up for re-election that he will lift the freeze, but why would he?! He didn't raise any taxes in nassau! But then people will say that, the 3,000 NCPD, and 1,500 NCSD officers or their family wont vote for him, like it will make a difference....Personally, I think the jail will be private shortly.

    Btw anyone hoping on getting a Deputy Sheriff job, you better know somebody high up, if you don't you have better chance of winning the mega millions 3 weeks straights.

    Sorry for being blunt, but i tell it how it is.

    Steve88 is 1000% right. Mangano can lift the freeze but like steve88 said mangano is a numbers guy and a republican..In any government office a republican is going to do anything not raise taxes to a point..this means no hiring, layoffs, and forced retirement. So to the outside person he is saving money but really he is CUTTING EVERYTHING AND MAKING YOU PAY $100 FOR AN EXAM THAT NO ONE WILL GET HIRED FROM!!! LOOK AT THE NCPD EXAM....SO MANY PEOPLE TOOK THAT EXAM IN '11 AND NO COUNTY CALLS...ONLY TOWNS AND VILLAGES ARE CALLING now from the NCPD exam for a class of 20-30 tops for all towns and villages...thats like 30 officers from what 20,000 plus people who took the exam. STEVE88 is also right about NO County workers are going to vote for mangano he is trash. NOTICE THERE ARE NO UNIONS PBA,CSEA,SHERIFF UNION, est BACKING mangano.

    @Republicangopmh- you think 30k is good..you sound like your 20yrs bc I hope you know on longisland you will not get anywhere on 30k unless you stay at your parents house till your 45yrs. Also with 30k and frozen pay you might as well go to stop & shop and work in deli or meat dept, You will make more than 30k after a few years.

    Im sorry for being blunt also but i am tired of seeing people coming on here thinking some test have good odds of people getting hired and THEY HAVE NO CHANCE OF GETTING HIRED. I love law enforcement just like Half the island does LMAO but you have to focus your energy on exams that HAVE BETTER CHANCES OF HIRING LIKE NYPD, NYC CORRECTIONS, NYC SPECIAL OFFICER, NYC SHERIFF, SH*t Even Suffolk Corrections will hire more than Nassau bc they have a Need For officers and no nifa on their back. Also Note that most city exams go threw their whole list to get people so at least they WILL get to you and you have a shot, you may have a long wait but what can you do your waiting anyway. ALSO PLEASE READ NEWSDAY!! EVERY WEEK THERE is an article about nassau and the budget or something that has to do with the budget. If u read the paper you will see how Nassau doesnt have Money to hire anyone!

    Corrections was/is hiring,I got a call saying they wanted to hire only 9. Iast month. The sheriff's dept told me the tentative start date was Feb 1. I deferred but said I would be avail by March. They said that they should be hiring more soon, but this is Nassau and who knows. I'm ready now and awaiting another call

    I looked at the 2013 budget. nassau corrections lost 37 officers, they want to hire 8 or 9 before this new exam lists comes out. THE GOOD IS THAT NIFA APPROVED THIS BUDGET SO THOSE 8 OR 9 OFFICERS HAVE A GOOD CHANCE OF GETTING IN BUT LIKE YOU SAID THIS IS NASSAU SO ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN MEANING THEY CAN HIRE LESS NOT MORE ( ALSO YOUR PAY IS FROZEN TILL THE MESS IS WORKED OUT). THE ONLY REASON WHY NIFA APPROVED THIS WAS BC IT SAID IN THE BUDGET THAT NASSAU WILL GET FEDERAL MONEY FROM TAKING IN 100 FEDERAL INMATES. BUT THIS IS FOR THE PAST EXAM AND NOT THE ONE COMING UP. BUT YOU HAVE TO SAY THEY ARE PLAYING WITH THAT MONEY BC THEY LOST ALMOST 40 OFFICERS AND THEY ONLY GET TO HIRE 8..THATS BAD!

    I think that you should be good to go if youre from nyc or the surrounding counties.

    A lot of good applicants will be lost because of the residency requirement.

    Anyway, good luck.
    It's a good thing for Nassau residents. It's almost fair, too. We get screwed out of 5 points for the NYPD exam because we dont live in the city and potentially drop 1,000's of spots on the list because of it. Heck, not even Nassau PD has that residency preference iirc.
