Governor Murphy Signs Senate Bill 3220 Into Law

On Thursday, February 4, Governor Phil Murphy signed Senate Bill 3220 into law. This legislation allows the Civil Service Commission to exempt entry law enforcement position applicants who have successfully completed a full basic course for police officers from the civil service law enforcement requirements. A municipality must adopt an ordinance authorizing the hiring of such applicants as well as a conflict of interest and nepotism policy before permitting such a hire by the police department. This legislation primarily impacts civil service municipalities. P.L. 2021, c. 7 takes effect August 4, 2021, but the Civil Service Commission may take anticipatory administrative action in advance to implement this new law.
