If you’re interested in a career in law enforcement, this job fair is for you.

The Union County Prosecutor’s Office and Kean University will host the Law  Enforcement Recruitment Fair on Wednesday, March 8th, from 10 AM to 4 PM at Kean University’s STEM building at 1075 Morris Ave., Union.

More than 50 federal, state, county, and municipal law enforcement agencies will come together to participate in the joint recruitment event.

In early 2022, the two agencies hosted a similar law enforcement recruitment event that hosted over 40 agencies and saw over 1,000 participants, which resulted in hundreds of hires at various agencies across the state.

The goal behind the fair is to recruit the next generation of officers.
