Join Us!

Would you like to become a member of the Sayreville Police Auxiliary? Many people join so they can get a feel for police work and to see if it is something they want to pursue as a full time career (we've had many who have gone on to become full-time police officers). Others join just to be able to help out the community.

Our application season for the 2017 Auxiliary Police Class has closed. Thank you to all of those who have applied and we look forward to working with those admitted to our program. For those who did not apply, we hope to see you during our 2018 application cycle, which begins July, 2017. Please bookmark this site and check back for future recruiting announcements.
