Hampden Township has joined with the Cumberland County Police Testing Consortium, a cooperative testing opportunity for those interested in a law enforcement career. This single testing process allows individuals to apply and test one time for any or all of the participating police agencies. There is only one application fee associated with this test.  A website has been dedicated to the consortium and will be the primary method of distributing information related to the test.
