NJLAP can schedule you for an appointment with one of our counselors as soon as we have received all the appropriate paperwork from the COC.
In addition, please note:
a.) With your letter from the COC, you will have an authorization and release form to execute and return to them. Once you have done so, and have chosen NJLAP as your evaluation provider, the COC has permission to send us a copy of your Certified Statement of Character and all pertinent paperwork. It will be reviewed and you will be assigned to a counselor. Your counselor will call you to schedule your evaluation appointment or discuss any additional paperwork that is needed (see item b). You will also get an email with registration information for the online class (see item 15 below) which we advise you to complete, if possible, before your evaluation appointment.
b.) Candidates are reminded to supplement the Certified Statement with narratives, amended narratives, police reports, disposition records and/or documentation of treatment. If you have already sent these items to the COC, you do not have to send these to NJLAP as they are already in your file. The COC will send us copies of all paperwork in your file. However, if these documents were missing from your COC file, you should immediately provide these documents to the COC, via an online amendment to your Certified Statement as well as copies, mailed or emailed, to NJLAP. These documents help NJLAP complete a proper evaluation. Sending NJLAP and the COC these documents will avoid delays in case processing.
