“In the private sector, human resources departments routinely search social media sites of job applicants in order to ascertain whether or not they would be a “good fit” or “problematic” since much can be gained reading social media to determine someone’s attitudes , likes, dislikes etc.
Unfortunately when you are seeking employment in a municipality that operates under civil service rules, all that matters is your score on the tests .
I don’t think there is a reliable way to predict behavior, but what is a reasonable proposition is to have on going random drug testing of all cops, lawyers, judges , doctors , teachers and elected officials.
It’s already in place for employees of transportation industries .
If you have nothing to hide, there is no reason to object.”

  1. Sounds like a great idea (sarcasm)
    Who should determine which professions require drug testing?
    Surely you can find a reason to test everyone.
    We should start Monday.
    Line up at the testing site.

  2. all public employees and state aid recipients should get drug tested

  3. They require mandatory drug testing twice a year for all police in NJ.
