    Can you say career suicide?

      To each it's on. I know an former officer there, he has nothing but good things to say since the department was raided a couple of years ago. The state is putting tons of money in Harvey's PD to clean things up. I'll be there at the test, I'm just not too excited about the $50 application fee.

          Stay the F$%K outta Harvey. If you ever want to leave there if u get hired, good luck. Harvey PD and the Village itself is still very corrupt. DONT TEST FOR HARVEY.

                  I am desperate, I just to want to get on somewhere. I have been testing for about six moths and starting to get frustrated. The process is so slowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.

                    I don't think Harvey is where to go if you're desperate. It's more like a war zone than a "foot in the door". They have a pretty high turn over rate, even for experienced officers that lat move.

                      six months is not long, most test for yrs before they get on. Dont make a mistake and go somewhere u wish you could leave but cant.

                        Elginguy, six months is nothing. Most guys test for 2-3 years before getting hired. Be patient, and pick the pd's that are right for you. You do not want to start in a war zone like Harvey PD. You will learn nothing. Start somewhere smaller, less active, but not boring....Here, you will develop the correct tactics and habits AT YOUR PACE, and will become a more seasoned and well rounded officer as the time goes. Then, when you feel like your ready for bigger and better, retest. Now, your resume should be filled with expierence, certificatons, and a good clean record (hopefully). Getting on with Harvey, your resume will look something like this:
                        Certifications: None

                        Expierence: Bouncing from call to call with little or no time to develop proactive patrol tactics. Developed an overall hate for society and diversity. Made due with "sub-par" equipment.Participated in ZERO specialties such as DARE, SRO, FTO, Control Tactics Instructor, BAO, etc..

                        Pending Lawsuits: 3,000,000,000

                        Times when you had to turn the other cheek for other officers: Infinate

                        I think you get my point, just read the other posts...these are cops talkin to ya..we know what your going through.�* We have all been there.�* Don't let the desire to do the job ruin your future career in law enforcement.�* Check the blueline, keep you ear to the ground, and don't make a bad choice.�*

                          Do NOT test for Harvey! You WILL be blackballed from a lot of other agencies who see Harvey as a synonym for the word CORRUPTION (no matter what they admit to). I would rather work the night shift at Wendy's than work at Harvey PD (probably pays the same too).

                          It is still corrupt and is the black hole of law enforcement endeavors. If you get fired from another agency Harvey PD is where most end up... B E W A R E !
