    you can talk about me , my spelling or take shots at me personally, but dont talk about my dept. which obviously you know nothing about ....p.s cpd does not have 13000 coppers, that number is inflated and know one really knows and you can even ask the leuatenants at the cpd and im sure not gonna take advice from a sapposed det from chicago who is on this message board more than he is solving crime
    Let me guess, you tried to get on CPD but failed the psych or background? You were in the METRO academy, not the CPD Academy...we went for 26 weeks, you were there for 13. Don't say that CPD recruits call you for advise, maybe a METRO recruit does.
    IF you can't spell the ranks, you can always use Lt. SGT. Det, or PO. Don't bash Veteran CPD Det on this board, it makes you look more embarrasing then your spelling does.


    • Here is my advice to everybody looking at Harvey PD. If they want to send you to the academy, accept the job & continue to test/apply elsewhere while in the academy {just keep it quiet}. If you decide you like the place great & if you dont, by the time another agency gets to you on their list, you'll be trained & ready to go {tons of people go this route}. If you stay past 6 months then you're probably "stuck". You'll know VERY early on if you plan on working there for the next 20+ years. Just remember, they have had a ridiculously HIGH turnover rate for several reasons....

Officers have been convicted of home invasions and putting a contract on other officers lives, I don't think throwing up a gang sign is below some of them. It is not the department I am growing tired of, it's the city. Like another poster said, waiting 3 years for a job is asinine. I've still got years to up and move, but anyone not annoyed by this cities politics isn't paying attention. Plus, there are many "real police" departments in this country, Chicago just happens to be where I call home.
        I believe we have gone down this road reference to having "street cred" by growing up in Rogers Park. As far as having walked the halls of 1300 W Jackson or 720 W O'Brien as an employee of the City of Chicago you will not likely get your chance. Yes there are tons of people on CPD who do not belong there, some were bangers, some were made men, and some just had no business being cops. Go back and read some of your posts and the arguments you created. You dont have a clue about what it is to be a cop or a soldier or a marine or all of the other things you claim to be. Just shut up, listen, and learn!!!!!!!!!!!!! Trying to one-up and bash people who do know what they are talking about is plain stupid and it wont get you far in LE. Not at all.
        You cant arrest me...I know my Commandments!!


        • Backgrounds started today. It's surprising because I thought they would have released their eligibility list before contacting folks to come into the station to sign forms....but I guess not.

          Rumor has it Harvey is hiring 9 and not 6 anymore (boy what a difference a couple of weeks can make). For those of you still in the process feel free to u2u me. Thanks for everyone who has encouraged me to apply, it's been the quickest process I've ever had for a department.

          Good luck guys.....and gals.

              BY FRANK MAIN Staff Reporter
              The FBI is conducting an operation in south suburban Harvey this morning. Sources say a Harvey police officer was arrested today in the suburb and a Harvey detective was arrested last week.

              The FBI said it would release more details this afternoon.

              The Harvey police department has been the subject of scrutiny by state and federal investigators for several years. Over the past year, a task force including members of the Cook County state’s attorney’s office and state police raided the Harvey police department and removed evidence that has been used to bring murder charges against several suspects.

              Also, a charge was brought against a Harvey detective for attempting to interfere in the investigation of a shooting of a fellow Harvey officer.

                    From the looks of the Sun Times article, they may have a few more openings...really really think if you want to be a part of this. So many problems in such a small dept. It may actually hurt your chances for other bigger agencys with Harvey PD on your resume.


                    • How did Kellogg get re-elected? It seems as if so many people are disgusted with him and his antics.

                      Harvey PD is stepping in the right direction S.L.O.W.L.Y with the new PD and new cars coming in. The problem is fish stinks from the head down. That town needs a complete revamp of its administration in order for its officers to perform appropriately.

                      Good policing is exactly what Harvey needs to clean up the **** that is going on.

                        It's better to keep your mouth shut and give the impression that you're stupid than to open it and remove all doubt.

                          If you still want to apply for Harvey, or continue with their testing process, to each his own. What that tells me is that you don't care about your future, your reputation, your integrity, etc. As i've said before, you swim in the sewer, you smell like Sh*t. And that sh*t stink will follow you for the rest of your career. To be blunt, i hope those, if they get hired here, stay in Harvey. I know i don't want you working for my PD......

                          That's a pretty harsh thing to say. I don't wanna dissect your comments, because I respect your position as a law enforcement officer. However I will say I have a respected position (not sworn) for a agency that assists CPD everyday. My references include, a former commander of CPD, the Deputy Director of my department, and a retired District ISP Commander. I'm only mentioning this to show I have a pattern of morality and integrity.

                          With that being said, several local officers on this forum can vouch for me....we've talked in private about my decision to continue my application with Harvey. Not one of them have questioned my integrity. I can't speak for all the other applicants, but I can say I'm about as "clean cut" as they come.

                          I'm not like most guys on here who aren't officers yet. I REALLY respect you guys. It's an honor to have a forum such as this one that allows us to communicate. I'm sorry if I've offended anyone by applying to Harvey, posting updates in this forum etc. However it is my personal decision.

                          Once again, thank you to everyone who's reached out to me privately and given me advice this past year. I've soaked up everything you guys told me.

                          Now can we all just get along?

                          P.S MJN325....your link is broken.

                              • We have tried over and over to get these guys to listen, they wont or dont want to so everyone should just give up.

                                I linked several articles before and now you have 4 officers arrested. I have very close knowledge of HPD and the dept and city admin. I told you guys.

                                I also know for a fact that several other cities and villages have stated that they WILL NOT hire a HPD officer period. Do what you want, when you get stuck there and you go to retire and have no pension then you will see.
