      I know a couple of guys that work there or have worked there, its seems like a good dept. You can get a lot of action since you get a lot of the garbage from Lockport and Joliet moving through town. Also, there are a couple of shady bars that will get a decent amout of disturbances.
      It seems as though some guys use Crest Hill as a stepping stone for larger depts. i.e. Joliet, Bolingbrook etc. Overall you may as weel call it Joliet north. The guys on the dept. also seem pretty happy there.

              I was supposed to take the test, but my state certification test was the same day for the part-time academy, and I was unable to reschedule it =(. I know a guy on the department, and he LOVES it! It seems like they get a lot of good action here, as there are not only a couple shady spots and garbage from Joliet and Lockport, but there are a few bad neighborhoods that the Joliet coppers do not even like assisting with! My cousin's boyfriend took the test, and he passed as well. I heard that something in the neighborhood of 25 to 30% of the testers actually passed. The officer I know often refers to Joliet as a mini Chicago, and Crest Hill as a mini Joliet!

                there was 100 or so people at the test so roughy 30-40 are interviewing and there only taking 2 hmmmm

                does anyone know whats up with the police chief thing. I heard the current chief is a temp chief and they havent appointed a permanent one as of yet? Does that mean they have to wait to hire until they get a permanent chief
                Please let me know, Thank you.

                  They have a lieutenant who is acting chief and have not appointed an actual chief, I don't know if they will wait for that to hire or not.

                      Crest Hill is only about a 20 man PD...You may have to wait for the whole PD to be replaced a few times..
