          We're not the state patrol. We're the State Police. Big difference

            Just about every PD in Ilinois that is not looking for lateral hires. Check the Blue Line...

              Is that Illinois State Patrol security company still around?? I remember them having to fight in court because their patches looked almost just like the State Police, but the squad cars, LMMFAO were all different colors, when we would see them we'd call them "Rainbow" Security, there goes a blue car, there goes a red car. lol. They bought old PD cars, and old FD cars and old Taxi cabs.

                What ChiTown said. Basically you really can't send yourself through an Academy in IL. without already getting hired on, you really can't "self sponsor" yourself, nor would you want to. So to be a cop in IL., it's a straight ahead process. Test, get hired on, from there you start getting paid and they send you to the Academy. Once you graduate, hit the street with an FTO and begin your career.

                      You test, get hired & they send you to the academy {Chicago, PTI, Cook County, Triton College, etc.}. You are paid a salary to attend school. It's that simple.

                        In the academy - CPD Metro

                        ...so far everyone in my class is sent from a department. no one has paid to self sponsor themself.

                          I went to the academy with a guy who paid his own way. He was an "intern" through the training and standards board. He paid his way using money from his GI bill.

                              Actually, there use 2 be a way to put urself thru an academy that was regulated by the ILETSB, but they stopped that about 3 years or so ago... u paid ur own tuition (about $2000 or more, I think). Once u went thru the 12 week academy, u had a graduation ceremony, and u earned ur certification. (Great opportunity, but as usual, someone messed it up 4 everybody, and thus cancelling the program. Of course it was blamed on lack of money.) And even when this option was available, u would still have 2 go thru the average IL law enforcement dept's. academy all over again for specific dept's. (i.e. CPD, ISP), u just didn't have 2 take the state exam because u would already b certified... this is also the case when you apply 2 most dept's. if ur already employed w/ one, and r looking to go to another dept. Laterals are almost non-existant in IL.
