    Just a heads up, they are still combing their list. I got a call as well asking if I was certified , interested, etc. I passed up the opportunity because of where I'm at, and the guy on the phone sounded very supportive. Sounded like good guys.

    They are very proactive traffic ticket writers. Also, if you are not going to make probation there, they will tell you as they fire you a day or 2 before your probation is up. Kind of crappy move if you ask me.

    Oh ok. That's good information, thanks. I agree about the LED's, although I don't know if it's the lighting on Harlem or like you said, but you almost can't look at the squad when it's lit up...it's like trying to stare at the Sun, haha! I do know that they are very proactive. If any PD is to ever pull you over it's them. I believe they issued the most traffic citations in the state, or real close to it, if im not mistaken. Just try to go 5 over on that stretch and you get 1 car...2 minutes later...another does a u-turn on Harlem and then the supervisor drives by to make sure they can handle it, lol! I pass through there alot...some family that way. They're on top of everything that's for sure and I like to see that!

    I haven't received any calls, but I don't really plan to anyway. Like I said, I'm in the 40's range. I didn't even update my application with them to say I was certified either.

    I do know a guy who was previously on that PD. He spoke highly of it. Good technology & vehicles, good morale, good money, etc. Some people just find their 12hr shifts difficult. The vehicles they drive have the BRIGHTEST LED's I have ever seen, lol.

    I know this is an older thread, however I brought it up to ask a question about that past process because I was there also. I got a call from a SGT on Wednesday, he said they were updating their list to see if candidates on the list were still interested. He did not get into any specifics except that they hired only 2 since 7/12. Anyway, the question is did anyone else get that call and also anyone know of any vacancy/future retirements, etc. there or how far they are on the list? ^BTW Raiden, I did pick up on that whole hand-shake thing (smh)!

    I just don't see why a department like this, just doesn't test with laterals/certified.

    sorry Lock, yea the lists were out a long time ago. Like raiden said, at the orientation b4 the test they said nothing would be mailed, only on website/posted at their city hall.

    That sux to hear that about that guy, and unfortunately, that's how palos does business. I would be extremely upset as well.

    The final list is on their website. I have a 90+ and I'm in the 40 range. I stopped paying attention. Palos never sends anything. Once the initial list was on their site, that's when you had the 10 days for preference. Now the final is up there.

    I met someone who almost got on with Palos. He went through the physical, background, psych, etc. Didnt end up hearing anything back. When he called and wanted to know why happened. They told him flat out they decided to go with a lateral instead and that he was considered "off the list". Needless to say, he was not pleased.

    Well, even a initial list. I would like to think that would have been mailed by now.

    A whole lot of nothing... I recall them saying that they may be hiring 1/2 over the course of this list, but i highly doubt that is even the case. Also, Palos Heights is notorious for grabbin up laterals, which is what their practice has been for the past couple hires. If any1 hears anything i'm assuming it would be #1 or whoever the #1 cert person is.
