  • Congrats everyone!! I’m two weeks into the academy already. The academy was shortened down to 13 weeks for us. Make sure to save up some money!! Uniforms and equipment cost a little over $1,100. Gun and gun equipment cost around $950. We still haven’t bought our Class A uniforms yet so that’s probably another $500!! Also, PRACTICE PUSH-UPS!!! If you all have any questions about the academy let me know. Again, congrats and stay safe out there!!

      - The first few days of the academy are a wake-up call for sure. A lot of yelling, push-ups, and running. But, it's all for good reason. Make sure to double-check that you have all your equipment the night before. It'll make your first day go by a bit more smoothly.
      - Yes, you go home everyday.
      - School is doable during the academy, but only if it's online. The academy tends to take up a lot of your time.

      -During orientation, you'll fill out some paperwork and they'll go over all the equipment that you'll have to buy for your first day. The Chicago patrolmen's credit union will be there as well. If you want to take out a loan with them, they'll have you fill out some paperwork. They'll also take your picture for your Sheriff's I.D.

          I would send an email to HR inquiring about your status.

      • I interviewed earlier this month, and I'm still waiting for the drug and Psychological test,I guess they passed me up hope I don't have to go through this process all over again.

          There is no psych for county. I would call the merit board and ask for a status update. If you haven’t received an non select letter or DQ you should be good

      • Yes it was my final interview

        • I believe that the people who are starting on 5/10 took the test before me, is that the way it works can someone please explain, and as far as the Academy do they have a payment plan, and how many push ups are we talking about.

            @FinnFinn.. No set number on push ups at the academy you push till the instructor gets tired of seeing you all push !! Payment plan for the academy? You must purchase all of your gear and equipment prior to your start date no payment plan from the uniform store. You get paid while in the academy.

            FinnFinn You can take out a loan prior to the Academy, The loan places will be at your orientation. They deduct it paycheck by paycheck. Although if you can save now it would be better cuz the interest rate can be high. You need about 3000 total.

        • I took the test on the 28 of Dec last year

          • Thanks for that I haven't received anything as of yet. So no news is good news, but I will be reaching out to them.

            • Hello,

              Does anyone know if the first interview with your investigator changed?
              I have not heard back from my investigator after I filled out and sent him the two forms he sent me via email.
              He said he will call or email if he has any questions regarding my PHQ or documents. Does this mean I'm just waiting for the email if I get certified or not since it is about to be two weeks?

                FinnFinn Cool, thanks!

            • Arroyoe From my experience yes you’re just waiting for the certification email. If he has questions before certification he’ll contact you.
