          Don't know if any one care or not, but there 2010/2011 budget is approved for 3 officers. But they are leaving them open due to budget issues. But hey 10$ isn't a bad idea for an app just to sit on list for 2yrs that may hire.

              Am surprised that this Department doesn’t require college anymore, it did years ago but now doesn’t.

                I used to work there and have good friends that still work there that are trying to get out. There is also another officer on the boards that used to work there that was lucky enough to get out. Feel free to pm with any questions.

                  Glen Ellyn was the only place I ever applied for that told us at the orientation that they did not perceive hiring anyone off the test we were going to take......and that was about 27 years ago! You should have seen people walking out when that was said...but the apps were free back then.

                      Caught this up yesterday right when I was about to start my class... I figured that the 200 would fill up quickly like Oak Brook Terrace did so I did the application on my phone... but alas, I'm surprised this is still posted... Guess I'll see some of you there.

                        I HIGHLY recommend PMing nkpd and the other brother who used to work at GEPD and see what they think...

                            ochave, Western Illinois Univ has one of the largest Law Enforcement/Criminal Justice programs in the country. There are 50 spots open to test at WIU. They want the best officer's for their department, and obviously recognize the quality of officer that graduates from WIU. That's why they are testing in Macomb.

                              Western is large and it makes sense that with the volume of students enrolled in their program that a test be held there, but on the whole I don't think the quality of graduates from WIU are significantly better than graduates of most other Criminal Justice programs.There are always exceptions and it would depend on what the individual student puts into it, but every time I run into someone who went to WIU for Criminal Justice the FIRST thing out of their mouth is, "I went to Western so I know I'll have preference." It gets really annoying.
