                I tested in April, and I'm looking to go to Pontiac or Stateville. My background check cleared beginning of August.

                      I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that might not be true. They are opening up the mental health facility in Feb of 2017 due to a long *** legal law suit against the state. When I was there I was told 400 officers are going to be needed for that facility alone. The officers that will go first are the ones that receive the special med training in the academy that I went through myself. They are no where near staff capacity at NRC or stateville. Having said that, if they pull 400 officers from ville and NRC thats going to leave a huge *** hole in staff there that is already short as it is. Now if they are saying right now as in the next 2 months or so perhaps. People are leaving the state all the time and if they aren't taking in as many as are leaving well..... lets just say it can get ugly there. Talk to people that are being mandated to stay all the time because of staff shortages. The job pays 46k starting.... I made that in 6 months...Just saying....that alone tells you just how short staff they are. Keep your head up and stay positive. Start applying to other places as well. THEBLUELINE and APPLYTOSERVE have tons of jobs. Good luck

                      • Got a letter to test in October. I wonder when the next academy starts? I'm hoping its in January. Maybe with some luck I can get into that.

                          That sounds good! Hoping for the best and I'll for sure keep my head up. Appreciate the info, gives me hope! Also on list for CPD and hearing they're hiring almost 1,000 is good news too hopefully.
