    Not at this point, but the assumption is yes, they'll be looking for transfers first. Unfortunately, no one really has info on when this place is going to open, Feb is a rumor until it's official, they legally have until Aug 2017 per the last extension... rumor also is we won't be c/o's we'll be something like mental health security specialist; not sure how the distinction will effect transfers.

      If you're at Pontiac, my recommendation is stay at Pontiac. The entire department is on a steady decline, and Stateville is at the forefront! Don't get me wrong there are some fantastic officers at Stateville, but the ratio between good officers and slugs is way too close for comfort. The "administration" are all hug-a-thugs, the majors are unprofessional, and Lt's and Sgts are typically clueless and the ones that are actually good are typically afraid of doing their job in fear of being put in the stop order book.

      I love Stateville because it gave me an opportunity to get my feet wet and in the system... but it's a horrible, depressing place and the direction the department is going in only makes it worse. The inmates very literally run the asylum. I'm sure some people on here from the Ville will be angry at my words, and some will agree whole heartily, but if you have any questions feel free to pm me. I won't hold any punches.
      Totally true, I would also say STAY where you are at. Side note, anyone that would say Magnus is wrong or they get mad, its only because its the TRUTH.

        I currently work at Pontiac. And it's great there. But I've been thinking of transferring to Stateville. Thing is, I've heard terrible things about Stateville. Like how inmates run it, rules aren't followed, it's generally less safe.
        I also had a girl who used to be a dentist there and is now a co at Pontiac tell me that it's super chill and I'd love it.
        I know opinions are always different, but I was hoping someone who works there could fill me in on the daily life and how it is to work there. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
        Not sure what your long term plans are, but IMO you should get out and get on a better department before its to late. Things in IDOC will most likely get worse before they get better. I never knew how bad it was at the ville and IDOC until I changed departments.

              I think it depends on score and where you are wanting to go. Most say at least 6 months but I've seen posts on here from pepole who took less and some more. When did u test

                Anywhere from 3 to 9 months depending on your background and facility!

                    They are suppose to have another academy class after this one but haven't heard for sure. It's a process. Took 10 weeks to get a score

                            70 or above but you cant get on with a lower score. depends on the location of the facility really. Stateville wants a score of 70 or better

                              depends on the bg check. It took me 6 months from test to cad. Some longer some shorter depends on the facility and their needs.
