    I would like to bust some myths, I heard you can come home on weekends? Also heard that they provide transportation. Sounds far fetched to me but I'd rather know. If they are false can you give me the actual procedure? Just have the wife being curious lol

        Yes you go home on weekends..Friday and Monday will be your shortest days usually. Also whatever facility hired you...you will report there early Monday morning and the bus or van will take all the cadets to Springfield

          The last time when I was in the academy they did not allow cell phones as well. But someone told me that they are starting to. I guess that was wrong info. The bus that picked me up for the academy starts out at Stateville and stops at pontiac and sometimes lincoln picks up people on the way down the Springfield. Other facilities do have bus service that takes you down to the academy.

                    Yes from the first day...a bit of warning if you get hurt during your stay at the academy level you will STOP being paid until such time you can return for the next academy date.

                      Not sure. I am no longer there but have friends that are. From what they tell me, they are closing the round house only. And they have the new mental health facility opening soon. I hear 400 officers for that location but that may have changed. And those officers will have a different title. I heard that they are also going from revolvers to glocks, and from blue shirts to tan.

                        From my experience they have people leaving all the time so one ever knows. Its the Gov. and budget that dictate that.

                              Only if you have a CC permit. BC your not deputized you cannot carry under your badge. The dept wont let you carry off duty.

                                Thats what I was afraid of. CC permit is such a scam in Illinois, well anywhere being that permits to carry are unconstitutional but that's besides the point. But 150 dollars to CC when I paid 35 for mine in WA
