    Thanks...! when I was there, Stateville, for orientation I did see a bunch of guys walking in with ****, maybe it was just the holders...idk... one guy for sure though had sky blue handcuffs, lol, sure those were his... and all the SGT's (that I encountered at least) had OC, even the training SGT showing us around.

    Seems as if there may be rules, but either they are lightly enforced or not technically written into policy so you can get away with it. Like vests, someone asked can he wear a vest, and the answer was, "We can't tell you not to, and if the state would pay for it I think we'd all have them!"
    I'm almost certain that the people you saw walking in were not just walking into the joint from home going on post with equipment. They were most likely returning from outside posts such as writ's, hospital, mobile, etc etc etc or training and returning equipment to include the "blue cuffs." You will need two cuff cases (or straps) PLENTY of heavy duty key clips, a radio holster, duty belt and belt keepers. Some guys bought their own CPR pouches and gloves but that's optional.

    The policy on what is and isn't allowed into the facility is very clear.

        As for uniforms I've seen the blues that they wear while working and in the graduation pictures as well as the sweatshirts and khakis, do you wear both during the academy or just the khakis and sweatshirts until you graduate?

        • When I went through the academy we wore cadet uniforms sweatshirts and khakis up to the 5th week then we wore uniforms. You get sized the first week for your work uniforms. But I've seen classes after me wear them sooner so I guess it depends on the academy.

          • Hey all, I tested at Du quion in October and just got my scores back. I scored a 79. My 2 choices are Will and St. Clair Co. I am just interested in what my chances are in landing a job.
            Another question is does anyone know any specifics on the option of "statewide assignment"? How does it work in with the 2 lists already?

            • I tested back in April. Just waiting for that call.... My first choice has sent people to the last three academies. They don't have anyone in the current class. Fingers crossed I get my call soon!

                            Suppose to be nice next week 8-)

                            • We were just talking about that in TACT practice yesterday. The CT instructor is a freakin ninja... When he does the thing with the knife it looks like he'll kill you 5 times before you realize you're even dead...lol
                              I might be taking the CT instructor class and I won't be looking forward to it...lol

                              • Yeah, I realized he was a ninja before the knife, but became deathly afraid of him after...lol... I googled him last night and he's legit, there's videos and pictures of him from back in like the 70s teaching when he had long hair and a porn stache.
