    I appreciate the advice Chitowndet and Chgometro. What I said about a "job being a job" obviously came out wrong. I want this as a career, I have wanted it for a while. But in this economy, especially in Illinois, I feel like a job with any department would be pretty great to have and I would definitely take advantage of the opportunity to have a potential career at age 22.
    Now as far as North Chicago goes, I know the area well enough to know that it's no Winnetka or Lake Forest. I guess I just went in with the mindset that if I do land a position with a department, my ultimate goal would be accomplished, without really thinking about what kind of policing I'd be doing as a career. Thanks for the eye opener.

          Receiving a NIPSTA power card. Then orientation.

            Based on the advice I've gotten on this forum and the advice I've seen on older threads, North Chicago is no longer on my list of places to test for thanks to some good members on here.

            Also seeing that Waukegan and Skokie are testing the same day, either of those departments would be much better options to try for. I will be taking Waukegan's.

                I also applied via the website, it said I should get an email with next step and have yet to receive it. I'm assuming this means the orientation this Wed night. They had the orientation date, time and location listed in the ad. If you need the address and time let me know..

                  Ok so, in doing some reading on North Chicago (we all know the current knews)...apparently there was supposed to be a community meeting last night and doors were locked. The good Rev. Jackson says that he plans on opening an office up there until reasonable justice has been done. hmmm.....

                  Anyone else going to orientation tomorrow night, this should be interesting...

                        uM....OK. I'm going to see the circus. Why would you want to work there?

                          JeffIL, its cool man not trying to go tit for tat just saying that this city is in dire need of direction and more importantly good people. So if your sincere about applying and not just coming for the show the fine, but if you plan on coming just to see the show then your actually taking a spot away from someone who could actually make a difference. So Good luck to you regardless.

                            Lol. No seriously, I laughed. I guess I can enjoy the idealism though.

                              I received the email last night about the orientation for tonight and written for Saturday.
                              Good luck to those that are going.

                                6 spots may open up on Friday depending on what happens...This is too crazy...wonder if Jesse Jackson will be at the orientation.

                                If somehow these officers are let go there is no way they can replace them with 55 candidates in the pool... and that's before the written test. They'll probably have to re-test very soon. Either way a very messy situation.
