      Are you talking about Lutheran Gen Hospital security? If so, you're security for the hospital, not Police, not a peace officer, not sent to an academy.

        I was talking to one of the officers there and he said that they are tied in with Park Ridge PD. They are a certified police department. They have one opening for anyone interested.

          Private hospital cannot have a certified PD. He's BS'ing you. They may be Park Ridge Auxiliary or something like that, but a private institution (other than a private Univ. or RR) can not have a PD.

          There are numerous hospital security guard openings in the Chgo area.

            Down here in Texas, hospitals have full police depts. they are given their power from the county. Don't know about IL though

              It's the same here, in Cook County at least. I haven't heard of any other counties with hospital Police but there are only a couple Hospitals I know of. Stroger and Oak Forest. Think they are certified through Cook County Sheriff's Police Academy. All others I believe are security officers, whether they are armed or unarmed. Could be wrong though

                They are, along with Oak Forest Hosp. and Provident, Police Officers because they are County owned and operated hospitals, thus municipal entities, not private hospitals. Others (private hospitals) cannot have full , certified PD's, but they may have agreements through the towns they are in to have their guards given powers through that town as auxiliaries, "special," or reserve P/O's. But standing on their own, cannot be a PD in Ill.

                  An example of what Chitown is talking about is Rush Hospital security's designation of "Special Police" in Chicago.

                  UIC, Northwestern, and U of C PDs have 1 or 2 man details that work their hospitals, but they're primarily patrolled by security.

                    Chitown has been around a long time and worked in a variety of places, so I would go ahead and assume he knows what he is talking about.

                      I think saw hospitals when they made you bite down on a stick while your leg was amputated.

                        That's what I figured. Every time I've seen postings for hospitals, with the exception of County, it says security officers and I've never heard of PD's being "tied" with Police Depts cept UIC & U of C either

                          We'd have them take a swig of "Old Red Eye," and then give them the ball from our black powder pistol to bite down on..LOL After we tied our horses up out front..

                          Northwestern Memorial Hosp. is actually a separate entity from the Univ. Always had their own security, now contract security.

                            I worked security there before getting hired on with my current department. I'm not surprised that someone there would attempt to say they are "tied in" with a police department.

                            Don't be fooled: it's security.
