      Same here! I think it's west of the Maywood area?
      West of Bellwood and Hillside on St. Charles Rd. Not much to the town, not much of a PD. Be lucky if they hire 1 off the list.

            How they run their Power tests are a bigger joke.

                Some people they will grade hard and be strict with form and what not. Others they will let them get away with god awful sit ups and even pass them if they don't meet the min. They barely pay attention to the run and will miss laps (I've had it happen before too). I've always been vocal about my dislike for that company.

                I remember when I tested with Midlothian (not the previous test). This girl failed the bench & sit ups and they continued to let her participate and told her "she would just need to work on it before the academy". She failed the run and they FINALLY told her she officially failed and had to sign out. Yet I saw guys who failed the sit-ups by one or two and they were failed on the spot. The company is a joke. Here's an idea. Get some actual employees that know what they are doing instead of your attention-span-of-a-goldfish children to do run times and scores...

                    Lol, exactly. If you want more hilarity, ask him if you can wear a watch during the written. He will go into a 20 minute rant about how you will pay attention to the watch and not the test, and how you should pay attention to the test, and how it wouldn't make sense, etc. Yet will never actually give you an answer in his rant, lol.

                      I was afraid to ask that guy and his 3 generations of family (that he brings to each test) any questions, lol!

                        For real, lol. I'm thinking COPS is just a poverty, family run business. BRB, "professional" testing for police Officer's . . . has 15 year kid playing on his iphone timing your run. Really? REALLY??

                            I get disappointed when I find out their running a new test...only thing that comes to mind is:..."the circus is in town, again!"

                                Yeah, I'm not a fan of these guys either. If you took the Midlothian test this year you'll remember that they couldn't staff both the bench press and sit and reach at the same time. The physical test always takes awhile but with these guys whatever time it should take gets doubled.

                                I also like how the guy who reads the instructions wants you to believe that he'll kick your butt right out for having the pencil in your hand but will let people "redo" their scantrons if they fill out one of the test parts in the wrong section. Once again, if you were at Midlothian you'll remember how many people did that.
