        Do you think i didn't do that already? There is no current information about the Rockford PD. It is all from or about prior tests. Thanks for being rude though.. great attribute for a future or current Police officer.

          They probably are hiring a lot of officers. I applied and did the physical/written oct 2013 and they were looking for 8+.
          The written test was challenging, probably the hardest police test I have ever taken...

          I do not work for Rockford PD but I heard it is a good department to work for and you can move up in rank quickly because a lot of the officers lateral out. There is action, expect to be on your feet during your whole shift. 7/10 people will probably run from you.

                      I used to hang out there a lot and have one friend still at RPD. They are busy all day long but morale seems to be good.

                        Big decision.. either take the psych on saturday or go to hampshire for their test.... I wish they had the 1 oclock option for rockford like they did for the written. i would be able to squeeze both in.

                          It all depends on where you want to work. There is a world of difference between the two places. I will tell you this...complete the process with Rockford and you will be hired, but be prepared to work hard there. It has always been a scheduling issue with Rockford for me. You really need to be available the next few months for them. My written psych for CPD is on the same day as Rockford's written psych. Good luck.

                            I purposely did not apply there just In case I made it to the m-pulse. But I'm pretty pumped that I did and am hoping to get an interview. Anyone know typically what fraction of people they take to interviews? For example if they have 15 positions will they take 30? Like southpaw said its a department thar has a lot going on which I would honestly prefer. Good luck to everyone. Any

                              Your odds are good either way. For 15 spots they will probably interview everyone that passes.
