  • Info on Aurora PD

    I checked previous threads, but couldn't find much on Aurora. Anyone have any info on the pd? The shifts, morale....basically how is the department ran. Training....etc. Basically I hear it's a great pd, but would like more insight. Respond please or pm if possible. Thanks!

    Avoid them. They don't get paid squat.

      $33.82/hr after 6 months. That's not bad in my book!

          Yea same here lol...from reading the other Aurora threads does anyone know if those people in the 100-150s ever got called for an interview or even farther in the process. They scored 90+ on the written and were way down the list. I read somewhere some one scored a 100 on written and was 60th on the list. I'm curious if they got to move on in the process. Is that written test really that easy?

            Some written tests are. If they use the NCJSO 1 exam... Unless you score over 90 on that WITHOUT preference, don't expect to be anywhere close to the top. I've seen lists that use that NCJSO exam, and usually the first 10/15 people are all over 100. The last one I did, I had a 96 with preference and I was still 30's.

                ^What's your point? Those kind of comments show your age. So, I walk around with a little hope, what's it to you? The topic is "Info on Aurora PD".

                  Shifts are 8 hours with the same exact days off for the year (Mon/Tues, Thurs/Fri, ect.). Regular days, noons, and mids. Young department as Cadets get hired before any applicants at 21 and become POs and spend their careers there.

                  If you don't score above 105, stay home. 110 is the max score or used to be. Anyone in 110 or 109 range will be put through testing.

                  A Cdr. shows to be a speaker at the orientation. She is an author and a routine blogger. Well known in law enforcement and pretty down to earth.

                        Correct. 100% is top score on written and applicants are allowed 10 preference points onto their written score. 110% being the top. There will be at least 15 applicants that score at 110%.

                          Good to know. No preference here so I'll take that into consideration, thanks.

                            There is residential, military and educational preference and a ten point max on that. I believe it is one or the other on education and military plus any residency points.

                              Correct. Residential produces many hopeful applicants.

                              I am going to guestimate about 600-800 people at the orientation.
