        Making a list. There's no current openings right now but they have a few guys who are retiring in the next year or so, then they will have some promotions and have a few open positions very soon.

        Kev is your friend M. Puf? He was hired about 2 years ago and was at the written exam helping out as one of the proctors...

          I was under the impression they were out of money and being helped by county guys. Looks good that they are hiring!

            I know that before 1990 when they became an official PD, the sheriff's department was doing the police work for Prospect Heights. Yep, I hope everything goes good with the written!

                Yessssssss! Placed under the top #10 in the Prospect Heights PD written exam! The top 24 will move forward with the oral interview in July! This will actually be my first oral interview for a Police Department with the commission since I am used to CPD's hiring process which does not include the oral interview. Oh wow I'm excited as hell and nervous about my upcoming oral interview. Pretty amazing news a week before I fly to Vegas for Independence Day weekend and the fights out there.

                  ^Good job man! Good luck with that PD. Take it one step at a time. Just be prepared, show up, be yourself and get ready to field some questions by the commission/board members.

                    Thanks Southpaw! Going to make sure my suit, tie, dress shirt & slacks and formal shoes are looking spiffy. I'll arrive at least 30 minutes before whatever time I'm scheduled for the oral interview and be prepared.

                      Congrats. Only advice on orals; when asked negative qualities or weaknesses, make sure it's a quality that is easily improved and highlight what you are doing to improve it. Good luck!
