  • Anyone know anything about Cook County Adult Probation Dept? Specialized Units?

    Anyone have any knowledge of the Cook County Adult Probation Dept. specifically the weapon carrying units such as Intensive Probation Supervision (IPS), Gang Intervention Unit, Home confinement, etc...

    Seems like quite a few people have quite a bit of additional training and etc to add to their resumes. However, I'm unsure of their arrest authority while in the streets? Seems like after the mess with the warrant-less searches surfaced, not much is available online. Looking at the dept as a career opportunity!

    I understand they receive a lot of training at the police academy but outside of being sworn by the Chief Judge, are they law enforcement officer certified? authorized to carry off duty? Any one work with them or is actively on one of the units and can discuss the experience... Would be nice if I could no the pros and cons vs. Cook County Sheriff's Office as a Correctional Officer/Deputy.
