    The first test date of April 4th has been cancelled also. I am sure we will make that test date up though.

    Hello everyone,

    I am very sad to report that our two open house events on March 14th and 21th have been canceled. If we do end up rescheduling, I will let you all know as promptly as possible. Stay safe.

    This is a flyer to one of our recruiting events. This is a open house that all prospective applicants are welcome to attend. You can get exposure to all of the special divisions we offer and have your answers about our hiring process answered in person. This event will be held at the Elgin Police Department on Saturday, March 14st from 0900-1200. Spread the word.

    I know that Saturdays are normally police applicant exam testing days, but find some time and come to one or both of these events. I really feel like someone reading this post is going to the person I am going to do their background investigation on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Greetings all,

    As we begin to kick our next round of recruiting efforts into high gear I will try my best to share information about my department that people may be interested in.

    I will start this off by listing the link to the EPD recruiting page. I will try to attach flyers here if I can figure out how to make the file smaller. Thanks a lot and I look forward to hearing from a lot of you.

    I read a while back that Elgin was planing on opening up part-time positions. Did that ever happened?

    Written Examination
    Candidates have two options for completing the written examination. You may take the written

    OPTION 1:
    The City of Elgin administers our written examination through National Testing Network, Inc.
    You must fill out an application and schedule a written examination through National Testing
    Network by going to www.nationaltestingnetwork.com, selecting "Police Officer Jobs" and sign
    up for the City of Elgin under "Illinois".
    What you will do on the www.nationaltestingnetwork.com website:
    Complete an application
    Review and confirm once again the information and minimum requirements for the City of
    Elgin police officer position
    Find detailed information about the testing process for the written examination
    Schedule your own examination time and location that is convenient for you. Available

    a test to qualify for the City of Elgin position is May 30, 2020.
    The fee for the test is $49.00. Submit your voucher code at the time of payment to

    be responsible for the entire amount of the test. The City will not retroactively reimburse
    the $10.00 credit.
    You will have the opportunity to take an online practice test at ergopracticetests.com for
    an additional fee, if you choose

    OPTION 2:
    The City of Elgin Police Department will be conducting the written examination on specific

    Test card requirement for those applicants that need the Power Test Certification. The physical
    agility portion of this test is optional and is not required if you already have a Power Test
    Certification.

    The written exam takes approximately 2 and a half hours to complete. The physical
    agility test will be given after the written examination.
    Candidates do not need to take the physical agility portion of the examination if they
    already have a valid Power Test Certification.
    Candidates should wear appropriate clothes and footwear if they are participating in the
    physical agility portion of the test.

    Space is limited to 200 applicants per time slot.
    You will receive an email from us once you submit your application with directions on how
    to schedule yourself for the written exam within 48-72 hours of submitting your
    application.

    Upon completion of the written examination, all candidate scores are automatically forwarded to
    the City of Elgin. Candidates who are one of the top 80 candidates scoring at or above 70% on
    the written examination will be moved to the background investigation stage of the process.
    Candidates passing the background investigation will be scheduled for an oral interview.
    Background Investigation

    The top 80 candidates who successfully pass the written examination will be subject to a
    background investigation which could consist of the following: complete criminal history check
    at the national, state and local level; complete traffic history at the state and local level; review
    of your credit history report, review of employment history with prior employers and possibly
    current employer; verification of military status (if applicable); personal/phone interviews with
