    Your date is outrageously soon, though. From what I've read on timelines everyone else on here has had to turn in their packet 3 1/2 to 4 weeks after the SBSA/physical.

    But not like it's a bad thing. I'd love to get an e-mail tomorrow and turn in all my crap before this month and keep this thing going!

    • Yeah I agree it is very soon for me. But tell me what you think at my timeline with Cook County Sherrif's Department. Take a gander over here at this:

      08/19 - filled out and submitted online application

      08/22 - notified via email of written exam scheduled for 09/03

      09/03 - took and passed written exam

      09/12 - notified by email I passed written and given date for physical ability & SBSA exam for 10/12

      10/12 - passed physical ability and took SBSA exam

      10/15 - notified by email for the date and time to turn in background investigation packet (which means I passed my SBSA) including PHQ, and other documents, forms and ID's they requested for 10/30

      10/30 - meet with the merit board to turn in BI packet and forms.

      I'm not sure if I'm being rushed through quickly or if this is considered the norm for a timeline with their hiring process.

      • Somechicago dude, my time line is EXACTLY yours time wise, one day shy of two months from taking the written to packet drop off. Now all of the sudden it slowed down and I have been waiting just shy of a month for my BI call.

          • Does anyone know if they do background checks on references? I want to put one of my best friends for my personal but he has some stuff on his record, would that affect anything or no?

                    • If someone had been denied for their FOID card and they were in appeal process with the State police and finally granted to have a FOID. Would that disqualify you from being hired?

                            • Here's an update about my situation.

                              After missing my packet drop off due to not receiving an email notification; I called the investigator 3 times and finally was able to speak to her over the phone. She told me she sent my file to the higher ups to have my appointment rescheduled. So, it appears I'm back on track, but I've been pushed back a few weeks. Moral of the story, CALL CALL CALL!
