    How did they know about the Family members that had problems with the law? Did they look them up themselves or did they ask you about them?

      Damn that bogus I have five scumbag cousins that associate with gangs I don't associate with them at all and they've been locked up before, I don't even talk to them at family parties I even told them I wouldn't have a problem locking them up. I hope my one reference is right he's a sheriff police and told me it shouldn't be a problem just take a little longer to get hired I really hope he's right.

          If I remember part of the bi packet had questions about that. My pre poly questionnaire had questions about it as well. I answered no in all instances so it wasn't questioned.

            Thanks guys I forgot about that. I turned in my packet on the 22nd of September and also did CPD's background packet (PHQ) so I actually forgot about that question. Luckily for me I have had no family or friends in jail so I should be good to go.

              I had listed them in one of the questions. My BI said they have a new director overseeing the review of the packets so alot of things in his opinion that are trivial are being kicked back

Only thing after that I believe is the final power test which I won't have a problem doing because of weekends off in ILDOC academy and home interview which I'll need to figure out somehow.
                I'm going PM you regarding CPD medic,poly,interview psych

                    I took the SBSA on the 28th of September and still waiting for the results. However, I did pass the physical assessment. I called the Merit Board yesterday and they told me that the results should be available in another week.

                    Also, my professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago told me that for 2015, there's going to be 9 classes of about 30-50 recruits. He also stated that the department is hiring on a mass scale. He also gave me details on the academy, very juicy information. My professor worked 20 years+ with the CCSO. He also teaches a portion of the academic part at the academy. If you guys have any questions or concerns relay those to me and I'll be more than happy to ask him.

                      Well I've been told by 2 people that work at the county that now they are doing both academies to be a CO and sheriffs police. I know it's just a rumor but that would be cool.

                        Wow that's a long wait, I guess it really is different for everyone. I just called the MB to ask if they had results on my SBSA exam from this Sunday, nothing yet.

                          I heard from a Co that they want to make next year's academy 20 to 24 weeks instead of it being 16 so that might be true and supposedly they need to have like 1,500 Co's on pay roll be the end of next year due to a federal mandate. Still waiting to here from BI been a month now since I turned in packet.

                            It's interesting how everything has come to a screeching halt. People like me are waiting to hear from their BI after almost a month since packet drop off, but it seems like people have been waiting longer then usual for results on initial writtens and SBSA-LEO results. Let's hope things start to heat up again.

                                I've noticed that email notifications from the board come usually on Mondays around 10:30am. So, if you guys don't hear anything, call them Monday afternoon.
