  • Getting depressed reading that there are people here from 2013/2012 still waiting. Have known 3 people so far that have been hired from written to academy in approximately 1 year. Also one that went straight from CCDOC academy to CPD academy. Hope they start calling us soon.

    • It is discouraging. Been applying for 4 years now to numerous departments. "Patience is a virtue" is extremely played out. Graduated from a great university. Now stuck with student loans. What's worse is knowing each year that goes by, you lose a year of serving your community. I apologize in advance for the rant lol

          Met with mine a week ago. Also dropped my packet off on Nov 19th so we have pretty close to the same timeline. Wish you luck! Hopefully we will be going to the academy together.

              He's a cool guy, pretty lean back. Just make sure that your references pick up their phones. He calls everyone that you listed.

                        Hell yea dude. Seems like everyone is freaking out over old testers and whatnot but everyone on here that has been updating us on their processes is on pace.

                        The sample of people testing AND on this forum is too small to get discouraged. Good luck on that poly and let's get it!!

                          Your problem is confining yourself to IL, which in all honesty is a TERRIBLE state to be looking for this line of work in. Small fish/Enormous pond competing against an even more enormous school of small fish.

                          I've lost count of the amount of great guys I know that have tried for ages to land work here, to only give up after a few years, test out of state and be in an academy or OTJ within months.

                            I agree a little bit with you on that, but any law enforcement job we apply to there's always going to be a lot of applicants testing. The problem is there's not a enough good paying jobs out there and we have people that don't have a passion for law enforcement applying just because it's a good career. I believe a third of the applicants out there never wanted to be a police officer their whole life (like me) and that makes it a lot harder. Everyone just stay positive keep working out keep your nose clean, and are chances to serve will come.

                            • Hey just a tip for anyone who is going to cut it close on the PAT run. When doing your run, they do NOT give you updates on your time when you're running around the track and there's no easily visible clock. If you need a timer to help you track your progress, bring a watch with a stop watch on it.

                              • There is a digital clock on the right hand side above the doors of the gym that you run in.... I used the time as a rough estimate of how much time I had left and it worked fine for me.... That is, if u don't have a watch
