    What, you all didn't hear? I'm hired. They said I could skip the test because they know how awesome we'll all do.

      I live in Downers Grove, for the most part it is pretty quiet there are a lot of retail thefts and traffic enforcement. In the last year or two got all brand new squad cars mostly explorers I believe. There is one that has the cameras that automatically scan all license plates that it passes. Most of the officers like their career here and are easy to talk to and professional, only complaint I hear is that it gets slow at times. That is all I know just by living here.

      I skipped on applying because I would need some new scenery for my career and not the same place I live for over 20 years lol.
      Good luck to you guys!

        Yeah I live just outside DG. I've gone on ride alongs there and it's slow, but a great town. The officers are all pretty cool.

          Anyone else feel paranoid at the test? I felt like management was staring everyone down hard core lol.

            Did they ever fix the financial situation here? I remember hearing just a few years back that there were budget woes and potential lay offs, etc?

              I'd assume so, considering the chief mentioned a new dept.

                From what they said is that they have one opening now, one sergeant leaving in January and then many over the course of the next two to three years for the list with people leaving for retirement. They said list will last either two or threes years.

                Should all have a good opportunity.

                  They get pretty far on the list too, usually towards the very end. Last test they had was about 3 years ago the chief said.

                  They're doing the oral interviews for the top 50 candidates. Looking forward to my results to see where I placed.

                    When the chief was referring to that one open spot, he gave me the look, paused, and a nod, as if to say, "Son, this spot is for you, just pass the remaining steps and you'll start at SLEA in no time."

                      Yeah... He totally ignored me, as to not make it obvious that I practically have the job. I mean you know, nbd.

                        Yeah I was just sitting and thinking to myself during the orientation, "could everyone stop asking DUMB questions!"

                          Hahaha. Seriously.

                          "Um, is the testing going to take place in this room?"

                          I was about to lose it.

                            In all honesty though, before beginning to apply to become an officer, I had no idea so many women tested to be cops. Not being sexist or anything, I just literally had no idea. Kinda cool seeing how many were there today.

                              Too bad the tests aren't equal.
