    I'll give you a shiny new nickel if you can figure out what type of enforcement you'll be doing the majority of your shift with 2,200 residents and IL-56, IL-83 and IL-38 running right through it.

      I was a CSO for a town right next to OBT. OBT guys always seemed alright but I didn't get to interact with them much. But yes, its tickets, tickets, tickets with the added spice of having to deal with the neighboring Oak Brook residents (hint: they're snobs).

        I can't see them hiring a lot. They just had a listing not too long ago for P/T guys too. P/T guys save the village an insane amount of money.

              Are you sure about that? They had a listing not even a few weeks ago? Maybe it was for certified guys now that I think about it.

                100% positive....they had a CSO opening about 7 months ago. Only P/T employees are the desk officers.

                  SomeChicagoDude, you are STILL at this? I'm sorry but if you haven't gotten anywhere by now, I would seriously assess what is holding you back, and possibly look into something else.

                    Still testing at different departments? Yes. Let's see the first test I passed was CPD 2013, but they still haven't gotten to my lottery number yet. Getting closer but not there yet. That was December 2013.

                    Then I started testing in May 2014 with suburban PD'S and continued forward since then. So I've been actively and agressivley testing for the last 7 months and I'm on exactly 12 different eligibility lists so far. 12 of them including CPD haven't DQ'D me or got to me yet but they will give me a shot soon enough. And I've gained more experience in the hiring process with a few other departments already, not including those 12 I'm currently on the list for. I've heard many people tell me stories of testing at about 50 different departments before getting on.

                    So I've just assessed what's holding me back, it's called not a damn thing. Who would of thunk it?

                        Back by popular demand, for my friend SubZeroo...

                        Ahem! Ahhhhhhhem!

                        I was totin' my pack along the dusty Winnemucca road,
                        When along came a officer.com forum member with a high an' canvas-covered load.
                        "If you're goin' to Winnemucca, Mack, with me you can ride."
                        And so I climbed into the cab and then I settled down inside.
                        He asked me if I'd seen a road with so much dust and sand.
                        And I said, "Listen...SomeChicagoDude's testin' at every agency in this here land!" (Until I get the call)

                        I've been everywhere, man.
                        I've been everywhere, man.
                        Crossed the desert's bare, man.
                        I've breathed the mountain air, man.
                        Of travel I've had my share, man.
                        I'm testing everywhere.
