    Typically they do a morning and an afternoon test. Always done at the Hilton off of 95th / Cicero. Each session has about 250/300 people.

    They have to hire #1 off the list, then can go to the first certified one on the list (this can be #2 or #25, doesn't matter). They like to stack the top spots on the list with certified. Had 4 that I know of retire recently. There were more, though.

Good, active department, well paying, good technology and vehicles.

    For 43, their written exam is DIFFICULT. They use an exam by CPS and it is probably one of the toughest ones I took for the suburbs. I believe they only give preference to military as well.
    This is true actually. I used to work for norcomm after they fired all the dispatchers. The mayor is a joke and so is the budget cutting. I say there's about 6 or 7 cop cars running on the street on a daily basis

    Sorry I don't have an answer to your question though. I know the area and have mixed feelings about it. I have family there and worked in OL before (in a different capacity).

    My take is that they like laterals, that is just an observation. Don't take it as a fact or anything. I could be completely wrong. This test attracts a lot of people for obvious reasons. I think it's an approximate 100 man dept because they deal with Chicago traffic. They pay well, nice equipment, squads, etc. The Officers are proactive and keep busy. I won't get into further details there.

    This area is important because it has the only Level 1 Trauma Center (Christ Hospital) for the South Side. A good percentage of Chicago shooting victims are transported there (from as far East as the Lakefront/NW Indiana). Sorry for the random info.
