      They haven't hired off an eligibility list in the last 10 years at least.

        It sounds like the department is really short on staff and in serious need.

          You hit it right on the dot. I was just talking to a guy yesterday and he was talking how short staffed they were. You will definitely stay busy in Dolton.

            They are literally always really short on staff and in serious need. They address it by hiring part timers and moving them to full time status eventually. I bet they'll hire off this lateral list since they dont have to certify you.

              As a near south suburb, there is some good work to be had working for Dolton. But I could never work where I used to live. It would be too many past women causing me current troubles

                  CCSPD practically patrols most, if not all of Dolton. The gang unit is always there, and I noticed that Cal City crosses through there a lot. SPD conducts a lot of traffic stops on Sibley Blvd.

                    Yeah they patrol the area but they aren't answering calls. It's mostly a political gesture. The residents get extra police presence. The sheriff says look we're here to help (vote for meeeee). As far as actually responding to jobs, investigating shootings etc. the sheriff's police isn't exactly keeping them afloat. They are mostly back up for whoever needs it in the area. Nothing personal, just being honest. This isn't Ford Heights. Every town over there has their own PD and most of them will back each other up. They may be short manpower but it's by choice. They keep trying to avoid spending money. It's not that they can't keep POs. It's that they can't agree to hire them.

                            And another reason you see the CCSPD gang unit in Dolton is because there is a nice size gang presence in Dolton. And you will see Cal City and Harvey, and Riverdale, and South Holland all cross the line of each others town because they have a lot of the same ummm 'clientele' conducting business throughout those near south burbs, so their investigations naturally lead them to blur the boundary line of their jurisdictions. And Sibley takes you from what, Oak Forest-ish all the way to Indiana, it's just natural that a lot of people and goods and things are moving on that street. I don't knock Dolton, I lived there for years and still have family there that I see often.

                              Genius! I figured I would be the door prize winner. Just hate that you beat me to it. I would certainly have stolen the idea.
