  • Melrose Park PD vs Carol Stream PD

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone knew anything about either of these departments. I only found some info on Carol Stream PD, which wasn't very positive. They are both testing on the same day and was wondering which one I should apply for. Are either actually hiring and if so, how many are they planning on hiring? Thank you

      Yup it's annoying. Then I have to plan ahead for future apps because they end up overlapping with other current testing processes, so I'm always triple-checking the dates.

          These Dept's are like night and day. Depends on what kind of policing you want to do, and where you want to do a career.

                    Familiar with the area, close to current residence, prefer laser written test, pay, news articles, and app deadline. I was initially leaning towards carol stream over melrose but nobody convinced me to go for melrose. No solid reasoning really.

                      I will also be testing there. I am turning in my app today since it's the deadline. Also have a poly for another department today but doesn't mean I will get the job. Plus carol stream is only 10 fee

                        You better be a big fan of traffic enforcement.

                          And over-zealous bosses that jump to write you up for leaving your beat if your GPS pings you. Don't sit idle for too long either...

                            If you want to be the police go melrose park. If you want to be law enforcement go carol stream.

                            Carol stream is mostly industrial and micro managing from what I've heard.

                              Melrose Park also requires residency. That's why I didn't consider it.
