    You need common sense for this job, if you don't have that, no amount of college is going to make up for that.

      Winner! Winner! Chicken dinner! He has no clue what he's talking about (again). I have more college education than 90% of the guys I work with and it means nothing if I don't know how to deescalate some nonsense, get to calls quickly, and put hands on somebody when its go time...plus write a good report. A great college paper makes for a horrible police report anyway.

          Has this department completed any hiring in the last few lists?
          I know there's only 19 officers in this department so it must be hard to get in, decided to apply anyway.

            You'd be better off donating that $40.00 to your favorite charity

          If you're thinking of cocktailing, don't drive on Harlem from 26th to Pershing. Riverside will get you and their Chief enjoys contacting the media about it. Low speed, traffic town.

            200+ candidates

            2 immediate hires due for the academy in May.

            Other openings also available for academy in August.

            Lets see how this process goes. Chief mentioned an expedited hiring process

            Over 200 people applied to a department with what 20 full time officers? Holy moly. Umm about 185 of those wasted their money as they won't even sniff a background nor a job offer.

                Well, here is a positive status update. The department I was interviewing for that stated was not hiring is now hiring 1 asap. It just goes to show that sometimes things happen for a reason.

              If you have a bachelor's, you should apply to Elgin. We are taking apps AND are actually hiring. Shoot your shot.

                scotty_appleton814 What timing, I had just called the number listed on the Blueline. The age cut off says 35 and I wanted to inquire if Elgin follows the state statue for veterans. This would allow me to apply due to age.

                  @scotty_appleton814 I have found the answer. Yes, they do allow an age extension. I will be submitting soon.
