      If you work for the city - you have to live in the city - there is no way around it.

          Wow, can't believe the test is in 6 days! I have been waiting over a year! I am really excited about testing for CPD! I know I will do well! I really appreciate the testing advice from everyone. Never though about wearing my glasses instead of contacts, great idea! I have taken several written exams for police departments and have read many testing books. I couldn't be more ready for this test! My scores for previous test have been 90% or better. The only thing that sucks is the lists keep expiring and I am not getting phone calls for the rest of the testing process. The power test, psych, medical, drug, and background is no problem for me, I know I can pass those parts, I just need that call to continue me through the process! Getting a call after I pass the written should be no problem with CPD because they are hiring a crap load of officers, unlike suburban PDs. They hire 1-5 officers in 2 years. I am just really excited and thought I could share my excitement with other recruits! Anyone else in the same boat with me?
          I hear ya.. I been studying for the test for a while.

          • My two cents

            not to bust your bubble but the waiting part and process after you pass the exam are the hardest.
            Just hang in there and good luck !

                    Check the CTA website. There are trains and buses that go to the college. You could take a cab but that would be pricey considering you're staying downtown and would be traveling to the far southwest side.

                    Good luck!

                      • Taking test on computer

                        Hi Folks, I just started testing for police departments back in january and will be taking the computer test for chicago this saturday. I seen the example of how the test is formatted. How difficult would you rate this exam to other police departments written tests? On the 1 1/2 mile run, does it take place on a quarter mile track? I finally got my self in shape after being 290 pounds for 7 years down to 210. Boy it feels great being able to test without seeing these great oppurtunities pass by. Nice to meet you all.

                            The 1/2 mile run was done on a odd length track. It's literally just an oval in an old factory. I remember we had to do X number of laps, and then another 100 feet or something weird like that. I wrote up a detailed account of it a few pages back somewhere.

                            As an aside, I grew up in Homer Glen, moved to the Northside a few years ago.

After the test, I actually feel like I am in the process finally! I will post my comments on the written tomorrow after the test. I am taking the computerized test.
