    Where do I begin?

    Do you think we all started out with Law Enforcement jobs? Guess again. Go out to Phoenix and don't look back! If you can get a law enforcement job in 3 months from Phoenix go get it. Believe it or not Chicago will survive without you. Phoenix is a good area.

    Go out there and pursue your dreams. Don't put your life in limbo because if you really can get this job in Phoenix in three months like it's a sure thing, you are a fool to sit here and wait for a position that you may or MAY NOT get.

    Go with what you know for sure. Don't wait for this job to hire you, not make it, and then become bitter because you had your chance in Phoenix and didn't take it.

    Go with Phoenix, in three months you will have a job and probably will never look back.

    Good Luck.

      Hurry Up And Wait

      YOu can always apply with the St. Louis County PD. We are hiring and it only takes 4 or 5 months to get hired. We have a force of over 700 officers. Plus Chicago is only about 4 1/2 hours away!

          Although brutally honest, SeVere is right. Take whatever opportunity comes across and if your heart's really with CPD, then you'll take it if the opportunity ever comes.

            that seems simple, however just taking whatever comes first is not always a good idea either. to make it more complicated, having a 3+ year relationship doesnt help the decision making either.

                like SeVere said, if you have an opportunity with phoenix right now - and if that's your second option next to CPD -, then take it, b/c nothing is guaranteed with CPD no matter how qualified you think you are

                    I agree with SeVere and copdog. If you truly want Chicago PD and nothing else, than bite your lip and stick through the process to see if you are hired. If all you want is a job as some of your posts mention, then go down to Phoenix and start working. It is all about what YOU want, and what you are willing to go through and do. To blame the City is ridiculous; heck, they might not even hire you!

                    Just wanted to get my .02 in there.

                      Sorry to bump a year-old thread, but has CPD actually used MySpace during the Background Investigation or Interview?
