    I heard the Cook County Corrections test was vastly different than the POWER test.

    When you take the fitness test for C/O what are they I have no clue, unless they are the same for an officer


    .98% of weight bench
    36 situps
    16 inch sit and reach
    1.5 mile run


    ???

    If you want to be a road Deputy, obviously Corrections would not make you happy anywhere. I hope you find a spot somewhere. Most Chicago Officers I know love thier jobs so I would give them a shot. I have a few years on the job and have proven to always be a first responder so my details are now pretty decent. I guess that is why my opinion of CCDOC is pretty decent. There was a hiring freeze for awhile and that is probably why you did not get called. That changed with a Federal Court order advising the Department that they had to hire additional staff. they now can't hire fast enough.

It was not a "hands off"Academy like it is now. I'm sure you have heard that over and over.
    I you worked in max, 6 would seem quite. I agree however that no matter where you work they can all be tough.

    Thanks for somem of the info. I have some "juice" to get on, but I REALLY do not want to start in corrections in Cook County. I work corrections now, and would just say screw it and apply with CPD and work here till I get it before I would do corrections for Cook County. Its a good job dont get me wrong, but Ive seen what its like, and wouldnt wanna be a C/O there. Specialy Division 6, which is where I know they would throw me, caus Im a big guy.

    My only problem is I need to get in a lil better shape before I get in for the CPD testing, and I need to finish my college, still got about a year and a half left.

    Looks like im stuck here for right now.
    Size has nothing to do with where you get assigned. Also, there are worse divisions than division 6.

    Hello

    Division 6 is medium security and it's not all that quiet. Division 2 is where you want to go if you want it easy. The academy for corrections was tough. I think it's a little harder that courts from what I heard.

    It is all the same testing procedure for Courts and Corrections. The academies are different. Division 6 is where alot of people want to go. Its pretty quiet. 10 and 11 are max. 9 is max and where they send all the problem children.

    Is the facility at 26th and Cal in division 6? I'm a big guy too...they would probably put me there...

    Just curious as to what reasons in specific would deter you from CCDOC? Besides the obvious...how do you like workin gin corrections in general?

    Thanks for all the great info guys!
