I am thinking about possibly doing a lateral transfer to this department. I would like to get some info on it though.

Can anyone tell me what the physical exam is like? I am able to skip the written since I am already a IL certified C/O. How about fire arms? I havent found ANYTHING with them as far as carrying fire arms, on duty or off. Are they allowed to carry off duty? Do they receive SLEP pensions? How is the department to work for?

I talked to the sheriffs assistant and I was told that the constantly will take laterals, so im not worried if they are hiring or not, I just need some info caus their web site doesnt say anything.

ANY info I can get is greatly appreciated.
