    Nicb is being lazy....that topic has been covered 100 times over. All you gotta do is search and read. I believe that's the reason for the comment

    Kinda why I stopped posting on this site. Too much ego and not enough help.

    To my knowledge, yes you may carry off duty but arrest powers are limited to forcible felonies. Could be wrong. Never worked for CCSD

    I have heard that a cook county corrections officer can carry off duty and has powers of arrest...how true is this?

    Gotcha. Yea, I remember those kind of talks as well. Too bad our very own department castrates what we really ought to be. It's time for change both on with the Sheriff and with the President of the Cook County board.
    Oh yeah!!! We need change. In a BIG BIG way.

    Yeah. Sorry. Wasn't very clear in my post that this was while I was in the academy as a recruit. His little speech was intended to psych us up for when we graduated and received our credentials.

    Are you talking about the CCDOC? Um... because if so.. we already are "badge carrying, pistol toting members of the LE community."

    *confused*

    This is a kinder, gentler academy than it was 5-6 years ago. I believe the academy is now "hands off" for the Instructors. I won't go into specifics but they wanted to train more "Jailguards" back then rather than Corrections Officers. They also have a class about customer service. IAD also comes in and tells everyone how they are really great guys and how to keep a little notebook in your pocket. I just got back from In-Service Training and I was disgusted.

That same jagoff just wrote me up about 2 months ago. I beat it through the union grievance process though.

    They have their own academy, held at Morriane Valley. 14 weeks long, lots of PT and classroom time. If you're coming from a non-military background get ready for a bit of a rude awakening the first weeks there.

    And do listen to the veterans during your field tours of the jail. And also keep in mind that the bulk of the people at the academy are mostly all court services people and have never even worked a tier.

    When you go and they suggest you don't listen to the vets, disregard. Many more vets will give you straight advice and steer you right than the other way around. PAY ATTENTION to report writing! It's probably the single most important thing you'll learn in a class....it can save your *** or get you fired, depending on your pen.

    Cook County has their own corrections academy. The academy is 14 weeks I believe (10 weeks when I was there). I didn't have any field training and was sort of thrown on a tier. Things could have changed since I was their though.
