    Joliet PD

    Hey, did anyone on here get the poly/psych/background done yet? Just curious where you are at if you did. I hear a RUMOR that 3-4 will be hired to go to PTI in January '07.

    The Police and Fire meeting was held on 9-11-07. The board had the approval to hire one officer. Numbers 43-48 were all rejected. They accepted number 49 with a start date of 12-31-07.

    I received a letter in the mail Friday informing me that the next group, which I am in, is being sent for testing. Therefore, I need to complete the polygraph and psychological. The background will follow shortly after. I am still not sure if this phase of hiring is for this year or next. I believe the police and fire board should be down to number 75 on the list for people being sent for the testing. If anyone else has heard any information please let me know. Thank you.

    I called the police and fire board once again for those of us who are still waiting to hear something. I was advised that they are currently on number 45. Joliet has hired all that they are budgeted for this fiscal year. The only additions would be for retirements at this time. It has not been approved yet, however it looks like this list is going to be extended for an additional year.

    I called the police and fire board last week. I was told that eight people were hired, and the next person up on the list for consideration would be #35. I have not heard any information regarding how many more will be hired this year. Although, I have heard that there may be one or two new sectors being created which would boost manpower. Just an update for those of us who are still waiting.

    I think thats on a department by department bases for Sgt. requirements.

    I think that's definitely true. No one would ever get respect by just having a mere title unless they act like the title that they've earned.

    Are there educational requirements for Sgt.?

    I wouldn't mind being chief one day, but that will take time to happen. Motivation and the desire to learn is a great tool for anyone. Short term goals are more attainable then long term goals. First you should make a goal to get hired by the a department. get into the academy,(pass the Power test), your next goal should be to learn the materials and skills taught at the academy, Next goal is to pass the exit power test at the academy, and the state test to become a police officer, your next goal should be to pass each phase of your field training. I think you get the picture lockedandloaded. At a large department you have to have patients and wait your turn to even take the test to be a SGT. Goals are nice to have but, realistic goals are even better to have.

    Being the best police officer you can be should be your number 1 priority. Who cares what you make or your career goals are. If you are not respected by your fellow officers when you are just an officer. How much respect do you think you will get when you become a Sgt?

    Maybe people have goals that they want to achieve unlike some!

    And I would not be too thrilled with the shift schedule out there. Being assigned to a relief shift for the first couple of years. Not knowwing what shift you will be on from week to week. On the other hand they seem to have a great group of guys and they do get a ton of calls!!

    Thats also the information I got when I picked up an application. So if thats is wrong then its wrong. I highly doubt that Joliet is paying 80 in base pay when they top out at 62 now. Joliet is in the range of highes salaries but, two towns I tested for just this past mont Glenview and mundeline both top out at 73 in 5 years. To be honest money is not an issue for what departments you should test for. You will never get rich being a police officer.

    why would you even be concern with sgt. salary when it can be 8-10 years before you can even get a chance to be a sgt. in joliet.

    Starting pay 35,623
    after 1 yr. 47,620
    2 years 58,144
    3 years 62,318

    So that's base pay information from Joliet. Now that doesn't have overtime put in their so I can see 80,000 a year. However, You can't expect making 80 a year after the academy or in your first 2 years.
    Just FYI, that info is OLD. The newest contract went into effect in late '05 or early '06. Since then, the pay is much better. And Sgt's start at around $91,000 right now.

    Ouch, I thought they made better money. I think there must be a lot of "hidden" money in the contract casue that is not a good step salary. You get a take home squad BUT you have to live in Joliet, you can keep it.

    The pay scale is in the process of changing. During orientation, I was informed that you would receive:

    $39,300 starting pay
    $52,500 after 1 year
    $67,400 after 4 years

    I realize this isn't a comprehensive list, but this is what I was told. Anyone, please correct me if you have different information.
