    Can someone tell me why Chicago is......

    Opening up another exam when they have 8,000 plus candidates in a pool as it is? That should be enough bodies for 5 years one would think.....

    Always something new to learn from you! I couldn't make any sense of that one...

    That fee doesn't even cover the testing for one person who doesn't make it through. Application fees aren't money makers. They just soften the blow..

    Dispatchers, years ago, at the old COS (Communications Operations Section) were called "Squad Operators."

    I know why, but I'm confused by why he's calling me squad?!

    Residency, failing to maintain personal physical fitness and making bad choices in life for starters.

    First a lot of people take the test just to take it and then never even go to the first power test. Then there's those who fail the power test, fail the drug test, have a been arrested, can't pass the psych or poly test. Some people find other jobs, some have a change of heart, some are simply too lazy to finish the required paperwork. Not everyone applying is meant to be the police, yet some still manage to get hired. I personally know probably 10 people who took the written test and never got hired due to one of the reasons above.

    Are you arguing with yourself?

    On a good day, it would be closer to 600 or less.
