      I'm hearing the same about a slow down for a few months as a few of us mentioned. No FPTs in the last 2 weeks is a good indication of that so far. A Metro class (suburban departments) starts Monday because another one is about to be done soon. Hang in there in the meantime!

  • Damn, really hope they don’t slow down the hiring process.

      The 2019 PDF for the future of CPD states they anticipate to hire 500 officers in 2019. So hopefully they offer another written exam in May of 2019 like they have been doing the past two years (2 a year one in winter one in summer). I’m sure they will give another written exam in 2019. Based on the fact when they gave the written exam in 2013 12,000 people passed the exam when it used to cost $35 an application but when they gave the last time exam on May 2018 (free application) only 3,900 passed the exam. So less people are applying. Plus Chicago being the 2nd biggest PD in the US means they will probably offer a test every 1-2 years just to keep with people retiring and being promoted. So after this huge surge to hire people 100-200 officers a year to be hired would probably be the new norm.

      but I could be all wrong plus it depends on the new mayor and all the political BS in the city. But the hiring will slow down. According to that 2019 PDF for CPD they are at 13,600 officers which is fully staffed I believe. So who knows. Just going to have to wait and see

        2019 PDF? Is that an acronym or a document you're referring to?

          This gives me hope. Took my poly on 12/6 and haven't heard anything yet. Keeping my fingers crossed.

          Yeah no problem guys. Just keep preparing physically, mentally and financially (can't stress saving as much as you can if possible). You'll do the POWER Test 3 more times in the academy and it doesn't matter if its 15 degrees like today.

      • I wonder if anyone from the May 2018 exam has been hired yet. Took my poly 11/3 and still have not heard anything back yet. The examiner said my charts looked good so that's a positive. I made the final eligibility list for Cicero and Evergreen Park so if I can make it on a suburb list then I'm sure I can get on with the city, the department I really want to be with.

          Yeah someone in the 18-11 (NOV) class posted their timeline in the other thread. That's good you made those lists so good job on that. From the final eligibility list generally once they reach your name there are a few some steps. They will contact you for background, poly, psych, medical and academy final POWER test (this is the suburban depts your mentioned).

        Someone posted a timeline in the wrong thread who got hired from this exam.

        I don’t think there was a January academy which can maybe explain the delay. I took my Poly 12/7 and nothing yet as well. Hopefully no news is good news for the group of us waiting.

          There was a January academy but the class was smaller than usual

      • If the next academy class is 2/18. When is a realistic time for the final power date?

          Okay well there's your answer and jisho1983 I wouldn't be surprised if there is another one for February. Also you could get invited to that one very last minute. It happens all the time.

          Thanks southpaw1. I didn't think the wait/process would be this mentally tasking. At times it's been hard to keep going because I want it so bad like others here. I just have to keep trusting the process and telling myself it will happen when it's supposed to happen.

          Yeah jisho1983 know that all to well. Trust me it's a great feeling to see the struggle and hard work payoff with a job offer but like you said you gotta trust the process and be patient. Good luck.

      • Happy to see some movement for some of you. Passed my poly, havent heard back yet. fingers crossed

          When’d you take yours?

      • If you pass the poly, how are you notified, by email, letter or phone? Also if you fail the poly do you get notified? My examiner said my charts looked good so I'm assuming I passed the poly but this wait is killing me mentally.

          1- if you pass the poly that's meaning you'll take FPT as next step. I've read the old forums some of them just got e-mail for FPT invitation some of them got a call from their BI and then got e-mail.

          2- they don't call you for poly DQ. you'll get a DQ letter by mail but it takes very long time.

          I took poly on June 2018 and never heard back so i assume letter is on the way for me but they say it may even take a year because it comes from City Hall.

          My Poly examiner told me someone else reviews the charts that he couldn’t tell me whether or not I passed (I never asked - he said that unprompted).. He walked me out and asked me what the next step was or if I had my interview with my BI yet. My poly went pretty easily other than a tiny interrogation at the end where I didn’t change my answer. He was a nice guy. But, again, I wasn’t told whether or not I passed. I really wish I knew.

      • I took my psych and medical in June which I unfortunately was found unsuitable but passed on the appeal. Have my FTP coming up on Jan 19 and was wondering if someone knows if I will have to do the medical again? In the email I received from HR it stated, “disregard psych notice. You have passed your psych and medical.” So just wondering if they will make me do another medical with them cause I heard that medicals are good up to a year but I do not know how accurate that information is?

            • Does anyone know the name of the white kind of older lady officer that is at like all the POWER tests and the process the following day? She’s extremely nice and would hand out ties to candidates that may have forgotten them. I’m trying to get into contact with her so if anyone can help, I’d appreciate it!!!

                Call the CPD HR number on your forms. Probably too late today but chances are they will figure out who it is or she might answer. I wouldn't post the name publicly but anyone hired in the last several years knows who you are talking about haha.
