Or will I be getting it the week I go in to do paperwork before academy starts.....can you tell Im so eager to have a star lol

    This post is a good reason NOT to hand out badges and creds until AFTER the academy...

    Like chitown said every department does it differently. Some will give it to you when sworn in, after you pass the state exam, complete the academy etc. I remember being in metro and seeing other officers from different suburbs already having their stars, not to mention department squads to take to the academy.

    In reality, places do it differently. Some do it as soon as your sworn in, some at the Village Hall Board meeting, some, just prior to you starting the academy, some while you are in the academy after passing range, some at graduation. One place I worked at, we got ours 5 minutes after the village clerk swore us in outside her office in the hallway. In Chicago, we got ours after the 10th week.
