    Doolan615 Nope. I've been waiting myself. I went to the interview about 3 weeks ago. Haven't head anything. I've been checking my mail too, got nothing. Not sure what's going on

              Keep applying to departments. One department will want you. You'll get somewhere eventually. However, a lot of people I know were willing to move to Chicago like myself to receive an opportunity. The main thing is to get certified as an officer and go through an academy. Then, your options open up a lot more in the future. Also, CPD does have the best benefits though when it comes down to it. In fact, you receive more training in CPD when compared to suburbs. There's a lot the public doesn't know about their benefits, and even if you didn't like police work. You could always take the Firefighter test and transfer your pension to CFD. My brother is CFD and i'm now CPD. He knows navy seals who were CPD and then became CFD.

                CPD gets more training than the burbs!?!? That really is laughable. I would bet the average burb cop's post academy training exceeded the average CPD copper, same time on the job any day. I had training in patrol that friends on teams in Area 2 didn't have. No politics, no wait line...just me saying yeah I wanna go.

                It amazes me how the egos come flying out when people get offended by one comment. Especially when the post initially was only to be supportive to others to have options.

                Doolan615 that's understandable I guess they need to sort out a budget

              Not exactly true about CPD getting more training when compared to suburbs. That is not always an apples to apples comparison. Please don't be one of those people who thinks that CPD is the end all be all of policing.

                I surely hope you do keep applying to other departments. Applying to more departments will increase your chances of getting hired.

                Chicago gets more training with scenarios and a bit more tactical training because the academy is around six months. The Metro classes still do TTU and they have the same classes the CPD classes do. Said suburb can also elect to have additional training for their guys like BreathOp training and what not. Other than that, CPD are not walking gods on the street because their patch says Chicago...

                Source, worked for CPD, was trained at CPD and now works for a suburb...
