  • Part-Time Certification

    Do any departments with part-time positions in the Chicago area hire people that are not certified and send them to a part-time academy? All the part-time openings I see on the blueline or indeed are looking for people who are certified already.

    What would a non certified LEO do?

    That sounds like a Very Big liability.

      Hardly any. Better off applying full time. Robbins, Phoenix, and Dixmoor u can look into.

        There are two significant factors in hiring only certified people. First, the job can be filled right away, with perhaps minimal OJT specific to the agency or position. Second, hiring uncertified people requires the time and expense of completing the certification program, an expense that some agencies avoid when possible (every department functions under budget constraints).

            The larger depts, both police and sheriff run their own academies, reserve in the evenings after work. There are usually years between reserve academies though.
