    They sound fairly short handed on the net, at least on midnites. If you're certified, you should probably expect to hear something soon. I saw they had an ad for entry level, can't think of the last time I saw them give a test.

    Fairly busy for a small town of about 8000. Borders Chicago on the far southside near 127th & Halsted & to the north & northwest. They get some Chicago spillover. A lot of losers commit their crimes in the area & flee on I-57. Also borders Blue Island to the west & south.

    The town has a ton of slightly lower income apartment complexes & a string of disgusting motels on Ashland between Vermont & 127th, they get called there all the time. They have a club/bar on Ashland right next to Chicago which attracts riff raff. They also have some fairly newer business crammed in along 127th. Tons of gas stations with problem subjects loitering, etc & it seems like there are disturbances every night at the McDonalds.

    Decent place to go if you want to stay kinda busy & not just take barking dog calls. I think they top out in the mid 80's after about 8 years. Just like the advice I gave those interested in Harvey: learn the job, get experience, stay out of trouble on/off duty & stay or move on somewhere else. Don't let non-coppers discourage you about certain agencies.

      They use to always be on the blueline looking for laterals.
