      I received a letter from the commission saying they extended it to Nov 2008 I believe.

        Huh...I am not sure if that is correct. Per ILCS, the list should only be valid for a full 24 months. Does a commission have the power to extend the list as they wish? If so, why doesn't every department practice this?

            More probably don't do it because if it is an active list that is being hired from, usually the applicants by the end of the list are garbage. If it is a decent sized list and the bottom of it is getting reached, I'm not saying that there can't be some good people coming from it, but usually it is pretty scary. From there it is best to just start fresh.

              That is very true. I was hired at the top of a new list. The people hired right before me were from the bottom of the old list. None of them made it through FTO period. The FTO's from my department were complaining when they had to train the bottom of the list people.

                  At the January meeting for the Police and Fire Board, they appointed three officers and one as a conditional hire. They started with number 50, and ended up at number 66 to be up next for consideration. HOPEFULLY, if they hire 2 or 3 more in February I will know something.

                        Two patrol officers just retired. They SHOULD hire to replace them. We will see. Good luck to you and tell our mutual friend to call me when he gets a chance.
