  • Plainfield Police Dept.

    Well Plainfield is hiring. Just a thread for those who are seeking new employment or for those migrate cops who like to switch departments every 3 or 4 years

    Here it is in a cut down version. Click on O.Com's 20 newest posted jobs for the rest.

    The Plainfield Metropolitan Police Department is once again seeking highly qualified candidates for the position of full-time police officers.
    Our recruitment process currently has four (4) to seven (7) full-time openings for 2007-2008.

    We are still a small town community with about 23,000 residents and have a force of 45 full-time officers and 10 reserve officers.

    The Town of Plainfield offers an employment package of $33,670 for probationary officers, which increases to $36,998 for second-class officers and $43,420 for first-class patrol officers.

    The town also offers a competitive benefits package that includes medical, dental and vision insurance. The department offers a take-home car program for all full-time officers who are in compliance with the residency policy.

    Deadline for application in the current process is June 25, 2007 by 5:00 p.m. All applications received after that date will be kept on file for one (1) year and destroyed at that time unless the application is updated and the applicant requests that the application be kept one more year.

    The written and agility test will be given on Saturday, June 30, 2007 at 8:00 a.m. at the Plainfield High School.

      There may be a better explanation out there, but I believe that the common (not dictionary) definition of metropolitan is of a larger area containing a city and it's immediate vicinity. For example, a school district near where I grew up was named ****** Metropolitan School District despite the fact that it included most of a town of ~8,000 and a small amount of the surrounding area.

      So to me, the Department's moniker would mean that they cover the City of Plainfield and some of the areas directly adjacent.

        I remember when they included "metro" in their title. I assumed it was for the same reason you cited. A metropolis is generally a community’s hub of commerce, employment, schools, etc. that serves its surrounding suburban areas. The term doesn’t necessarily imply a heavily populated region.

              Everyone that has went to the Academy through this department gets r***ed on at ILEA. They blast us about being a "METRO" and there only being 6 people on the department. You probably know what department I'm talking about 10-6, but if ya don't PM me.

                  The reason some departments use the word "Metropolitan" in their titles is because of state statue. If they are governed by a board of police commissioners, and not a Board of Public Words and Safety, that police commission (by definition) is a board of "Metropolitan Police Commissioners." That's why some town's use this moniker.

                  No charge for that information.

                        Begin Geek Mode.
                        Alright, I actually researched the word "Metropolitan." It's root words are Greek for "Mother City" and according to The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Edition it means: adj.

                        Of, relating to, or characteristic of a major city: crowded metropolitan streets; a metropolitan newspaper.
                        Of or constituting a large city or urbanized area, including adjacent suburbs and towns: the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area; a metropolitan county.
                        Of, relating to, or constituting the home territory of an imperial or colonial state.
                        Of or relating to an ecclesiastical metropolitan.

                        End Geek Mode.
