    commented on a Visitor Message From ChiTownDet
    I lived by 23rd and Leavitt for majority of my life and went to Bridgeport for a bit, then Englewood, and finally Burbank. I am Hispanic and married. I'm not worried about getting a divorce. We have a pretty strong bond and I'm happy with my life. This is definitely something I've always wanted to do....

    I saw that you were from Pilsen. Where abouts? I grew up there back in the 60's- early 70's. So did my parents and grandparents. Lived at 23rd - Bell, then we moved to Cicero. What burb are you in now? One caveat I will give you, though, when I came on, our homeroom instructor at the academy asked the...

    southpaw1 My significant other was not too thrilled at first (I'm 5'1 and 130 lbs) He thought I was too delicate for the job but he's come around. I spoke with my kids about the changes that'll be made in the event that I make it through and they're very for it. My kids grew up in the burbs but me and...

    Ratatatat I'm from Chicago and grew up in Pilsen. I know the city and what it's about. I guess I fall into the First Gens category.

    GangGreen712 9-5 with weekends and holidays off is definitely a dream. I'm ready for this though. I have been for a while but was just waiting until my kids got a bit older. Appreciate the advice.

    Ratatatat I kind of figured my family life would be different, and also knew work times would be unpredictable. I'm used to the half-conscience zombie state (I'm a mom and have worked in Trauma/ER before). Not looking to have each holiday, all weekends, and every birthday off, just wondering what the...

    Haha! Lucky for me I won't fall into that category, partly because I'm a woman and the other is I genuinely love spending time with my family. I will use caution and maintain a balance. Thanks for the advice L-1. Appreciate it!

    I'm pretty sure everyone here began their career as an applicant. I was just looking for some advice from some seasoned professionals ( I thought that was the point of this forum??). I know very well what I'm "getting into", have done a good amount of research and spoke with some retirees....

    I read it 11 times just to be safe. Definitely still going through with it. Hopefully I'll connect with people who are as honest and experienced as ChiTownDet. Thanks.

    Kids are already attending Catholic High School so that won't be much of an issue, but I totally get the culture shock thing. Thanks for the advice though and Congrats on your retirement.

    ared1984 As a mother, I would hope any parent would have these same questions. I was just asking for advice. I know this is what I want. Thanks for the input.

    Same thing I was thinking. They're already really busy with sports/volunteering/school... It's obvious that I won't be home for each birthday and holiday but I'll be happy to know that I can be home for at least one of the three birthdays. Appreciate your input....

    Balancing Work and Home

    Hey Everyone,
    I'm currently a candidate for CPD, and with the hiring process moving along so "quickly", I'm beginning to get a bit nervous regarding how working as a police officer will affect my family life. I knew it'd be different but will it be drastically different? A little background......
