Application Deadline Extended
Anyone want to guess the number of applicants they've gotten that would require them to extend the deadline an extra 30 days?
- The Chicago Police Department is extending the time period within which potential applicants may apply to join the police department.
Applications are being accepted now through Sunday, January 16. A written exam will be administered the weekend of April 16, 2016 for those who applied.
A special focus is being placed on encouraging more minority participation in the written exam and building diversity in police ranks. The city is also reaching out to military veterans and Chicago Public School graduates to ensure that a portion of recruit classes meet these criteria.
There seems to be no dearth of people who can tell us how to do the job, but not too many stepping up to actually do it. That would actually take some guts. But maybe it's for the better - how many unemployed liberal art majors could we possible hire?
