Senator Steans

January 6, 2017

Dear Friends,


As many of you may have heard, the Chicago Police Department is seeking to hire nearly 1,000 police officers as a part of Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s public safety reform. I encourage interested community members who are 18 and older to apply by Jan. 31 for the police entry exam.


The application is free and can be completed on a smart phone, computer or with the help of navigators at libraries and workforce centers across the city. The police entry exam will be given in early April.


Please see below for a list of upcoming events where Chicago police officers and human resources staff will be available to answer questions and assist residents with their applications. The first event is Saturday, Jan. 7 from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. at 1000 E. 87th St. There will be two Training Academy open houses on Jan. 14 and Jan. 28. Additionally, staff are available to answer questions about the application on social media on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
