    I know that 'most' police departments require a 'mental' part to the test, however, it doesn't look like Bolingbrook does...obviously!

    Gee they pay really well for new police officers! It's really too bad all police officers aren't paid that well! More and more they are wanting people with college degrees. You get what you pay for!

    I guess we shouldn't let one bad apple (DREW) spoil the whole bunch.

    --->>>Wondering IF IF they are not sure just how many policemen might be involved in non ethical activities. They must have made a list of upcoming needs, based on what factors? Just normal transient turnover or increased budgets for increased crime statistics, OR. A two year list seems like a lot to me, but I have no basis for thinking that. ??
