The Illinois Conservation Police will be starting the testing process for Conservation Police Officer Trainees in January.

In order to be eligible to be hired as a Conservation Police Officer Trainee, an applicant must have a Bachelorís Degree or an Associateís Degree and be currently employed as a full-time police officer with an agency for the past three consecutive years.  An exemption to the collegiate education requirement is allowed for persons who have been honorably discharged from the United States Armed Forces with one of the following service medals, or are active members of the Illinois National Guard or a reserve component of the United States Armed Forces and while serving honorably during active duty deployment received one of the following medals:

Since the testing date is so quickly approaching, applicants are encouraged to keep a copy of the CMS-100 and be ready to bring it to the testing center during the testing dates to take the test.  CMS will then review the applications after the exam and send the grades to the qualified applicants at a later time.  Veterans hoping to get the exemption should contact Veterans Outreach Program as soon as possible at (217)-524-1313 to get their status verified in order to take the exam.
