The Testing Process:

A written exam, oral interview, C.A.T (Corrections Agility Test), an in-depth application and background investigation, polygraph exam, fingerprints, psychological exam, and full medical exam including a drug-screening test will be performed before being hired.

Written Exam:

This will be conducted in person at a location within the Kendall County Government Campus.  The written exam component for the position of Correctional Deputy is designed to measure the applicant’s proficiency in the following areas:

  • Inductive Reasoning
  • Deductive Reasoning
  • Reading Comprehension
  • County Accuracy

A grade of 70% or higher is necessary for the applicant to pass and continue with the testing process.

Oral Interviews:

Applicant will be scheduled for an interview and must pass in order to continue with the testing process.

C.A.T. Test (Corrections Agility Test):

The Kendall County Sheriff’s Office C.A.T. test is loosely based on the IL Law Enforcement Training and Standards Board P.O.W.E.R Test.  After an applicant has successfully passed the oral interview the applicant has one of two options: 1) provide a copy of successfully passing the P.O.W.E.R. test dated between June 1, 2021 and February 1, 2022 or 2) schedule a date and time to take the C.A.T. test at the Kendall County Sheriff’s Office.

The Corrections Agility Test is comprised of:

  • Sit and Reach – 14
  • 1 Minute Sit Ups – 24
  • 1 Mile Run – 12 minutes or less
  • Maximum Bench Press
    • 50% of body weight for females
    • 70% of body weight for males

After the applicant has successfully passed the written exam, oral interview, and corrections agility test the applicant will be placed on a certified list of applicants.  Once certified the applicant will be on the list until a position is available at which time the applicant will finish the testing process.  The eligibility list will be good for 18 months from the date of certification.

There is a $20.00 non-refundable filing fee payable by personal check, cash, or credit card due at the time of signing up for the test.  Testing sign-up and fee must be completed and returned to the Kendall County Sheriff’s Office by 10am, Monday, December 20, 2021.  You will be contacted one week prior to your chosen test date with reporting instructions and location.

The information collected at the time of payment is all that will be required at this time. An application will NOT be provided at time of payment. A formal application will be provided upon passing the mandatory exams.

Testing sign-ups are available at the Kendall County Public Safety Center, 1102 Cornell Lane, Yorkville, IL 60560 between the hours of 8:00am and 4:30pm M-F OR may be paid for online at:
