THESE ARE OVERNIGHT POSITIONS, AS WITH MOST STARTING JOBS IN LAW ENFORCEMENT.

Looking for 10 people for an August 24, 2023, SVCC Police Academy start date.

This list will also be used for a September 4, 2023, PTI Police Academy start date. You will likely be sent to the Police Training Institute (PTI) in Champaign. If sent to PTI, you will arrive each Sunday evening and stay in their Residence Halls until the following Friday, only coming home for weekends. SVCC (Dixon Illinois) will have the same residency requirements.

I wanted to make sure all of you were aware of how to apply for this position. If you follow the link above, it will take you to NIU's Human Resources webpage. You can read the details of the position and click, "Apply for this Job" in the top right corner. While I can answer general questions about the job itself (sent to me via email only), all hiring aspects are coordinated through Human Resources, AFTER you officially apply for the job through the link. Please read the job description thoroughly, as it will answer many questions you might have for me.

For HR related questions, please email:

niuishiringpoliceofficers@niu.edu

Some basics however.... Every aspect of the hiring process requires your physical presence on more than one occasion in DeKalb, Illinois, United States. This cannot be done remotely.

The Physical Fitness Test can be found here:

new-power-test-chart-2023.pdf (illinois.gov)

(Fitness Cards are a plus, but we will also offer the Fitness Test on-site)

It will significantly benefit you to review these standards. We have numerous people fail the fitness test simply because they don't properly prepare for the day. Fitness standards were reduced in December 2022.

The evaluation process for those given a conditional offer includes:

  • Extensive Criminal History Check
  • Extensive Work History Check
  • Psychological Assessment
  • Physical Exam
  • Drug Screening 

The position will include a 50-mile residency restriction, prior to completing your 12-month probationary period.

We are a 12-hour agency (84 hours every two weeks), so shifts are 7a to 7p and 7p to 7a, which allows for every other weekend to be a 3-day weekend off-duty.

We pay for most duty uniform items and laundry.

It is an armed position, with a department issued firearm, which makes a FOID card mandatory.

New officers almost exclusively get assigned to 7p to 7a.

We are a very diverse department serving a very diverse community. Customer service is of the utmost importance to us.
