The hiring process for most departments is usually the same and is as follows (usually in this order):

1. Complete application for agency.
2. Pass physical exam. Most Illinois departments use the FIT test from the ISP guide lines; however, some departments have their own test such as an obstacle course. You can find the guide lines for the FIT test on the ISP website.
3. Pass written exam
4. Pass Oral exam or multiple Oral exams

After said events the agency then compiles a list of candidates from the scores of the above listed exams. The physical exam is pass/fail. The written and Oral are scored, but the written usually has a passing score.

After the list is made the agency will select candidates in order of the list. Once selected the candidate will take a psychological test and a lie detector test. Some departments have stopped using the lie detector because of budgeting issues. During this same time period the agency conducts a background investigation on the candidate, which is usually quite extensive. Also the department will conduct more direct interviews with the candidate usually done by the background investigator. The end of the testing phase includes a drug test of the candidate.

Good luck

Forgot to mention that most departments will give additional points for having a bachelors degree or for serving in the military. Some departments are starting to require bachelors degrees or military experience. It has been my experience that the top candidates hired usually have one of the two
