The application period for Lateral Entry police officers has ended. Below is some information on our lateral entry requirements.
Applicants for lateral appointment to the position of Police Officer must meet the following minimum qualifications and requirements at the time of application:
Lateral Entry Eligibility List:
An initial lateral entry eligibility list will be created from qualified applicants that submit the required application materials. Applications will be accepted from September 4th, 2018 until 1800 hours on September 24th, 2018. Placement on any lateral entry eligibility list shall be based upon the relative excellence of the applicants.
In the event that pre-screening identifies applicants who have certain knowledge, skills and abilities that make those applicants more desirable for the position sought to be filled, the Village of Glen Carbon Police Commission may interview those applicants only for consideration.
Credible Service Time:
Credible service time with regard to the police pension system is controlled by law, specifically but not limited to the portability clause of Article 3 of the Illinois Pension Code, and requires the candidate to pay the “true cost” for the transfer of service time, which is actuarially determined, into the pension system.
