    I've heard final list is done...

    They conducted their interviews and published a list that was before preference points, and candidates were given a time frame to submit their documentation for preference points. I believe that the final list reflecting these points has not been published yet.

    Told to me off the record, and from people at Rockford that are directly involved and I trust, no recruit classes are planned at this time. However, the department is down something like 17 personnel from their allowed staffing, so at some point the overtime costs will be more than what it costs to bring new blood in. I'd imagine then you'd see a class put together.

    The feeling I get is that once the chief is given the go ahead to hire, they'll expedite the process and start an academy in like two weeks, before anyone in the city admin has a chance to change their minds...

    I'll have to confirm, but I thought 75 got letters for interviews. I seem to have heard that number thrown around.

    I've heard lots of rumors from guys on the job. Lots of potential retirements, I've heard the next class could be at least 20. Again, just because they need the people doesn't mean the city admin will allow hiring.

    Great folks running the department though. I'm sure the chief will find some way to hire folks.

    I'm not from Rockford, but close enough. They won arbitration which will stop the city administration from trying to close two stations, which would have cut up to 24 positions. That's a positive.

    The city is in bad shape. The latest rumor is that there are not enough reserve apparatus to keep companies in service...

    I wouldn't hold your breath.
