CPD alters age requirement for exam application

November 3, 2010 (CHICAGO)

The new rule, announced last week, requires Chicago Police officers to be at least 25 years old at the time of application. With this revision, recruits need only be 21 to apply, but the minimum age at the time of employment remains 25.

There is an exemption for applicants under age 25 with military experience.

Successful applicants under the age of 25 will be added to a referral list until they reach their 25th birthday, according to a CPD press release.
