The Initial Eligibility Register of candidates will be established based on the written test score. A grade of Sixty-five percent (65%) or better is required to be placed on the Initial Eligibility Register, in rank order of excellence. Each applicant candidate achieving the minimum score or better will be emailed or mailed a copy of the initial eligibility register advising the candidate he/she qualified. Veterans, sworn Police Officers, and applicants with Associates or B.S. degrees in Law Enforcement or Criminal Justice then may apply for preference points, within ten (10) days of the posting date of the Initial Eligibility Register. Preference points, as per Illinois Compiled State Statues, may be claimed by an applicant who has served in the military for one year and has an honorable discharge, meets the education criteria above, or is currently serving or having served as a sworn Police Officer in an Illinois community. A total of five (5) points, to improve his/her position on the Primary Eligibility Register, can be exercised by the applicant.


In addition to the above preference points the following may be requested if you qualify; any applicant currently serving as a Norridge Police Department Auxiliary Police Officer for a minimum of one year at the time of application and testing is eligible to claim preference points. These preference points are in addition to the above Education/Military preference points. Auxiliary Officer points are awarded for continuous service only. NPD Auxiliary Police Officer preference points can be applied for as follows; 1 point for 12-24 months of continuous service, 2 points for 24-36 months of continuous service, 3 points for anything over 36 months of continuous service.

A final Primary Register of Candidates will be created from the Initial Eligibility Register after combining the written (60%) and oral test (40%) scores and adding qualifying preference points. The Primary Register will be replenished from the remaining Candidates on the Initial Eligibility Register as the Primary Register is exhausted. Both will remain in force for a period of three (3) years from the effective date as is established by the Norridge Board of Fire & Police Commissioners.
