The city of Chicago has awarded a big contract to a third party to administer tests for entry-level law enforcement jobs in Chicago.
CPS Human Resource Services (CPS) has been awarded a contract from the City of Chicago, Illinois to administer a written exam for entry-level police officers. The City estimates up to 30,000 people may test for roughly 2000 positions, which are the result of a two-year hiring slowdown. The exam is expected to be held on December 11, 2010 at McCormick Place in Chicago.
“We are committed to meeting the highest professional standards of quality and test integrity”
“We are committed to meeting the highest professional standards of quality and test integrity,” said Jerry Greenwell, chief executive officer of CPS. “We were awarded this project because of our expertise and successful track record in large scale exam administrations. Our team members have been selected for their relevant experience and professional maturity in dealing with project environments such as this.”
CPS will also coordinate and conduct military or medical accommodations for any eligible applicants on leave and coordinate and plan future military make-up exams.
