Single Parent who wants to become a police officer

by Bobbie
(Chicago)

I was concerned about the hours and shifts referring to the academy and employment after.

I am a single mother on my own raising my daughter. She is currently attending daycare while I work. I was wondering if the CPD recognizes these challenges in potential employees who really want to become police officers. Or do people need to find accommodations.

Do officers get to choose which shifts that they are able to work?

Any additional information would be very much appreciated.

Thank you,
