The testing process for a Patrol Deputy and/or Correctional Deputy for the Kendall County Sheriff’s Office is as follows:

A few weeks before a testing process will begin, we will advertise in local papers.

The first step in the process will be to complete an application. There will also be a twenty-five (25) dollar filing fee for each position applied for that must be turned in with the application.

When you turn in your application and filing fee you will be given information regarding the physical agility test, and you will need to bring picture identification, preferably your driver’s license. Providing you pass the agility testing, you will be given instructions at the physical agility, for the written examination.

Providing you successfully complete the written examination, an eligibility list will be established. This list is good for eighteen (18) months from the date of the written exam.

You will then be called for an oral interview. Those that pass the interview will then go to the next phase of the testing process, which would be an extensive background investigation.

The background investigation is an important part of the testing process and needs to be filled out accurately and honestly. This background packet is used by the Sheriff’s Office to determine if your background permits you to work for this office. Along with this packet, please attach photocopies of personal documents such as your Birth Certificate, Social Security Card, Drivers License, Military DD214, School Transcripts, Specialized Training Certificates, and Naturalization Papers if applicable. After the background investigation, a second interview may take place.

When the Sheriff’s Office is ready to offer you a position, you will be called and instructed where to report for psychological and medical examinations. Upon successful completion of those examinations, you will be given a hire date and will begin your career with the Kendall County Sheriff’s Office.

If the Sheriff’s Office is not currently accepting applications and you would like to participate in the testing process you can complete a “preliminary application”. A preliminary application is a short form that asks for basic information, such as your full name, address, telephone number, etc. You may obtain a preliminary application by coming into the Sheriff’s Office during regular business hours, filling it out online, or if you live out of state, you may contact the Human Resource Manager for specific instructions at (630) 553-7500 extension 1115. You may fill out a preliminary application at any time.
When you turn in a preliminary application, it will be kept on file until the Sheriff’s Office announces they will be hiring. You will then be notified by mail that the Sheriff’s Office is hiring for Patrol and/or Corrections and it is up to you to fill out the appropriate application.

The Kendall County Sheriff’s Office is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
