Civilian Positions

A police department is much more than police officers! The Park Forest Police Department is budgeted for 5 full-time records clerks, one full-time administrative assistant, one full-time maintenance supervisor, and part-time positions in the Records Division, as well as two part-time community service officers. The Police Department also employs seasonal employees as crossing guards and Police Athletic Activity Center counselors. Please check the Village of Park Forest “Employment” link for job opportunities!

Like police officers, candidates for non-sworn positions must be able to pass a rigorous background check.

As of November 12, 2020, we are looking for a part time Community Service Officer! Please read the job posting here and find the application here. Applications will be accepted until 4:00 pm, Tuesday, December 1, 2020.  Completed applications can be submitted at Village Hall, 350 Victory Drive, attention to Human Resource Director, Denyse Carreras.
