How do I apply for a Police Officer Position?
Every 2 years the Fire and Police Commission open the application process for the Police Department. The City of East Moline must follow Illinois State Statue;s (Public Act 098-0760 Sec. 5 The Illinois Municipal Code) which requires the city to create an eligibility list which is active for 2 years. When the Police Department has an opening, they must select candidates from the eligibility list.

Candidates who have completed an application and submitted it to the city, must attend an physical agility pass/fail test. For those who pass the agility test, a written test follows. Scores from the written test are compiled to form a list. Preference points are available according to Illinois State statues.
