Press Release Date: March 26, 2012    || Archived February 11, 2013

Dozens Express Interest with Agency’s New Veterans Preference Benefit

Gurnee – The Illinois State Police Recruitment Office was one of several agencies that participated in the Illinois Department of Employment Security and the American Legion Veteran’s Job Fair, on Thursday, March 22, 2012.

The Veteran’s Job Fair was held at the Gurnee American Legion, and is part of the state’s commitment to assist qualified Veterans in their search for employment after serving active military duty.  Government agencies and corporate businesses were invited to participate to promote job and career opportunities, specifically for Veterans.

Earlier this year, Governor Pat Quinn and Illinois State Director Hiram Grau announced plans to allow Veterans who have been honorably discharged, and who have been awarded an Afghan or Iraqi campaign medal by the military or naval services of the United States, deemed to have met the collegiate educational requirements when applying to become an Illinois State Police Trooper.

“This law provides our soldiers with the ability to apply their military service years when applying for a career with the Illinois State Police.They have survived their tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan, so let’s give them the opportunities and tools they need to survive when they return home,” said Illinois State Police Director Hiram Grau.

Grau added that the Agency’s recruitment efforts are already underway, and that ISP recruiters are looking to assist qualified applicants who are seeking a career in law enforcement.
