Geneva to revise testing

GENEVA —  Police Chief Dan Dudik, City Manager and former Geneva police chief Jim Pearson and the city’s Civil Service Commission are working to establish a police officer eligibility list and civil service test.

“The city of Geneva has its own ordinance for the civil service test for the position of full time police officer,” Dudik said. “This establishes the civil service process and establishes an eligibility list for applicants.”

Dudik said city administrators will use the list to choose potential candidates for future open full time positions within the police department.

“Applicants who are chosen from that list will have the opportunity to undergo further testing for the eligibility of police officer,” he said.

Pearson said the city is revisiting current and proposed ordinances that would allow the Civil Service Commission and appointing authority more options in the testing process and the payment of fees.

Anyone can take the civil service test, though applicants must complete police training by the time of their hiring, Dudik said.

“People how have not completed their police training yet can still apply,” he said.

The test includes a written, oral and physical test, he said.

Dudik said he expects Geneva City Council to approve the proposed modifications to the civil service test ordinances on Feb. 25 and then the Civil Service Commission is expected to announce testing dates in March.
