Did you know the School Safety Drill Act requirements change on January 1, 2020 ?
" No later than 90 days after the first day of each school year, schools must conduct at least one law enforcement drill that addresses an active threat or an active shooter within a school building."
Illinois now has its own "Interdiction for the Protection of Children" (IPC) instructors, trained by the Texas Department of Public Safety. The instructors are qualified to teach the Texas developed course, which trains officers to identify and question suspects, during regular patrol stops, who may be trafficking children or involved in child abductions.
Watch the video for more information on the program.
The 2019 Crisis Intervention Team Conference is designed to bring together law enforcement officers, correctional staff CIT trained professionals, community resources, consumers, and other interested stakeholders to discuss CIT program development, best practices, and other relevant information. The conference is June 3-4, 2019, at the Naperville Embassy Suites.
The IELTSB Executive Institute has worked with the 9-1-1 Administrator to offer the mandated course Telecommunicators – Trauma Informed Response to Sexual Assault/Abuse through its Online Learning Network
Just a friendly reminder- Each law enforcement agency that utilizes body worn cameras must provide a report to the I.L.E.T.S.B. by May 1 of each year. This ILCS mandate applies to all agencies in Illinois and is not based upon an agency receiving a camera grant for purchasing the system. ALL agencies using Body worn cameras must send in a report.
First time this training will be offered in Illinois! -In 2009 the IPC program was implemented in Texas to teach law enforcement officers how to recognize indicators of at-risk and endangered children who don't necessarily exhibit obvious signs of abuse. As a result of receiving this specialized and targeted training, law enforcement officers can more readily identify and rescue children, and arrest suspects. Between 2009 and February 2018 Texas state troopers have made 341 rescues attributed to this training.
