With all of the mandated training requirements placed upon agencies this year, MTU1 is reminding officers there is an on-line method to acquire hours for your Lead Homicide Certification while sitting in front of your computer.

Active Illinois law enforcement officers may register for an account with the Online Learning Network, a cost-free resource for online training. Please contact the Executive Institute by calling 309-298- 2646, or through their website (

The approved LHI in-service courses are:

Case Prep and Courtroom Testimony 3 hours
