The Illinois Law Enforcement Training & Standards Board (I.L.E.T.S.B.) has a new webpage dedicated to the Canine Compliance Program

Drug Detection Canine Compliance Program

Disclaimer

  • The Intial Training Portion of this page takes effect JANUARY 1, 2020.
  • The Annual Requalification Process is currently live, as of JANUARY 1, 2019.

In 2012, the Police Training Act was amended to require drug detection canine teams to be trained by programs that meet the minimum certification requirements set by the Board:

(50 ILCS 705/10.12)

Sec. 10.12. Police dog training standards.  Beginning July 1, 2012, all police dogs used by State and local law enforcement agencies for drug enforcement purposes pursuant to the Cannabis Control Act (720 ILCS 550/), the Illinois Controlled Substances Act (720 ILCS 570/), and the Methamphetamine Control and Community Protection Act (720 ILCS 646/) shall be trained by programs that meet the minimum certification requirements set by the Board.

(Source: P.A. 97-469, eff. 7-1-12.)

 

The Board has continued to update and improve the drug detection canine compliance program and as a result, new statewide standards have been implemented.
