"A Trained Officer is an Effective Officer."

A Mobile Team In-Service Training Unit is defined as “an organization formed by a combination of units of local government…to deliver in-service training to local and state law enforcement officers…” The Mobile Team Unit (MTU) is formed through an intergovernmental agreement and typically includes the joint participation of from two, to as many as one hundred, units of local government. It is a not-for-profit governmental entity directed and administered by an advisory board composed of local elected officials, local criminal justice administrators and the Director of the Illinois Law Enforcement Training and Standards Board.

West Central Illinois Criminal Justice Council is a Mobile Team Unit funded through the Illinois Law Enforcement Training and Standards Board.  We conduct law enforcement training utilizing quality, experienced instructors, curriculum and various venues to keep our law enforcement community up-to-date with new training techniques and legislation.  Our goal is to provide an excellence of training to help local law enforcement to better connect and protect their communities and themselves.

Conor's Law - ILETSB Model Policy Available

Posted: 6/7/2018

Conor's Law - ILETSB Model Policy on the Response and Release of Individuals Under the Influence of Drugs or Alcohol: Last year, PA 100-537 was passed requiring the Board to create a model policy to train law enforcement officers on how to respond to individuals who are under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time of an arrest - with special considerations for those under age 21. After researching the general issues, discussions with stakeholders, and an invitation for public comment, we are pleased to share this model policy with the law enforcement community. While law enforcement agencies are not mandated to make any changes under this law, we believe that this model policy stands as an example of how to balance several concerns while maintaining the safety interests of the detainee. This document will be permanently available in the new section of the Board’s website for “Model Policies” under the “Resources” tab.
