Want to Ask ILETSB questions directly?

Director's Corner

It is Director Fischer’s hope that this direct contact with his office will help eliminate the “rumor mill” and will help facilitate open and effective communication between the Board office and the law enforcement community across the State of Illinois.

You may use this form to ask Director Fischer a question, obtain clarification on a Board-related topic, express a concern, or submit a request. All submissions will go straight to the Director’s office, and you will receive an accurate response, in a timely manner.

Any agency-specific questions will be answered privately. However, if a general question is asked, and the answer may be beneficial to other agencies using this site, the response will be sent to the individual asking the question, and also posted as an announcement on the front page.

Please note that any submission which constitutes a FOIA request will be treated as such, and the response will come from our FOIA Officer within 5 business days.

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.
