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.
