The SAFE-T Act requires the Board to establish statewide standards for minimum standards regarding regular mental health screenings for probationary and permanent police officers. The Board recently passed a preliminary version of these standards for public review before revisiting these at the next board meeting. Please click here to review these standards.

We are happy to announce that the City of Bloomington has graciously allowed ILETSB to use its municipal board room to host our upcoming meetings. Due to the distancing measures still in place, this meeting will be conducted via WebEx and all board members will be a sent an invite link in the upcoming days. A phone number will be made available for members of the public wishing to listen to the proceedings. At this time, we plan to have the Curriculum meeting at 9am on Thursday, June 11th and the Full Quarterly Meeting at 10am that same day. Phone lines will open 30 minutes in advance for each meeting. Anyone seeking to make a public comment is asked to do so in writing to this address: email@example.com. Any comments received before the meeting will be reviewed by the Chairman and reflected in the record.
While the Open Meetings Act remains in place during this period, the provision requiring a physical quorum has been temporarily suspended. With that, we will proceed as normal and follow all rules and protocols pertinent to the business of the Board. However, we ask that Board members and the public take advantage of the distancing accommodation and participate remotely. Board staff will be available to assist anyone needing assistance in this area and we ask that any technical questions be directed to: PTB.EDI@illinois.gov
Pursuant to 50 ILCS 706/10-25 each law enforcement agency that utilizes body worn cameras must provide a report to the Board by May 1 of each year indicating the number of cameras in use, the number of officers who have used body worn cameras, technical issues encountered with the use of such cameras and the review process used by supervisors. For each instance in which a body camera was used in a prosecution, the agency must indicate the date, time, location, offense and charging date. In an effort to simplify the collection of this data, ILETSB requests that this data be provided on the attached chart. Completed reports for the 2019 calendar year, including the accompanying chart, can be emailed to Jennifer Wooldridge at firstname.lastname@example.org 041b061a72
