NEWS FROM ILETSB:
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 issues and reviewing the policies of other states, the board convened a focus group of stakeholders to weigh-in on our findings and offer suggestions for the policy. Upon the completion of these discussions the Board presents this draft for review and comment. Should you wish to make any comments on this draft, please direct them to email@example.com before May 31, 2018.
Effective March 1, 2018, ILETSB will be accepting electronically submitted Narcotic Detection Canine Certification Report Forms (Initial and Annual) and Lead Homicide Investigator Recertification Form as the primary method of submission. This new protocol will reduce staff time, allow for records to be shared by the entire organization, and most importantly, ensure retention of permanent records. The process for receiving, retaining, and responding to those electronic applications are as follows:
- Law Enforcement Agency locates Narcotic Detection Canine Certification Report Forms (Initial and Annual) on the ILETSB website under the “Resources” tab on the splash page, selecting “Forms & Information” from the drop down box, and scrolling to the “General Forms” section of the page, until they find “Narcotic Detection Canine Training Report Form (Annual)” or “Narcotic Detection Canine Training Report Form (Initial)”.
- Law Enforcement Agency locates Lead Homicide Investigator Recertification Form on the ILETSB website under the “Resources” tab on the splash page, selecting “Forms & Information” from the drop down box, and scrolling to the “Lead Homicide Investigator” section of the page, until they find “LHI Recertification Form”.
- Submit the form and any scanned supporting documentation via email to PTB.Applications@illinois.gov.
- If any supporting material is lacking, or additional clarification is required, those questions will be directed via email to the email address from which the original form was submitted. This will ensure ILETSB will have a permanent record of a single communication string.
- Recertification letters will be provided electronically to the email address provided by the form submitter.
The Northern Illinois Training Advisory Board is now located at 527 Colman Center Drive, Rockford, IL 61108 in the Rockford Mutual Insurance building. Students and instructors should follow the NITAB parking signs directing them to the back of the building where the employee lot is located. Access the building through the doors marked "NITAB ENTRANCE" located adjacent to the parking lot.
In order to assist our building’s landlord adhere to their security practices/procedures, any student attending class at our current location must have visible law enforcement/correctional officer identification in order to be allowed entrance into the building via the NITAB entrance. This identification can be in the form of Department I.D. or Department badge. This I.D. will show the person allowing building access that you are authorized to enter the building for training purposes without going through the process of signing in as a guest.
