Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Police Training Act. Establishes the Critical Race Theory Academy, which shall be operated by a board of 5 members appointed by the Governor. Provides that the board shall appoint members to the Academy Curriculum Committee and the members shall include critical race scholars, critical sociologists, critical educational leaders, critical community organizers, members of the General Assembly, law enforcement officer policy makers, and invested community members. Requires the Committee to create curricula for the Academy for both police academy candidates and police officers. Provides that all candidates that begin courses at a certified school on or after the effective date of the amendatory Act are required to complete the Academy before graduation from the certified school and current police officers must complete Academy continuing education yearly. Provides that the Academy may collaborate with colleges and universities to establish earned college credit for successful completion of the Academy. Provides that, until that time the General Assembly appropriates funds for the operation of the Academy, the Law Enforcement Training Standards Board shall provide administrative and other support to the Critical Race Theory Academy, including providing sufficient funds to enable the Academy to fully operate. Provides that, if the Illinois Law Enforcement Training Standards Board would approve any licensure scheme for police officers, no police officer may be licensed until he or she has successfully completed at least one year's worth of continuing education requirements at the Academy. Effective immediately.
