Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Police Training Act. Provides that a training waiver from the Minimum Standards Basic Law Enforcement or County Correctional Training Course due to extensive prior law enforcement or county corrections experience shall be given whether or not the experience was obtained by employment by this State or any local governmental agency. Provides that, within 60 days after the effective date of the amendatory Act, the Illinois Law Enforcement Training Standards Board shall adopt uniform rules providing for a training waiver process for a person previously employed and qualified as a law enforcement or county corrections officer under federal law or the laws of any other state. Requires the rules to provide that any person previously employed or qualified as a law enforcement or county corrections officer under federal law or the laws of any other state shall successfully complete the following prior to the approval of a waiver: (1) a training program approved by the Board on the laws of this State relevant to the duties of law enforcement and county correctional officers; and (2) firearms training. Amends the Illinois Administrative Procedure Act. Grants the Illinois Law Enforcement Training Standards Board emergency rulemaking authority to implement the provisions of the amendatory Act.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the introduced bill with the following change. Provides that no person shall receive a permanent appointment as a law enforcement officer or a permanent appointment as a county corrections officer unless that person has, among other options, a training waiver by reason of extensive prior law enforcement or county corrections experience obtained by employment with any law enforcement agency in any state (rather than whether or not the experience was obtained by employment by this State or any local governmental agency).

House Floor Amendment No. 2
Adds reference to:
50 ILCS 705/8.2

Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Illinois Police Training Act. Provides that a waiver for specified training requirements for appointment as a full-time or part-time law enforcement or county corrections officer may be granted by reason of prior law enforcement or county corrections experience (rather than extensive prior law enforcement or county corrections experience), and adds that the experience may be obtained in Illinois, in any other state, or with an agency of the federal government. Adds requirements for agencies seeking a reciprocity waiver for training completed outside of Illinois. Provides that the Illinois Law Enforcement Training Standards Board shall adopt uniform rules providing for a waiver process for a person previously employed and qualified as a law enforcement or county corrections officer under federal law or the laws of any other state or who has completed a basic law enforcement officer or correctional officer academy who would be qualified to be employed as a law enforcement officer or correctional officer by the federal government or any other state, including that the person shall successfully complete the following prior to the approval of a waiver: (1) a training program or set of coursework approved by the Board on the laws of the State relevant to the duties and training requirements of law enforcement and county correctional officers; (2) firearms training; and (3) successful passage of the equivalency certification examination.
