(50 ILCS 745/3.9)
(from Ch. 85, par. 2512)
The fireman under investigation shall have the right to be
represented by counsel of his or her choosing and may request counsel at
any time before or during interrogation. When such request for counsel
is made, no interrogation shall proceed until reasonable time and opportunity
are provided the fireman to obtain counsel.
If a collective bargaining agreement requires the presence of a representative
of the collective bargaining unit during investigations, such representative
shall be present during the interrogation, unless this requirement is waived
by the fireman being interrogated.
