Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

725 ILCS 5/112A-27

    (725 ILCS 5/112A-27) (from Ch. 38, par. 112A-27)
    Sec. 112A-27. Law enforcement policies.
    (a) Every law enforcement agency shall develop, adopt, and implement written policies regarding arrest procedures for domestic violence incidents consistent with the provisions of this Article. In developing these policies, each law enforcement agency shall consult with community organizations and other law enforcement agencies with expertise in recognizing and handling domestic violence incidents.
    (b) In the initial training of new recruits and every 5 years in the continuing education of law enforcement officers, every law enforcement agency shall provide training to aid in understanding the actions of domestic violence victims and abusers and to prevent further victimization of those who have been abused, focusing specifically on looking beyond the physical evidence to the psychology of domestic violence situations, such as the dynamics of the aggressor-victim relationship, separately evaluating claims where both parties claim to be the victim, and long-term effects.
    The Law Enforcement Training Standards Board shall formulate and administer the training under this subsection (b) as part of the current programs for both new recruits and active law enforcement officers. The Board shall formulate the training by July 1, 2017, and implement the training statewide by July 1, 2018. In formulating the training, the Board shall work with community organizations with expertise in domestic violence to determine which topics to include. The Law Enforcement Training Standards Board shall oversee the implementation and continual administration of the training.
