The marijuana trailer bill passed last week during VETO Session and is expected to be signed into law.

Those changes are mostly good for law enforcement. ILACP is putting together some training sessions to help you implement the new Cannabis Tax and Regulation Act. Our training will help get police departments and state’s attorneys on the same page when it comes to enforcement.

NAACP, ILACP announce
10 historic Shared Principles;
how to adopt them as your own

The Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police (ILACP) and the Illinois NAACP State Conference announced an affirmation of 10 Shared Principles that are designed to bridge the gap of mistrust between police and communities of color. The first of its kind in our nation’s history, the March 22, 2018, agreement between an NAACP state conference and a statewide law enforcement agency identifies the common ground between local law enforcement and communities of color in their commitment to safe communities.

ILACP President Brian Fengel encourages all police departments to adopt these principles as your own and have your department's name added to the list on our website.
