Illinois Police Association LEGISLATION UPDATE...

There are over 50 different types of bills pertaining to law enforcement in one way or another.

Law Enforcement pensions have been targeted in the Illinois General Assembly for the past several years.

HB 418 is one bill that all law enforcement officers should be concerned about. This bill if passed states that if you are retired and collecting a police pension and if you go to work for another municipal police department as either a police officer or chief you MUST stop collecting your current pension until you leave the "NEW” job. This bill passed the House last year but failed in the Senate.
Everyone should contact their legislators and have them oppose this bill.

Some of the other bills of interest are:

SBSB: Police Shooting-Drug Test would provide that each law enforcement agency adopt a written policy regarding drug testing following an officer involved shooting and have the officer sub submit to an alcohol and drug test.

HB351: Crim CD -Sexual Assault: This would provide that the sentence for aggravated criminal sexual assault1 which does not otherwise provide for an enhanced penalty1 is a Class X felony for which 5 years shall be added to the term of imprisonment imposed by the court. It would also provide that the sentence for predatory criminal sexual assault of a child1 which does not otherwise provide for an enhanced penalty1 is a class X felony with a minimum term of imprisonment of 11 years, rather than 6 years.

HB270: Investigations of Police: This would create the Law Enforcement Sexual Assault Investigation Act: This would provide that a/legations of sexual assault by a police officer while performing his or her duties shall immediately be reported to the police officer's supervisory or command personnel and an independent law enforcement agency.
