ILEAS and ISP Partner on Breath Alcohol Operator Recertification

ILEAS and the Illinois State Police have partnered to provide a more efficient and effective delivery for Breath Alcohol Operator (BAO) and Portable Breath Test (PBT) recertification. ILEAS is now providing the online Learning Management System (LMS) capability for BAO and BAO-PBT officers and deputies to recertify.  In order to prioritize operators whose certificates are about to expire, ILEAS is focusing on those expiring this month first.  We have a list from ISP and have reached out to those agencies/operators starting April 4, 2019.  Once those operators who are at immediate risk of losing their certifications are caught up, we will phase in the rest of the law enforcement agencies in the State - until eventually everyone will be converted over. 

DHS Offers New Virtual Training for Active Shooter Incidents

The military has used video game-style simulations for years to train their soldiers. Now, that technology will be available to train first responders on active shooter incidents. The Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate and the U.S. Army Research Laboratory joined forces to create a virtual training platform, available free to all response agencies nationwide. 

First pilot-tested in 2013, Enhanced Dynamic Geo-Social Environment (EDGE) allows responders from law enforcement, fire, EMS, dispatch, and unified command to assume discipline-based avatars and role-play complex response scenarios. Responders outfit their avatar, navigate the simulation and respond to threats based on their department’s policies. Each person determines their avatar’s actions, meaning the simulation plays out differently each time. EDGE was designed to allow people to take part in training simultaneously from different locations. This supports single- and multi-agency use which reduces training costs due to travel. It encourages different agencies or jurisdictions to train together by reducing barriers. Interagency exercises and drills develop a stronger and more effective response. 

The scenario currently available is of an active shooter at a hotel armed also with Molotov cocktails. A second scenario, a school shooting environment, is planned for release this fall. Agencies interested in obtaining a free copy of the EDGE hotel scenario or who have general EDGE inquiries may contact or visist the DHS Science and Technology web page at
