Used Squad Cars Available

ILEAS has been asked by the ILEAS Foundation to let our membership know that the Foundation has six squad cars for sale.  These three unmarked and three marked cars were donated to the Foundation by Granite City PD with the intent that the Foundation sell them to raise funds to pay for law enforcement training, workshops, conferences, etc.  Thank you Granite City PD! These cars are currently at ILEAS in Urbana.  The marked cars are black and white and the unmarked are black.  They come in various configurations with light bars, prisoner shields, radio consoles, sirens, push bars, full service spares, etc.  The “Granite City” logo and name have been removed.  They range from 2000 thru 2009 with mileage from 94,000 to 136,000.  For photos, a more detailed description and prices, please see  For smaller agencies that cannot afford new cars, these squads would make affordable alternatives – especially since they come already equipped.  If you have any questions, please contact the Foundation at

Successful ILEAS Annual Conference

ILEAS just completed its 14th Annual Conference at the Crowne Plaza in Springfield.  Conference evaluations are still being reviewed but the initial response has been very positive. 


This year was special because Governor Bruce Rauner spoke at the banquet Monday evening to a packed house.  He took time out of his busy day to stop by to encourage our members to keep the faith.  He also expressed his "complete support" for law enforcement in Illinois and for ILEAS in particular.  He promised to do everything in his power to ensure that ILEAS has sufficient funding to do its job. 

Prior to addressing the banquet, he spoke with with Director Page, the ILEAS Executive Officers and ILEAS Foundation President Mark Beckwith where he also expressed his support.  

Afterwards, he spoke for a bit to a packed room at the banquet to the Conference attendees.  He gave a great speech recognizing law enforcement in general and ILEAS specifically.  He received mutliple standing ovations and applause.  


Both before and afterwards he walked by many tables shaking hands and taking photos with many gathered there.

Thank you, Governor Bruce Rauner!
