ILEAS and IL. Department of Public Health to Partner on Opioid Grant

ILEAS and the IL Department of Public Health are partnering on a grant entitled, "Empowering and Equipping Law Enforcement and Communities in Rural Illinois to Reduce Opioid Overdose."  The goal of the grant is to equip every squad car in 18 specific rural counties in Downstate Illinois with naloxone, a drug that can reverse the effects of an opioid overdose.  The grant will also provide for training, follow up care, referrals and care coordination in the targeted counties.  Other agencies involved are the IL Department of Human Services Division of Alcohol and Substance Abuse, Heartland Human Services, Bethany Place and the Illinois Broadcasters' Association.  For more information, see this IDPH media release and http://dph.illinois.gov/naloxone The targeted counties are:

Safeguarding Houses of Worship

Reports of mass shootings and other threats to public safety monopolize the headlines. Houses of worship have been targeted along with malls, military recruitment centers, schools, theaters and other gathering places. Technology resources can be applied to identify vulnerabilities, strengthen security and create plans to respond to emergencies of any size.   

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.

Kenilworth Police Department Earns ILEAS Agency Preparedness Award

ILEAS is honored to recognize The Kenilworth Police Department for their participation and completion of the Agency Preparedness Program. On 22 January 2018, Chief Dave Miller was presented the ILEAS Agency Preparedness Award at the Kenilworth Village Board Meeting by ILEAS Regional Planning Coordinator, Jim Hutton. Executive Director Jim Page and the entire ILEAS staff commend Chief Miller, Sergeant Padilla and the men and women of the Kenilworth Police Department for their efforts in successfully completing all components of the Program. 

Interoperable Communications - Upcoming CASM Database Review

As an ILEAS member, you have witnessed and understand the benefits of synchronized operations and communications in times of emergency.  Whether the response is the result of a natural disaster or a man-made disturbance, responding public safety agencies are better prepared to answer appropriately when pertinent information is readily available, and the basic requirements to develop a coordinated plan are in place. To that end, many public safety agencies in Illinois have invested in populating the Communications Assets Survey and Mapping (CASM) database to share relevant communications and point-of-contact information within the public safety community. The information is then available when needed by Communications Coordinators, planners, and agency command personnel to better prepare for response scenarios, and the future of public safety communications within the state.

 Over recent months, a review of CASM records has been undertaken.  In the review process, some records may have been edited to meet CASM standards, clarify a point of contact information, or otherwise address a relatively minor issue.  However, it is evident that a statewide, source-based review of all CASM data is needed to ensure validity.  Clearly, the best authority for a validation is the source agency.
