ILEAS applied for and received a significant amount of grant funds to replace 14 year old radios being used by the WMD Special Response Teams throughout Illinois. The radios the teams are currently using were purchased in 2004 & 2005. These new radios have advanced encryption capabilities and more modern technological capabilities. All the radios have been purchased and are ready for distribution. 251 officers/deputies from around 100 law enforcement agencies will receive these radios. What you see here is worth approximately $1 million.
Some of the current radios will be redistributed to Mobile Field Force and possibly EOD teams. The remaining ones will be distributed to local public safety agencies that have requested radios.
The Illinois Law Enforcement Alarm System (ILEAS), has identified a need to add a professional exercise planner and representative to our special teams staff. ILEAS currently supports 6 WMD/SRT and 10 MFF’s comprised of hundreds of local officers and deputies that come together to form regional teams. In addition, we are directly involved with 9 ITECS and 13 UCP Communication assets as well as 10 EOD teams.
ILEAS is interested in expanding its existing Learning Management staff to meet the needs of our growing enterprise.

ILEAS is providing a platform for thousands of state and local employee to assist with their training and records requirements. We see this as an ever-expanding opportunity for ILEAS to serve the needs of service providers across the state for years to come.
