About the ILEAS Foundation
In an effort to better support local law enforcement in Illinois, keep costs down, and provide a wider range of training opportunities, the ILEAS Foundation was created. In 2009 the ILEAS Foundation was formed as a 11-501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation receiving a 501C3 charity tax status. The Foundation supports local law enforcement in Illinois, outside of the standard government grant process. Support is given to local law enforcement by utilizing donations and private grants, which provides equipment and training to officers and deputies to better serve their local Illinois communities.
The Illinois Law Enforcement Alarm System—also known as ILEAS—was created in 2002. ILEAS administers federal homeland security grants for the benefit of local law enforcement agencies in Illinois. These grants come with restrictions on the types of equipment ILEAS can provide to local agencies. Additionally, there are strict restrictions on the specific types of training that can be conducted. ILEAS member agencies pay a small dues stipend to ILEAS to manage the grants. Even though costs keep going up, in today’s tight government budget environment, ILEAS has chosen not to increase the dues.
The Foundation raises funds through donations, fund raising events, and private grants to support the training and equipment mission of ILEAS and to benefit Illinois law enforcement.
The ILEAS Foundation is located at 1701 E. Main Street, Urbana, IL 61802.
