Law Enforcement Wellness Support Event - Registration Closed

Registration is closed for this event.

The ILEAS Foundation and Peacemaker Project 703 (both non-profits) have joined forces to sponsor a Law Enforcement Wellness Support Event on June 21, 2022 at the ILEAS Training Center in Urbana.  This FREE event will bring together Illinois law enforcement officials with mental and physical wellness providers and organizations from across the State.  Due to interest, we are trying to limit attendance to two people from any one agency.  Lunch will be provided at no cost.  Participants will have the opportunity in a general session to hear from all of the providers as they describe the services they offer.  After lunch, participants can attend breakouts presented by various providers and/or spend time one-on-one talking about any wellness issue in which they are interested.  Seating is limited - please register by June 7th.  For more information, CLICK HERE for the flyer and the registration information.  

Repurposed Repeaters Built By ILEAS Communications Staff

ILEAS Communications staff have been thinking outside the box! For some time, they have been rehabbing and repurposing surplus radios and distributing them to public safety agencies throughout Illinois.  They have outdone themselves again by repurposing surplus repeater units into portable repeaters for the use during emergencies and disasters. This involved taking surplus repeaters from ISP and building specialized cases and reprogramming the repeaters.  Read below about what they did and how ILEAS is supporting public safety agencies across our State.

ILEAS to Host COML Course This Fall

One of the issues that comes up during almost every incident or event is Communications Issues.

ILEAS is hosting an All-Hazards Position-Specific Communications Unit Leader (COML) Course (E969). The class is September 19-22, 2022. Students are invited to attend Equipment Day on September 23, 2022.

The COML Course is a four day class designed to familiarize these professionals with the role and responsibilities of a COML under the NIMS ICS and to provide hands-on exercises that reinforce the lecture materials. This training opportunity gives communications personnel the knowledge to develop and implement effective ICS/NIMS Incident Communications plans, and run the Communications Unit in an efficient manner. Pre-requisites include online classes ICS-100,200,700, and 800, and in-person class ICS-300.

Equipment Day is a one day class that covers typical deployable communications equipment used by ILEAS and others. The students get a chance take what they learned in the COML class and apply it in a hands-on setting. Equipment Day is open to anyone who has completed this, or any previous, COML class at any time in the past. Proof of completion may be required.

There is no cost associated with this training. Reimbursement for travel is not available. Lodging and working lunches will be provided for this class.
