ILEAS Mobile Field Forces and Regional Communication Assets Host Training Exercise in Carterville, Illinois during the Solar Eclipse

On August 20 & 21, 2017, ILEAS conducted an exercise at John A Logan College in Carterville Ill. that coincided with the recent solar eclipse. 56 officers from across the state to include Regions 2, 3 North, 3 Central, 6, 7, 8 and 9/11 participated in a response to simulated complex coordinated multi-venue bioterrorism acts in Jackson and Williamson Counties. Seven blended squads were developed from the teams allowing officers to work with members from other than their own region. The exercise included practical work in the following areas:

Attorney General Lisa Madigan Visits ILEAS Training Center

Attorney General Lisa Madigan visited the ILEAS Training Center on August 16th.  She was in Champaign for a public appearance earlier in the day and stopped by the Training Center to visit a training class. The Internet Crimes Against Chlidren (ICAC) training is sponsored by her office.  She spoke to the students thanking them for volunteering for the training.  She emphasized just how important it was to stop online child predators.

Attorney General Madigan then spent some time talking with ILEAS staff and leadership.
She characterized ILEAS as a "great partner" with the Attorney General's Office.
ILEAS thanks Attorney General Madigan for her support!

Mobile Field Force Exercise in Southern Illinois

A combination of squads from various Mobile Field Forces in Central and Northern Illinois will come together for a full-scale exercise in Southern Illinois on August 20/21.  This exercise has been approved by the Illinois Emergency Management Agency.  The purpose of the exercise will be:

  • Deploy from one part of the State to another to practice responding to a terrorist event or natural disaster
  • The ability for multiple squads from different Mobile Field Forces to work together over an extended time in the field
  • Work with MABAS to set up, maintain, live in and break down their tent city capabilities
  • Test our ability to provide food for the team members in a rural environment without the benefit of local resources
  • Test a significant amount of communications and technology gear that has been acquired and deployed in the last year
  • Skills that every Mobile Field Force team member should know will be tested

To add a real-world element, the exercise will coincide with the Total Solar Eclipse which will take place on Monday afternoon. 

 

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 www.ileasfoundation.org.  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 foundation@ileasfoundation.org.
