Biographical Note for Illinois Law Enforcement Commission - RG 575 : The Illinois Law Enforcement Commission was created by the General Assembly in 1977 to serve a number of functions. It was to serve as the state's official planning agency for the purpose of federal funding; create statewide multi-county regional planning units; develop an annual comprehensive plan to improve the state's criminal justice system; coordinate local, regional, state, and out-of-state enforcement efforts; serve as a clearing house for related information; conduct research studies to improve the system; apply for and equitably distribute federal grant funding; and report annually to the Governor, General Assembly, and interested agencies on the commission's accomplishments and recommendations. It was composed of twenty-one members appointed by the Governor with the consent of the Senate. Membership distribution was to be balanced in relation to state police, local police, and private citizen status; urban and rural condition; and geographic distribution (P.A. 80-805, pp. 2360-2363). The commission was abolished by the General Assembly on January 1, 1983 (P.A. 82-1039, p. 3045).
