The Illinois State Police Division of the Academy and Training

The Illinois State Police Academy training programs are designed to prepare new officers and to support current law enforcement personnel for the varied, and at times difficult, situations in which they may be engaged. Students are prepared for the complexity of the role of law enforcement through classroom sessions and participation in practical exercises in a range of topic areas intended to enhance and improve on knowledge and skills. Sworn Personnel are required to attend or complete annual, bi-annual, and quarterly courses; Cadets and Recruits meet training requirements while attending the Academy.

Additional training is available to law enforcement as needed and as requested. As a nation-wide leader in law enforcement, all courses are conducted with the highest standards, embracing the principles of the Illinois State Police: Integrity, Service, & Pride.
