The Skokie Police Department participates in the Illinois Law Enforcement Accreditation Program (ILEAP), a voluntary process through which agencies may evaluate mission-critical policies and procedures against professionally-established criteria. Compliance with those criteria is then evaluated and verified by an independent and authoritative body, i.e., the Illinois Law Enforcement Accreditation Council. The Skokie Police Department was first awarded accreditation through ILEAP in 2012, becoming only the sixth law enforcement agency in Illinois to have earned this prestigious status. The Department was successfully reaccredited in December 2015.
The Skokie Police Department is currently undergoing another ILEAP Accreditation assessment, and the public is invited to offer comments directly to the independent assessment team by telephone regarding the Skokie Police Department's ability to comply with ILEAP's Tier 1 professional standards. Calls will be received at 847/982-5916 on Wednesday, November 6, 2019, from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. Telephone comments are limited to five minutes and must address the Skokie Police Department's ability to comply with Tier 1 ILEAP professional standards. Please see more information below on the Skokie Police Department press release.
