The primary purpose of the Illinois State Police Academy is to prepare new officers for a career in law enforcement. In keeping with ISP's tradition of excellence, this goal is accomplished through innovative, quality training and educational practices. The academy also offers a multitude of continuing training and educational programs for ISP employees as well as offerings for other state, local and federal agencies.
The Illinois State Police Academy provides training
to cadets, in-service education to troopers and a basic curriculum
to state, county and municipal agencies.
The ISP Academy is proud of the national reputation it has earned and is looking forward to carrying this tradition into the 21st century. The Academy will continue to challenge itself -- using the same philosophy as its focus: "How can we do, what we do, even better?"
