Biographical Note for University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Police Training Institute :

In 1955 the General Assembly passed legislation establishing the Police Training Institute under the direction of the Division of University Extension.1 Upon the Division's reorganization in 1973, responsibility for the Institute was assumed by the Office of Continuing Education and Public Service.2 Since September 1, 1975, the Institute has been under the direction of the Office of University-Wide Projects.3

In response to state concern for improved and increased training of police officers, the Institute offers a Basic Law Enforcement Course for new police officers at the University. Short Courses, conferences and institutes on various aspects of police work are also held throughout the state. The Institute also develops police training curricula and offers consultant service to police departments and other law enforcement agencies.4
