Mobile Team Unit Funding in Fiscal Year 2011
The Illinois Law Enforcement Training and Standards Board awarded state funds
totaling $4,485,535.22 to 16 Mobile Team Training Units in Fiscal Year 2011, under the
authority of the Intergovernmental Law Enforcement Officers In-Service Training Act
(Public Act 82-674). In addition, the Board awarded $872,519.75 in state and federal
grant funds to the Mobile Team Units for specialized training related to the police
functions of traffic enforcement, homeland security, death investigation and hazardous
materials. In total, the Mobile Team Units expended $5,358,054.97 in state and federal
funds. This amount was augmented by expended local funds and tuition totaling
$2,450,750.96. For Fiscal Year 2011 the 16 Mobile Team Units collectively expended
$7,808,805.93 in federal, state, and local funds. Illustration #1 provides a map and
address directory for each of the Mobile Team Units established and funded by the State
of Illinois through the Intergovernmental Law Enforcement Officers In-Service Training
Act. Historically and for governmental purposes, the State of Illinois established the
Mobile Team Unit (MTU) regional boundaries as required by Public Act 82-674. The
concept of boundaries helps to map and to define the geographic areas known as Mobile
Team Units that currently exist today. However, officers have the flexibility to attend
training opportunities throughout the state and area not restricted to the defined
boundaries in order to reach the educational pinnacle necessary to become an effective
officer. Illustrations #2 and #3 give a complete summary of funding provided to the
Mobile Team Units in Fiscal Year 2011.
