Basic Truck Enforcement

Hours: 40
Tuition: $295

Program Information:

This 40-hour class is designed to train police officers in the detection and investigation of truck law violations.  Truck enforcement is a broad and complicated area of police work, traditional training in this specialty area has been primarily focused in the classroom with minimal field training.  The Suburban Law Enforcement Academy (SLEA) in collaboration with Illinois Truck Enforcement Association is committed to providing cutting-edge training that will give police officers the skills and knowledge necessary to perform comprehensive truck enforcement.


Each block of classroom instruction will be reinforced by written quizzes and hands-on, field practicals that will progressively build on knowledge from earlier practicals.

Topics Include:

  • Developing a successful truck enforcement program
  • Detecting overweight and oversize vehicles
  • Proper weighing and measuring techniques
  • Registration of trucks and trailers
  • Commercial Drivers License classifications
  • Illinois overweight and oversize permit laws
  • Portable scale operation
  • Legal issues / court testimony
  • Illinois safety inspection tests
  • Correct citation and bonding practices

**Cancellations for this class must be received by SLEA 35 days prior to the start of the program in order to avoid being billed!**
