This 40-hour class instructs police officers in the detection and investigation of truck law violations. Traditional training in this complicated specialty area of police work has been focused in the classroom with minimal field practice. The Suburban Law Enforcement Academy (SLEA) in collaboration with Illinois Truck Enforcement Association is committed to providing a cutting-edge training to give police officers the skills and knowledge necessary to perform comprehensive truck enforcement. Participants learn how to develop a successful truck enforcement program and discuss subjects as Commercial Driver's License (CDL) classifications, registration of trucks and trailers, Illinois overweight and oversize permit laws and Illinois safety inspection tests. Each block of classroom instruction will be reinforced by written quizzes and hands-on field practice that will progressively build on knowledge from earlier practicals.
• Detecting overweight and oversize vehicles
• Proper weighing and measuring techniques
• Portable scale operation
• Legal issues and court testimony
