The Illinois Truck Enforcement Association is taking a pro-active role to market and publicize charity and benevolent fundraising events sponsored by member employers, co-workers, or associations. The economic climate of our nation has brought on a spirit of fraternal and cooperative sharing to address the financial needs of those less fortunate. Traditional fundraising events usually do not have the resources to launch cost-effective internet advertising without taking from the funds meant to help the ones in need. Please browse through the fundraising events listed below and see if you can help somewhere. If you are interested in having your event promoted on the ITEA website, please read our policy statement and contact us by clicking HERE.

About the event
The Illinois Truck Enforcement Association (ITEA) is proud to announce its refresher class for police officers. This annual certification program will provide police officers who specialize in truck enforcement the knowledge and resources necessary to do their job with confidence. It is without question that truck law is robust and complicated, which has yielded many variations enforcement methods. The ITEA strives to bring uniformity to truck enforcement activities. It is our belief that proper and consistent truck enforcement among police officers brings credibility to this highly specialized area of law enforcement. Professionalism requires accountability, and the ITEA is here to provide that.
The elective 8-hour certification class will be taught by ITEA Executive Board Members who are also full-time police officers who are board certified instructors for the ITEA 40-hour basic truck enforcement and portable scale certification class. This annual certification program is the first of its kind in Illinois for truck enforcement officers.
The target audience for this class is police officers that have already attended a 40-hour basic truck enforcement class. The ITEA certification process is not just a mere "refresher" course, but a dynamic study into the finer points of truck enforcement. The ITEA has debated, sought counsel and written over thirty Standards of Practice (SOP) which members are called to follow. The SOP's not only settle controversial aspects of truck enforcement but will serve as the focal training material.
When writing the SOP's, the ITEA came alongside police officers, attorneys, trucking industry professionals and leaders from the State regulatory agencies...a cooperative effort along desired by the truck enforcement community.Topics Include- Legal Updates
- Commercial Driver's License Update and Refresher when a CDL is Needed
- Basic Weight Enforcement and Exceptions
- Oversize/Overweight Permits and Size Law
- Second Division Vehicle Registration
- Safety Test and IFTA Laws
- Impaired Driving and Commercial Vehicles Overview
Students successfully completing the course will be awarded an ITEA certification pin to proudly display their accomplishment...and to show they are counted among the best in the State.
