Munoz042718SPRINGFIELD – A proposed bill from Illinois Senate Assistant Majority Leader Tony Munoz (D-Chicago) would give hiring preference to Illinois State Police applicants who are immediate family members of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty.

“One of the best ways to pay tribute to someone is to take on their life’s work as your own,” said Munoz, a former Chicago police officer. “Losing a loved one in law enforcement inspires relatives to serve, and they deserve the opportunity to continue their family legacy.”

Currently, hiring preference is given to a person who has honorably served in the military.

Consideration for family members of fallen officers will be given once they have passed a fitness test, background investigation and oral interview.

Senate Bill 2252 was approved in the Senate and will now head to the House.
