Police Training Institute Back Up


Champaign IL – After five months of being closed the University of Illinois police training institute is back up and running. More than 40 recruits started classes last week, in the 12 week basic law enforcement program.


The police training institute nearly closed over the summer after the U of I concluded it could no longer afford to subsidize the classes. An agreement in July between the University and State Law Enforcement Standards board allowed the PTI to reopen.
