"An Organization For The Professional Law Enforcement Officer"
About The Illinois Police Association

The Illinois Police Association (IPA) was formed by a group of law enforcement officers who were vitally interested in the welfare of their profession and they banded together in an attempt to achieve their goal of taking police work out of politics. They met in Joliet, Illinois on February 11,1901.

The first President of the Illinois Police Association was Frank Gahan of Elgin, Illinois and the first Secretary was Ben DeJaegers of Moline, Illinois.

Over the years, the
Illinois Police Association (IPA) has been instrumental in getting legislation passed that benefits Police Officers. 

Some of these laws have dealt with wages, liability payments by the State of Illinois, pensions, indiscriminate use of the polygraph, promotions and the Police Officer's Bill of Rights, just to list a few. 

We also work to defeat legislation that is not favorable to police officers.
