Police Officers Come Out in Support of Rauner Signing TRUST Act

A local police chief says a new law signed by Governor Bruce Rauner will improve levels of trust between police and the communities they serve.

Leland Grove Police Chief Dan Ryan… who is a vice-president of the Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police… says that trust is a key component of law enforcement.

The new law prohibits police from detaining or arresting people based only on immigration or citizenship status.

Critics say the new law makes Illinois a “sanctuary state” and will lead to an influx of illegal immigrants.
