About the Institute

The Institute for Law Enforcement Education (ILEE) serves the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania as a research and delivery system for selected advanced law enforcement training. It is responsible for administering alcohol-related training and research programs for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. ILEE is a high quality provider of collision investigation and commercial vehicle investigation training, and conducts traffic safety and reconstruction research in the field of vehicle collisions. In addition, ILEE develops and presents law enforcement patrol and investigation training courses for the law enforcement community. ILEE maintains high academic standards and quality control over all its programs. ILEE has become a nationally recognized and respected training institute.

ILEE began alcohol-related training in 1982, with collision-related courses added in 1986 under the Traffic Institute for Police Services (TIPS). In July 2002, the TIPS programs were united under the new title, Institute for Law Enforcement Education, retaining its staff and instructors. ILEE continues to be funded through a federal grant known as "402 Funds." These funds are provided through the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PENNDOT).

Approximately four thousand students benefit from ILEE classes yearly. Our primary mission is to train Pennsylvania police officers, receiving enrollment priority in our training courses. Officers from other states, other countries and various federal governmental agencies are admitted on a space-available basis. Most of ILEE's training programs "travel" to sites throughout Pennsylvania to provide training to students in their home communities, helping to reduce the overall expenses to the individual police agencies.

ILEE has developed and presented special courses that were requested by outside agencies including: Pennsylvania Department of Education, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, National Transportation and Safety Board, Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, Pennsylvania Department of Health, Pennsylvania State Police and the Pennsylvania Attorney General's Office. ILEE also offers assistance and training services to members of the judiciary, college students, public school administrators and other state agencies.

ILEE has provided speakers at selected workshops within the Pennsylvania public school system and colleges in the areas of driver education, aggressive driving, school safety, and alcohol/drug issues. ILEE continues to work with private organizations such as: the PA FOP and the PA DUI Association concerning alcohol-related issues; and reviews proposed laws, regulations and pending legislation relating to law enforcement matters upon request of various government agencies. ILEE has provided collision investigative expertise to police departments, District Attorney Offices and the State Attorney General's Office.

ILEE is composed of a small administrative office staff, supplemented by approximately ten part-time instructors who travel throughout the state presenting requested training courses. ILEE's staff and instructors are highly qualified current or former law enforcement officers with extensive education, training and experience in the alcohol enforcement, officer safety, criminal investigation, and vehicle collision investigation fields. ILEE maintains its cutting-edge instructional workshops, constantly upgrading the programs and instructional techniques, through continual in-service training/seminars, independent research and retention of its professional instructors. The staff enjoys an international reputation for its professional educational presentations and expertise in a variety of specialized areas of instruction. Pennsylvania courts have acknowledged this reputation when it was noted that ILEE's students are "experts" in their fields based on the type and quality of training received at ILEE.
