Any citizen's comments, concerns, opinions, and experiences can also be e-mailed to the assessor team via ILEAP@rigov.org.
Once the On-Site Assessment visit is completed the assessors will confer, develop an on-site report, and meet with the Illinois Chiefs of Police Association's ILEAP Council to discuss the assessment findings.
