What makes the Illinois Council Of Police (ICOPs) different from other organizations that have members who are law enforcement officers? ICOPs is a Union of law enforcement professionals, run by law enforcement officers with the experience, know-how and commitment to get the job done. Our Legal Plan is the best protection available to Police Officers in Illinois. You get immediate backup with the ICOPs Legal Plan, which is open to all law enforcement personnel whether or not they are under an ICOPs contract.
In jurisdictions throughout northern Illinois, hundreds of Police Officers represented by ICOPs attorneys have won successful settlements in job-related disciplinary matters. ICOPs Union Contracts are among the best in the field and we have negotiated contracts with significant pay raises and improvements in benefits for Police Officers. Contracts include comprehensive provisions on job security, seniority, hours and conditions of work, grievance handling, and health and safety.
Unlike other Unions, Illinois Council of Police and our attorneys still write, file and follow up on the time limits through each stage of a grievance.
The ICOPs officers and staff work closely with ICOPs members to negotiate contracts in a professional and timely manner. After a contract is negotiated, ICOPs stays on top of it to ensure that management fully adheres to the contract. As an Illinois police union, we are ready, willing, and able to represent you in contract negotiations, contract enforcement, internal investigations, and grievances. In order to do that, ICOPs must be designated as your certified Union representative.
