SPRINGFIELD – To recognize the agency’s 100 years of service to residents across the state, State Senator Julie Morrison (D-Lake Forest) supported an initiative declaring April 2022 as Illinois State Police Centennial Month. 


“Our men and women in uniform make the ultimate sacrifice each day to serve and protect our communities,” Morrison said. “By recognizing the Illinois State Police throughout the month of April, we will show support to those who go above and beyond to support us.”

Under the Public Works and Buildings Department, the Illinois State Police was created on April 1, 1922. The agency was initially responsible for enforcing road weight laws. At the beginning, there were only eight patrolmen, and their equipment included World War I uniforms, motorcycles and portable scales for weighing trucks.

Now, with leadership from Director Brendan Kelly, ISP operates 21 patrol districts, eight investigative zones, six forensic science laboratories, and five regional crime scene service centers. The agency works to promote public safety, assist local law enforcement departments, decrease roadway crashes and reduce crime across the state.

“We are forever indebted to those who work around the clock to protect every corner of our state,” Morrison said. “I can’t thank each of these honorable men and women enough.”

Senate Resolution 934 was adopted by the Senate Tuesday.
