Illinois State Police Instructors Improperly Certified Applicants

ST. CLAIR COUNTY, Ill. (KMOX) – Two Illinois State Police firearms instructors are being forced to stop teaching after they gave almost 100 students certificates who had not earned them.

Sixteen hours of training is required and the complaint states the students didn’t finish the training, but were given concealed carry certificates anyway.

The St. Clair Attorney’s office is reviewing the case to see if any charges should be filed.
