Changes to Lead Homicide Investigator and Narcotic Canine Detection Certification Process (Electronic Submissions)

Effective March 1, 2018, ILETSB will be accepting electronically submitted Narcotic Detection Canine Certification Report Forms (Initial and Annual) and Lead Homicide Investigator Recertification Form as the primary method of submission. This new protocol will reduce staff time, allow for records to be shared by the entire organization, and most importantly, ensure retention of permanent records. The process for receiving, retaining, and responding to those electronic applications are as follows:

  • Law Enforcement Agency locates Narcotic Detection Canine Certification Report Forms (Initial and Annual) on the ILETSB website under the “Resources” tab on the splash page, selecting “Forms & Information” from the drop down box, and scrolling to the “General Forms” section of the page, until they find “Narcotic Detection Canine Training Report Form (Annual)” or “Narcotic Detection Canine Training Report Form (Initial)”.
  • Law Enforcement Agency locates Lead Homicide Investigator Recertification Form on the ILETSB website under the “Resources” tab on the splash page, selecting “Forms & Information” from the drop down box, and scrolling to the “Lead Homicide Investigator” section of the page, until they find “LHI Recertification Form”.
  • Submit the form and any scanned supporting documentation via email to PTB.Applications@illinois.gov.
  • If any supporting material is lacking, or additional clarification is required, those questions will be directed via email to the email address from which the original form was submitted. This will ensure ILETSB will have a permanent record of a single communication string.
  • Recertification letters will be provided electronically to the email address provided by the form submitter.
