Illinois Sheriffs Association Calls Governor's Threats to Withhold Funding for Not Enforcing Executive Order "Outrageous"

In a post late last week on their Facebook page, the Illinois Sheriff's Association says they disagree with Governor J-B Pritzker's threat to local law enforcement suffering consequences if they don't enforce his Executive Order.


The news release called it outrageous that the Governor is threatening retaliation against local law enforcment, including litigation and loss of funding.


The Illinois Sheriff's Association statement went on to say that their group has not been consulted by the Governor about the impact his policy has on law enforcement or counties across the state.  The statement added that Sheriffs were elected by their counties to keep residents safe, and they will continue to do so.
