A new Illinois law prohibits police departments from requiring officers to meet traffic ticket quotas.
In the past, Illinois police departments could require officers to issue a certain number of traffic tickets per shift or per week, and police officers’ job performance was evaluated based on whether they met their quota.
In June 2014, Illinois Governor Pat Quinn approved a bill banning traffic ticket quotas for police officers.
The new law applies to parking and speeding violations issued by local, county, and state police. It also applies to tickets for hunting and fishing violations issued by conservation police.
