Please call Governor Rauner's office immediately at 217-782-0244.
Tell the Governor to STOP lying about the layoff of 33 Conservation Police Officers being a "budget issue" because it is not! Tell him to rescind the layoff notice and to stop threatening police officers and their families.  If the layoffs go into effect, 34 Counties throughout Illinois will be left without a designated Conservation Police Officer.

!!ALERT!! 

Effective Sept 30th, 2015 13 Conservation Police Officer Trainees (CPOTs) are being terminated and 20 CPOs are being laid off statewide! A detailed map of the layoffs can be found below. 10 of the 13 CPOTs and 15 of the CPOs are MILITARY VETERANS. One CPO in particular was awarded the Navy Cross for saving his entire squad under fire, despite having his own rifle rendered inoperable due to enemy gunfire. 

​Save your CPO by clicking HERE to contact your local Representative and the Governor's office. Call any-and-all veteran's organizations (i.e. VFW, DVA, AMvets, American Legions etc) to express your concerns about laying off and terminating law enforcement who are MILITARY VETERANS.  Your call will make a difference and may save jobs for the people that protect your State's Natural Resources.
