Summary

Creates the Local Protection of Individual Rights Act. Provides that a unit of local government, an agent of a unit of local government, or a person acting on behalf of a unit of local government shall not engage in a pattern or practice of conduct by law enforcement officers that deprives any person of rights, privileges, or immunities secured or protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States or Illinois.
