Historically, law enforcement personnel who attend the annual LETR Kickoff Conference receive a LETR Binder. This binder has served as a guide for all active LETR departments and/or agencies. In an effort to make information more accessible to our volunteers and law enforcement partners, Special Olympics Illinois will be providing an electronic version of this guide moving forward.
