LETR Resources Guide

Each year law enforcement personnel who attend our LETR Kickoff Conference receive our annual LETR Kickoff Book. This book serves as a resource and guide for all active LETR departments and/or agencies.  In an effort to make information more accessible to our volunteers, Special Olympics Illinois will be providing an electronic version of this book. Please click the sections below to access our available resources.
