Quota Legislation

(a)  No police agency shall have the power or authority to order, mandate, require or in any other manner, directly or indirectly, suggest that any law-enforcement officer shall comply with a “quota” or objective system requiring the issuance of a certain number of traffic citations, civil citations, tickets, criminal arrests (or any other type of citation), or conduct a certain number of investigative stops on any daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly or yearly basis.    

(b)  Police agencies shall be prohibited from penalizing or threatening law enforcement officers employed by the agency, expressly or impliedly, as to his or her employment in a manner, including, but not limited to, a reassignment, a scheduling change, an adverse evaluation, a constructive dismissal, a salary reduction, the denial of a promotion, the denial of overtime, or placement on probationary status based in whole or in part on such employee’s failure to meet a quota or objective system as defined in subsection (a) of this Section.  Officers shall be evaluated on their overall job performance and not on the basis of the volume of citations issued or arrests made.
