DUI Enforcement Training
AAIM has had advocates in the court system since its inception in 1982. For the past five years, we have had court watchers in the courts around the Chicago land area. These staff members and volunteers must be training on the latest laws and technological developments used in deterring drunk driving. Our court watch program is underwritten by a grant from the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT).
Elizabeth Earleywine, Illinois Traffic Safety Resource Prosecutor, and AAIM Grant Monitor, spent the day at the AAIM office training our dedicated staff and volunteers on how to address the serious problems in DUI court. Elizabeth gave a powerpoint presentation addressing the challenges in the court system and new DUI laws. She educated everyone on court proceedings, fair treatment of all those who attend court and professionalism of the judges and all court personnel. Keeping up-to-date with current laws and technology is important for our advocates and court watchers in the work they do.
