Rule 50.30(f) requires that each agency/facility have at least one staff member who can perform the basic steps of an investigation which include:
- securing the scene,
- preserving evidence,
- separating witnesses and taking statements,
- securing documents and physical evidence,
- and taking applicable photographs.
To this end, OIG has prepared a PowerPoint presentation detailing these requirements and illustrating how they are accomplished. The PowerPoint can be requested by downloading and filling out 50.30(f) Request form (pdf), then returning it to DHS.OIG.Training@Illinois.gov.
Once the form has been received, the PowerPoint slideshow will be sent to the e-mail address specified on the request form. Once the training has been completed, the student will have to take and pass a short test covering the contents.
