Course Objective

The primary intent and foremost objective for the creation of this Law Enforcement Continuing Education training course is to provide a tool to assist Illinois law enforcement officers in responding to self-help repossession complaints.  Repossession Companies and repossession agents and all repossession activity is regulated by the Illinois Commerce Commission.

The United States Supreme Court and numerous Appellate Courts have addressed the issue of law enforcement involvement in non-judicial (self-help) repossessions.  This issue is also addressed in the Federal Civil Rights Act.  This training course is meant to train Illinois law enforcement officers in responding to self-help repossession complaints in accordance with the Collateral Recovery Act and to ensure that the law enforcement officer does not provide assistance or even the suggestion of assistance to the licensed repossession agency employee who is in the process of a repossession.

Course Content

This training course will include predominate case law on this subject which clearly shows that assistance, or even the suggestion of assistance by law enforcement in a self-help repossession is prohibitive and is referred to as “Color of Law”.

Self-Help (Non-Judicial) repossession (recovery) is the act of retaking defaulted collateral without legal assistance.  Replevin, Claim and Delivery, Detinue and Revendication are terms used to define the action of judicial process (legal assistance) in the recovery (repossession) of defaulted collateral.
