Course Objective

This class will cover the Firearms Restraining Order Act. The Firearm Restraining Order (FRO) allows family/household members, and law enforcement to work with courts to temporarily remove guns and prevent the purchase of new guns by individuals who pose a significant risk of harm to themselves or others. The FRO is a civil procedure, not a criminal one.

Course Content

The goal is to ensure safety of the individual and those around them. This law, enacted January 1st 2019, allows for Illinoisans to use Firearm Restraining Orders to prevent violence in their home and community. It provides family/household members and law enforcement to be proactive in addressing their concerns, by providing them a civil measure to prevent a person who is exhibiting dangerous behavior from legally accessing firearms.  This class will review the law, how to obtain an order and how to best utilize this tool for helping people in crisis.
