Does Local LEO have authority on Highways?

Or is it only State Police that have jurisdiction on the Highways? Curious because on the way to work today there was a Palatine Cop on the highway and everyone slowed down. I always thought they didn't have authority on the Highways only State troopers. Can anybody confirm this?

they can pull you over anywhere and detain till State comes on scene to grab the officers complaint and they they both would go to court to confirm the ticket offense.

But, unless youre being a total asshat, they wont bother cause they're either on the way home, or on the way to work.

Local police have authority to arrest anyone anywhere in Illinois for felony and misdemeanor offenses. (725 ILCS 5/107-4(a-3)). Therefore, the Palatine police could legitimately arrest for things like DUI or reckless driving.

Most traffic offenses are petty offenses, which aren't specifically covered in that section of the criminal code, but I wouldn't rely on that to mean that I could speed past a local LEO on a highway with impunity.

Yes municipal police can write tickets for motor vehicle violations on the highway.

This reminds me of when I was driving back from WI this summer. I came across a Secretary Of State Police on the highway. I was on I294 S and this IL SOSP comes next to me and yells on his speaker. Mind you I'm in my car with the windows closed so I can hear shi!.

I was doing 70 so I slow down to 65 because I thought it was a cop. He drives next to me for a while glarring and then takes off. A little while down the road he does the same thing to someone else. Anyone doing over 60 he was right next to pacing them. What the hell do SOSP do anyways? I thought it was something to do with stolen vehicles. This guy seemed like a cop wannabe...

Quoting now from the IL SoS Web page:

Quote:
What is the Mission of the Illinois Secretary of State Police?
The primary mission of the Illinois Secretary of State, Department of Police is the regulation of businesses involved in the sale of motor vehicles and vehicle parts through the enforcement of the Illinois Motor Vehicle statutes and the Secretary of State Administrative Rules and Regulations. The purpose of this regulatory function is the protection of the consumer against fraudulent motor vehicle transactions throughout the State of Illinois.

A secondary mission of the Illinois Secretary of State, Department of Police is to provide law enforcement services to all Secretary of State facilities and the Capitol Complex.
So, apparently the answer is, not a whole hell of a lot.

i dont think this is true at all...cause on the EOE (elgin o'hare expressway for you newbies out there)they had MULTIPLE SOSP out there puling people over and ticketing...its the 1st time i ever seen it happen in my entire life of living in this state...but i do know that other cops can patrol the highways and give tickets...

...plus my gf was with me saying "omg slow down, slow down" and I was thinking "Lose annoying squalk box in passenger seat, afford more mods and have less weight in the car and on the back of the bike"...so i dumped her and I'm single again as usual...HERE KITTY KITTY!!!

Dont know about IL, but in WI local PD's can issue tickets on highways and interstates if the road is in the city/town limits. Ie, going through Janesville on I90/39 you can be pulled over by a Janesville cop.
