Police drug test bill

SPRINGFIELD, Illinois - State lawmakers are considering a bill that would require police officers to be drug tested immediately after being involved in a shooting.

The move is the latest effort to improve the relationship between police and the communities they serve.

Officers would have to take a drug and alcohol test within an hour after any officer-involved shooting.

Supporters say the move would increase transparency and trust.

The bill will take effect immediately if adopted.
