Illinois Tactical Officers Association

Our purpose is to promote and encourage educational activities and/or research related to the law enforcement field. Provide an opportunity for tactical officers to gather together to compare ideas and experiences. Through education and networking, high-risk operations requiring a tactical team would be made safer.

A giant has passed on to his glory.
Our dear friend and Brother SSGT Al Mampre WWII has joined his Band of Brothers.
He was a true American hero. One of the Greatest Generation, Al celebrated his 97th birthday last week.

He was preceded last year by his WWII 101st PIR 506th Easy Co. partner Ed “Doc” Pepping. They spoke every day, and were reunited at the ITOA TAC-MED Conference in 2005. They had not seen each other in 40 years.
Truly amazing men!
