History

The role of the Illinois City Police

Answers to the questions will come from an analytical review of news, reports, and articles about the ISP and will form a valid conclusion to the report.
The choice of Illinois State Police. Illinois has been chosen as the subject of this study because of my perception based on reports that the Illinois State Police (ISP) is one of the most efficient and modern police stations in the country. I am interested to find out if this is a valid statement or not. The present population of Illinois is over 12 million, how does the ISP respond to the needs for security of this number in relation to their mission statements.

Early settlers of Illinois are Native Americans in 8000 B/C. and are known as Early Archaic Indians. Their form of survival was through the hunting of large animals, fishing and forages of seeds, roots, berries, and nuts. They lived in caves along the Illinois River Valley. The history of Illinois began with the passage of a Jesuit missionary Jacques Marquette and a Canadian explorer and mapmaker Louis Jolliet in 1673. This territory was ceded to Britain in 1763 under the terms of the Treaty of Paris concluding the French and Indian War. The US gained Illinois after the American Revolution and became the 21st state on December 3, 1818. The famous 16th US President Abraham Lincoln was one of the residents of Illinois in 1861

In the following years, Illinois had a rapid growth of development combined with workers’ migration to the cities. The transportation system, rivers, and canals were developed, and Chicago became the center of activities. Its mid-history was stormed by labor union strikes, but later on, in the 1960s, Illinois had experienced the most expansive development in manufacturing. It was ranked number one in the field of manufacturing. In the 1960s, Illinois has been manufacturing automobiles, tires and producing equipment for the U.S. space program. In the 19th century, Illinois has become a leader in manufacturing as well as in the production of agricultural products.
