IL: Gov. Quinn Signs Law Banning Police Ticket Quotas

Illinois Governor Pat Quinn has signed legislation to immediately ban police ticket quotas.

The legislation signed on Sunday says municipalities and police departments can't require officers to issue a certain number of citations in a certain period of time.

It also says the number of tickets an officer writes can't be used as part of a performance evaluation.

The ban applies to local, county and state police departments.

Supporters of the bill say arbitrary quotas undermine public trust.
