The Illinois Senate has passed a bill that would prohibit police departments from setting ticket quotas. If this bill becomes law, there would be no more requiring officers to write a certain number of tickets per week or month. Senator Andy Manar (D-Bunker Hill) says there are better ways to assess how well an officer is doing his or her job.
