The association offers several programs. Training programs exist to help to train administrative sheriffs' staffs. The association provides education in the form of conferences, as well, which serve as a means for sheriffs to share information. Also, the Illinois Sheriff's Association provides several programs for youth. It sponsors scholarships for students exhibiting "outstanding scholastic, extra-curricular and character qualifications." Through such scholarships, the association also sponsors 60 Illinois students to attend the Illinois Teenage Institute on Substance Abuse (ITI) and in 2010, it awarded more than $53,000.
The association is vocal about its support of "tasers" as a non-lethal alternative to other means of defense.
The Illinois Sheriff's Association tracks crime trends across the state. For example, it stated in 2010 that crime is lower in communities with strong pre-K programs.
