Illinois DCFS Can Carry Pepper Spray With New Bill

(IOCI RADIO) – Illinois Department of Children of Family Service (DCFS) workers will be better equipped to defend themselves under a bill headed to the governor’s desk.

The legislation, sponsored by Steve McClure of Springfield, will allow DCFS investigators to carry pepper spray when visiting a home.

Investigators will have to go through a training course with the state police on the proper use of a defensive spray.
