MAP Mission
MAP was developed to meet the growing needs of police related employees in the area of collective bargaining, to provide due process for our law enforcement members, and to promote the advancement of police labor issues that were not being met by other police labor groups. Joseph Andalina, a 26-year police veteran with more than 35 years experience in the police labor field, originally conceived and established MAP in the early 1980’s. Over the years, it has now, with its staff, board and attorneys, risen to a premier labor union in Illinois.

Asking law enforcement to do too much

MAP is an organization composed of sworn police officers and other police-related employees who maintain full or part time employment with any state, county, or municipal agency. We have joined together to form a more professional voice in law enforcement.

What is MAP?
Only full time sworn police officers or police-related employees who are active or retired may hold office. Membership is open to individuals as well as associations who may affiliate with us for collective bargaining or legal defense. Associations or units wishing to utilize our collective bargaining programs should sign collective bargaining interest cards. There are two ways to establish a chapter for bargaining, depending on whether your group is new or has a current labor organization representing you. Call us for details.

Correction and apology

My apologies to the Round Lake Police Department and Chief Gillette. He has informed me of an error in our Fall 2016 MAP Rap Sheet.

I incorrectly referred to his department in reference to the “Cops on camera in the restroom” article in the Chief’s Follies. He advised that he respects his officers and would never do that.

There are three departments up yonder with the name Round Lake in it. The department in question should have been Round Lake Park.

My error and corrections will be made. I believe Chief Gillette that he cares for his officers, and I appreciate that notified MAP of this error.

Again, my apologies.
Joe Andalina
