Rockton Police to Conduct Concealed Carry Background Checks

ROCKTON (WIFR) -- Rockton police officers will take part in concealed carry background checks.

Tuesday night the village board unanimously approved a plan to double check the Illinois State Police's data base. It's all in an effort to make sure people who shouldn't carry a weapon, don't accidentally fall through the cracks.

Right now, Rockford Police and the Winnebago County Sheriff's Department are still deciding whether to conduct background checks.
