PART 299 SEXUALLY VIOLENT PERSONS
SECTION 299.200 DETENTION FACILITY
Section 299.200 Detention Facility
The Department may utilize a secure residential facility as a detention facility. To the extent possible considering operational, programmatic and security needs, detained persons shall be kept separate from committed persons. The Department also approves all Illinois Department of Corrections correctional facilities for the detainment of individuals until they complete any term of imprisonment imposed for a criminal conviction or adjudication of delinquency. While in the Department of Corrections, the Department of Corrections remains responsible for their care and custody.
The Department also approves the use of a county jail for a detention facility where there is a written agreement between the Department and the county sheriff authorizing such usage. Any written agreement shall outline responsibilities assigned to both parties. The Department shall determine which detention facilities it will use based upon geographic area, space availability, willingness of the local officials to participate, and adequacy of the facility to meet the needs of the detained individual.
