Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Alcoholism and Other Drug Abuse and Dependency Act. Redefines "detoxification" as the process of allowing an individual to safely withdraw or sober from a drug or alcohol in a controlled environment, including a treatment or law enforcement facility (rather than the process of allowing an individual to safely withdraw from a drug in a controlled environment). Provides that if an individual under the age of 21 is arrested while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, the police officer on duty has a reasonable suspicion that the individual is still under the influence while at the police station, and there are signs that the individual is impaired, then the officer must make a reasonable attempt to contact a responsible adult who is willing to take custody of the intoxicated individual. Provides that if a responsible adult is not available or is unwilling to take custody of the individual, the individual shall be offered the opportunity to take a breathalyzer or chemical test to prove that he or she is sober; and that if the individual opts for one of the tests, the results of the test shall not be used in any criminal or civil prosecution against the individual. Exempts a police officer from civil or criminal liability for acting in good faith and without negligence in connection with certain actions, including the detention or discharge or the taking into protective custody of an individual under the Act. Provides that the amendatory Act may be referred to as Conor's Law.

Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Illinois Police Training Act. Provides that Illinois Law Enforcement Training Standards Board shall create a model policy to train law enforcement officers to respond to a person arrested while under the influence of alcohol or drugs and the eventual release of that person from custody. Provides that the Board shall create a separate model policy for the release of persons arrested under the influence of alcohol or drugs who are under the age of 21 years of age. Provides that this policy shall include, but not be limited to, language requiring the arresting officer to make a reasonable attempt to contact a responsible adult who is willing to take custody of the person who is under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Amends the Civil Administrative Code of Illinois Department of State Police Law. Provides that the Department of State Police shall adopt a policy and provide training to State Police officers concerning response and care for persons under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Provides that the policy shall be consistent with the Alcoholism and Other Drug Abuse and Dependency Act and shall provide guidance for the arrest of persons under the influence of alcohol or drugs, proper medical attention if warranted, and care and release of those persons from custody. Provides that the policy shall provide guidance concerning the release of persons arrested under the influence of alcohol or drugs who are under the age of 21 years of age which shall include, but not be limited to, language requiring the arresting officer to make a reasonable attempt to contact a responsible adult who is willing to take custody of the person who is under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code. Provides that whenever a peace officer reasonably believes that a person under arrest for a violation of driving while under the influence of alcohol, other drug or drugs, intoxicating compound or compounds or any combination thereof or a similar provision of a local ordinance is likely, upon release, to commit a subsequent violation, or a similar provision of a local ordinance, the arresting officer shall have the vehicle which the person was operating at the time of the arrest impounded for a period of 12 hours after the time of arrest (rather than for not more than 12 hours).
