Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process.
Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes,
statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect.
If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has
not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already
been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes
made to the current law.

(from Ch. 34, par. 3-6023)
Attendance at courts.
Each sheriff shall, in person or by
deputy, county corrections officer, or court security officer, attend upon
all courts held in his or her county when in session, and obey the lawful
orders and directions of the court, and shall maintain the security of the
courthouse. Court services customarily performed by sheriffs shall be provided
by the sheriff or his or her deputies, county corrections officers, or
court security officers, rather than by employees of the court, unless there
are no deputies, county corrections officers, or court security officers
available to perform such services. The expenses of the sheriff in carrying
out his or her duties under this Section, including the compensation of
deputies, county corrections officers, or court security officers assigned
to such services, shall be paid to the county from fees collected pursuant to
court order for services of the sheriff and from any court services fees
collected by the county pursuant to Section 5-1103, as now or hereafter
