Illinois Compiled Statutes

Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
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 Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

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.

Costs shall be reimbursed monthly based on a plan and budget approved by the Supreme Court. No Department may be reimbursed for costs which exceed or are not provided for in the approved annual plan and budget. After the effective date of this amendatory Act of 1985, each county must provide basic services in accordance with the annual plan and standards created by the division.

Allocation of such positions will be based on comparative need considering capacity, staff/resident ratio, physical plant and program.

probation officer positions engaged in basic services and new or expanded services. All such positions shall be approved by the division in accordance with this Act and division standards.

Departments to be eligible for funding must satisfy the following conditions:
        (a) The Department shall have on file with the
    
Supreme Court an annual Probation plan for continuing, improved, and new Probation and Court Services Programs approved by the Supreme Court or its designee. This plan shall indicate the manner in which Probation and Court Services will be delivered and improved, consistent with the minimum standards and regulations for Probation and Court Services, as established by the Supreme Court. In counties with more than one Probation and Court Services Department eligible to receive funds, all Departments within that county must submit plans which are approved by the Supreme Court.
        (b) The annual probation plan shall seek to generally
    
improve the quality of probation services and to reduce the commitment of adult offenders to the Department of Corrections and to reduce the commitment of juvenile offenders to the Department of Juvenile Justice and shall require, when appropriate, coordination with the Department of Corrections, the Department of Juvenile Justice, and the Department of Children and Family Services in the development and use of community resources, information systems, case review and permanency planning systems to avoid the duplication of services.
        (c) The Department shall be in compliance with
    
standards developed by the Supreme Court for basic, new and expanded services, training, personnel hiring and promotion.
        (d) The Department shall in its annual plan indicate
    
the manner in which it will support the rights of crime victims and in which manner it will implement Article I, Section 8.1 of the Illinois Constitution and in what manner it will coordinate crime victims' support services with other criminal justice agencies within its jurisdiction, including but not limited to, the State's Attorney, the Sheriff and any municipal police department.
    (7) No statement shall be verified by the Supreme Court or its designee or vouchered by the Comptroller unless each of the following conditions have been met:
        (a) The probation officer is a full-time employee
    
appointed by the Chief Judge to provide probation services.
        (b) The probation officer, in order to be eligible
    
for State reimbursement, is receiving a salary of at least $17,000 per year.
        (c) The probation officer is appointed or was
    
reappointed in accordance with minimum qualifications or criteria established by the Supreme Court; however, all probation officers appointed prior to January 1, 1978, shall be exempted from the minimum requirements established by the Supreme Court. Payments shall be made to counties employing these exempted probation officers as long as they are employed in the position held on the effective date of this amendatory Act of 1985. Promotions shall be governed by minimum qualifications established by the Supreme Court.
        (d) The Department has an established compensation
    
schedule approved by the Supreme Court. The compensation schedule shall include salary ranges with necessary increments to compensate each employee. The increments shall, within the salary ranges, be based on such factors as bona fide occupational qualifications, performance, and length of service. Each position in the Department shall be placed on the compensation schedule according to job duties and responsibilities of such position. The policy and procedures of the compensation schedule shall be made available to each employee.
    (8) In order to obtain full reimbursement of all approved costs, each Department must continue to employ at least the same number of probation officers and probation managers as were authorized for employment for the fiscal year which includes January 1, 1985. This number shall be designated as the base amount of the Department. No positions approved by the Division under paragraph (b) of subsection 4 will be included in the base amount. In the event that the Department employs fewer Probation officers and Probation managers than the base amount for a period of 90 days, funding received by the Department under subsection 4 of this Section may be reduced on a monthly basis by the amount of the current salaries of any positions below the base amount.
    (9) Before the 15th day of each month, the treasurer of any county which has a Probation and Court Services Department, or the treasurer of the most populous county, in the case of a Probation or Court Services Department funded by more than one county, shall submit an itemized statement of all approved costs incurred in the delivery of Basic Probation and Court Services under this Act to the Supreme Court. The treasurer may also submit an itemized statement of all approved costs incurred in the delivery of new and expanded Probation and Court Services as well as Individualized Services and Programs. The Supreme Court or its designee shall verify compliance with this Section and shall examine and audit the monthly statement and, upon finding them to be correct, shall forward them to the Comptroller for payment to the county treasurer. In the case of payment to a treasurer of a county which is the most populous of counties sharing the salary and expenses of a Probation and Court Services Department, the treasurer shall divide the money between the counties in a manner that reflects each county's share of the cost incurred by the Department.
    (10) The county treasurer must certify that funds received under this Section shall be used solely to maintain and improve Probation and Court Services. The county or circuit shall remain in compliance with all standards, policies and regulations established by the Supreme Court. If at any time the Supreme Court determines that a county or circuit is not in compliance, the Supreme Court shall immediately notify the Chief Judge, county board chairman and the Director of Court Services Chief Probation Officer. If after 90 days of written notice the noncompliance still exists, the Supreme Court shall be required to reduce the amount of monthly reimbursement by 10%. An additional 10% reduction of monthly reimbursement shall occur for each consecutive month of noncompliance. Except as provided in subsection 5 of Section 15, funding to counties shall commence on April 1, 1986. Funds received under this Act shall be used to provide for Probation Department expenses including those required under Section 13 of this Act. The Mandatory Arbitration Fund may be used to provide for Probation Department expenses, including those required under Section 13 of this Act.
    (11) The respective counties shall be responsible for capital and space costs, fringe benefits, clerical costs, equipment, telecommunications, postage, commodities and printing.
    (12) For purposes of this Act only, probation officers shall be considered peace officers. In the exercise of their official duties, probation officers, sheriffs, and police officers may, anywhere within the State, arrest any probationer who is in violation of any of the conditions of his or her probation, conditional discharge, or supervision, and it shall be the duty of the officer making the arrest to take the probationer before the Court having jurisdiction over the probationer for further order.

    (c) a statement of the type of services and programs to provide for the individual needs of offenders;
    (d) a budget indicating the costs of each service or program to be funded under the plan;
    (e) a summary of contracts and service agreements indicating the treatment goals and number of offenders to be served by each service provider; and
    (f) a statement indicating that the individualized services and programs will not be duplicating existing services and programs.
    Funds for this plan shall not supplant existing county funded programs. The allocation of payments for adult and juvenile services under the local plan shall be based on the proportionate adult and juvenile workload of the department or departments covered by the local plan.
    (4) A county or group of counties shall be eligible to apply for an amount of funding not to exceed the same proportionate share of total appropriations for Individualized Services and Programs as the county or group of counties received of total State reimbursements under subsection 4 of Section 15 of this Act or previous Probation subsidy programs in the prior State fiscal year. However the Supreme Court may waive this limitation to encourage the participation of rural counties.
    The Supreme Court shall forward Individualized Services and Programs allocations to the county treasurer as provided in Section 15 of this Act. Each county shall receive, maintain, and appropriate said funds in a separate line item account of the probation department budget. In addition, the Supreme Court shall, upon approval of the annual plan, forward 20% of the approved Individualized Services and Programs allocations to the county treasurer to be deposited in said line item account. Subsequent allocations shall be made to the county on a monthly basis.
    It shall be the responsibility of the county through the probation budget and in accordance with county policy and procedure to make payments for Individualized Services and Programs.
    At the end of the State of Illinois fiscal year, the county shall promptly return any uncommitted and unused funds from this account.
    (5) The Supreme Court shall be responsible for the following:
    (a) The Supreme Court may review each Individualized Services and Programs plan for compliance with standards established for such plans. A plan may be approved as submitted, approved with modifications, or rejected. No plan shall be considered for approval if the circuit or county is not in full compliance with all regulations, standards and guidelines pertaining to the delivery of basic probation services as established by the Supreme Court.
    (b) The Supreme Court shall monitor on a continual basis and shall evaluate annually both the program and its fiscal activities in all counties receiving an allocation under Individualized Services and Programs. Any program or service which has not met the goals and objectives of its contract or service agreement shall be subject to denial for funding in subsequent years. The Supreme Court shall evaluate the effectiveness of Individualized Services and Programs in each circuit or county. In determining the future funding for Individualized Services and Programs under this Act, such evaluation shall include, as a primary indicator of success, an increased or maintained percentage of probation sentences for felons convicted of probationable offenses.
    (c) Any Individualized Services and Programs allocations not applied for and approved by the Supreme Court shall be available for redistribution to approved plans for the remainder of that fiscal year. Any county that invests local moneys in the Individualized Services and Programs shall be given first consideration for any redistribution of allocations.

730 ILCS 110/16.1

    (730 ILCS 110/16.1)
    Sec. 16.1. Redeploy Illinois Program.
    (a) The purpose of this Section is to encourage the deinstitutionalization of juvenile offenders by establishing projects in counties or groups of counties that reallocate State funds from juvenile correctional confinement to local jurisdictions, which will establish a continuum of local, community-based sanctions and treatment alternatives for juvenile offenders who would be incarcerated if those local services and sanctions did not exist. It is also intended to offer alternatives, when appropriate, to avoid commitment to the Department of Juvenile Justice, to direct child welfare services for minors charged with a criminal offense or adjudicated delinquent under Section 5 of the Children and Family Services Act. The allotment of funds will be based on a formula that rewards local jurisdictions for the establishment or expansion of local alternatives to incarceration, and requires them to pay for utilization of incarceration as a sanction. In addition, there shall be an allocation of resources (amount to be determined annually by the Redeploy Illinois Oversight Board) set aside at the beginning of each fiscal year to be made available for any county or groups of counties which need resources only occasionally for services to avoid commitment to the Department of Juvenile Justice for a limited number of youth. This redeployment of funds shall be made in a manner consistent with the Juvenile Court Act of 1987 and the following purposes and policies:
        (1) The juvenile justice system should protect the
    
community, impose accountability to victims and communities for violations of law, and equip juvenile offenders with competencies to live responsibly and productively.
        (2) Juveniles should be treated in the least
    
restrictive manner possible while maintaining the safety of the community.
        (3) A continuum of services and sanctions from least
    
restrictive to most restrictive should be available in every community.
        (4) There should be local responsibility and
    
authority for planning, organizing, and coordinating service resources in the community. People in the community can best choose a range of services which reflect community values and meet the needs of their own youth.
        (5) Juveniles who pose a threat to the community or
    
themselves need special care, including secure settings. Such services as detention, long-term incarceration, or residential treatment are too costly to provide in each community and should be coordinated and provided on a regional or Statewide basis.
        (6) The roles of State and local government in
    
creating and maintaining services to youth in the juvenile justice system should be clearly defined. The role of the State is to fund services, set standards of care, train service providers, and monitor the integration and coordination of services. The role of local government should be to oversee the provision of services.
    (b) Each county or circuit participating in the Redeploy Illinois program must create a local plan demonstrating how it will reduce the county or circuit's utilization of secure confinement of juvenile offenders in the Illinois Department of Juvenile Justice or county detention centers by the creation or expansion of individualized services or programs that may include but are not limited to the following:
        (1) Assessment and evaluation services to provide the
    
juvenile justice system with accurate individualized case information on each juvenile offender including mental health, substance abuse, educational, and family information;
        (2) Direct services to individual juvenile offenders
    
including educational, vocational, mental health, substance abuse, supervision, and service coordination; and
        (3) Programs that seek to restore the offender to the
    
community, such as victim offender panels, teen courts, competency building, enhanced accountability measures, restitution, and community service. The local plan must be directed in such a manner as to emphasize an individualized approach to providing services to juvenile offenders in an integrated community based system including probation as the broker of services. The plan must also detail the reduction in utilization of secure confinement. The local plan shall be limited to services and shall not include costs for:
            (i) capital expenditures;
            (ii) renovations or remodeling;
            (iii) personnel costs for probation.
    The local plan shall be submitted to the Department of Human Services.
    (c) A county or group of counties may develop an agreement with the Department of Human Services to reduce their number of commitments of juvenile offenders, excluding minors sentenced based upon a finding of guilt of first degree murder or an offense which is a Class X forcible felony as defined in the Criminal Code of 2012, to the Department of Juvenile Justice, and then use the savings to develop local programming for youth who would otherwise have been committed to the Department of Juvenile Justice. A county or group of counties shall agree to limit their commitments to 75% of the level of commitments from the average number of juvenile commitments for the past 3 years, and will receive the savings to redeploy for local programming for juveniles who would otherwise be held in confinement. For any county or group of counties with a decrease of juvenile commitments of at least 25%, based on the average reductions of the prior 3 years, which are chosen to participate or continue as sites, the Redeploy Illinois Oversight Board has the authority to reduce the required percentage of future commitments to achieve the purpose of this Section. The agreement shall set forth the following:
        (1) a Statement of the number and type of juvenile
    
offenders from the county who were held in secure confinement by the Illinois Department of Juvenile Justice or in county detention the previous year, and an explanation of which, and how many, of these offenders might be served through the proposed Redeploy Illinois Program for which the funds shall be used;
        (2) a Statement of the service needs of currently
    
confined juveniles;
        (3) a Statement of the type of services and programs
    
to provide for the individual needs of the juvenile offenders, and the research or evidence base that qualifies those services and programs as proven or promising practices;
        (4) a budget indicating the costs of each service or
    
program to be funded under the plan;
        (5) a summary of contracts and service agreements
    
indicating the treatment goals and number of juvenile offenders to be served by each service provider; and
        (6) a Statement indicating that the Redeploy Illinois
    
Program will not duplicate existing services and programs. Funds for this plan shall not supplant existing county funded programs.
    In a county with a population exceeding 2,000,000, the Redeploy Illinois Oversight Board may authorize the Department of Human Services to enter into an agreement with that county to reduce the number of commitments by the same percentage as is required by this Section of other counties, and with all of the same requirements of this Act, including reporting and evaluation, except that the agreement may encompass a clearly identifiable geographical subdivision of that county. The geographical subdivision may include, but is not limited to, a police district or group of police districts, a geographical area making up a court calendar or group of court calendars, a municipal district or group of municipal districts, or a municipality or group of municipalities.
    (d) (Blank).
    (d-5) A county or group of counties that does not have an approved Redeploy Illinois program, as described in subsection (b), and that has committed fewer than 10 Redeploy eligible youth to the Department of Juvenile Justice on average over the previous 3 years, may develop an individualized agreement with the Department of Human Services through the Redeploy Illinois program to provide services to youth to avoid commitment to the Department of Juvenile Justice. The agreement shall set forth the following:
        (1) a statement of the number and type of juvenile
    
offenders from the county who were at risk under any of the categories listed above during the 3 previous years, and an explanation of which of these offenders would be served through the proposed Redeploy Illinois program for which the funds shall be used, or through individualized contracts with existing Redeploy programs in neighboring counties;
        (2) a statement of the service needs;
        (3) a statement of the type of services and programs
    
to provide for the individual needs of the juvenile offenders, and the research or evidence that qualifies those services and programs as proven or promising practices;
        (4) a budget indicating the costs of each service or
    
program to be funded under the plan;
        (5) a summary of contracts and service agreements
    
indicating the treatment goals and number of juvenile offenders to be served by each service provider; and
        (6) a statement indicating that the Redeploy Illinois
    
program will not duplicate existing services and programs. Funds for this plan shall not supplant existing county funded programs.
    (e) The Department of Human Services shall be responsible for the following:
        (1) Reviewing each Redeploy Illinois Program plan for
    
compliance with standards established for such plans. A plan may be approved as submitted, approved with modifications, or rejected. No plan shall be considered for approval if the circuit or county is not in full compliance with all regulations, standards and guidelines pertaining to the delivery of basic probation services as established by the Supreme Court.
        (2) Monitoring on a continual basis and evaluating
    
annually both the program and its fiscal activities in all counties receiving an allocation under the Redeploy Illinois Program. Any program or service that has not met the goals and objectives of its contract or service agreement shall be subject to denial for funding in subsequent years. The Department of Human Services shall evaluate the effectiveness of the Redeploy Illinois Program in each circuit or county. In determining the future funding for the Redeploy Illinois Program under this Act, the evaluation shall include, as a primary indicator of success, a decreased number of confinement days for the county's juvenile offenders.
    (f) Any Redeploy Illinois Program allocations not applied for and approved by the Department of Human Services shall be available for redistribution to approved plans for the remainder of that fiscal year. Any county that invests local moneys in the Redeploy Illinois Program shall be given first consideration for any redistribution of allocations. Jurisdictions participating in Redeploy Illinois that exceed their agreed upon level of commitments to the Department of Juvenile Justice shall reimburse the Department of Corrections for each commitment above the agreed upon level.
    (g) Implementation of Redeploy Illinois.
        (1) Oversight of Redeploy Illinois.
