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.

    Sec. 14. At any time, in the opinion of the Warden, the lives or health of the prisoners are endangered or the security of the penal institution is threatened, to such a degree as to render their removal necessary, the Warden may cause an individual prisoner or a group of prisoners to be removed to some suitable place within the county, or to the jail of some convenient county, where they may be confined until they can be safely returned to the place whence they were removed. No prisoner charged with a felony shall be removed by the warden to a Mental Health or Developmental Disabilities facility as defined in the Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities Code, except as specifically authorized by Article 104 or 115 of the Code of Criminal Procedure of 1963, or the Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities Code. Any place to which the prisoners are so removed shall, during their imprisonment there, be deemed, as to such prisoners, a prison of the county in which they were originally confined; but, they shall be under the care, government and direction of the Warden of the jail of the county in which they are confined. When any criminal detainee is transferred to the custody of the Department of Human Services, the warden shall supply the Department of Human Services with all of the legally available information as described in 20 Ill.

the court;

        (7) the number of days, if any, which the
    
criminal detainee has been in custody and for which he or she is entitled to credit against the sentence. Certification of jail credit time shall include any time served in the custody of the Illinois Department of Human Services-Division of Mental Health or Division of Developmental Disabilities, time served in another state or federal jurisdiction, and any time served while on probation or periodic imprisonment;
        (8) State's Attorney's statement of facts,
    
including the facts and circumstances of the offenses for which the criminal detainee was committed, any other factual information accessible to the State's Attorney prior to the commitment to the Department relative to the criminal detainee's habits, associates, disposition, and reputation or other information that may aid the Department during the custody of the criminal detainee. If the statement is unavailable at the time of delivery, the statement must be transmitted within 10 days after receipt by the clerk of the court;
        (9) any medical or mental health records or
    
summaries;
        (10) any victim impact statements;

directs the clerk to transmit;
        (13) a record of the criminal detainee's time
    
and his or her behavior and conduct while in the custody of the county. Any action on the part of the criminal detainee that might affect his or her security status with the Department, including, but not limited to, an escape attempt, participation in a riot, or a suicide attempt should be included in the record; and
        (14) the mittimus or sentence (judgment)
    
order that provides the following information:
            (A) the criminal case number, names and
        
citations of the offenses, judge's name, date of sentence, and, if applicable, whether the sentences are to be served concurrently or consecutively;

and
            (C) if applicable, the calculation of
        
pre-trial program sentence credit awarded by the court to the criminal detainee, including, at a minimum, identification of the type of pre-trial program the criminal detainee participated in and the number of eligible days the court finds the criminal detainee spent in the pre-trial program multiplied by the calculation factor of 0.5 for the total court-awarded credit.

730 ILCS 125/17

    (730 ILCS 125/17) (from Ch. 75, par. 117)
    Sec. 17. Bedding, clothing, fuel, and medical aid; reimbursement for medical expenses. The Warden of the jail shall furnish necessary bedding, clothing, fuel, and medical services for all prisoners under his charge, and keep an accurate account of the same. When services that result in qualified medical expenses are required by any person held in custody, the county, private hospital, physician or any public agency which provides such services shall be entitled to obtain reimbursement from the county for the cost of such services. The county board of a county may adopt an ordinance or resolution providing for reimbursement for the cost of those services at the Department of Healthcare and Family Services' rates for medical assistance. To the extent that such person is reasonably able to pay for such care, including reimbursement from any insurance program or from other medical benefit programs available to such person, he or she shall reimburse the county or arresting authority. If such person has already been determined eligible for medical assistance under the Illinois Public Aid Code at the time the person is detained, the cost of such services, to the extent such cost exceeds $500, shall be reimbursed by the Department of Healthcare and Family Services under that Code. A reimbursement under any public or private program authorized by this Section shall be paid to the county or arresting authority to the same extent as would have been obtained had the services been rendered in a non-custodial environment.
    The sheriff or his or her designee may cause an application for medical assistance under the Illinois Public Aid Code to be completed for an arrestee who is a hospital inpatient. If such arrestee is determined eligible, he or she shall receive medical assistance under the Code for hospital inpatient services only. An arresting authority shall be responsible for any qualified medical expenses relating to the arrestee until such time as the arrestee is placed in the custody of the sheriff. However, the arresting authority shall not be so responsible if the arrest was made pursuant to a request by the sheriff. When medical expenses are required by any person held in custody, the county shall be entitled to obtain reimbursement from the County Jail Medical Costs Fund to the extent moneys are available from the Fund. To the extent that the person is reasonably able to pay for that care, including reimbursement from any insurance program or from other medical benefit programs available to the person, he or she shall reimburse the county.
    The county shall be entitled to a $10 fee for each conviction or order of supervision for a criminal violation, other than a petty offense or business offense. The fee shall be taxed as costs to be collected from the defendant, if possible, upon conviction or entry of an order of supervision. The fee shall not be considered a part of the fine for purposes of any reduction in the fine.
    All such fees collected shall be deposited by the county in a fund to be established and known as the County Jail Medical Costs Fund. Moneys in the Fund shall be used solely for reimbursement to the county of costs for medical expenses and administration of the Fund.
    For the purposes of this Section, "arresting authority" means a unit of local government, other than a county, which employs peace officers and whose peace officers have made the arrest of a person. For the purposes of this Section, "qualified medical expenses" include medical and hospital services but do not include (i) expenses incurred for medical care or treatment provided to a person on account of a self-inflicted injury incurred prior to or in the course of an arrest, (ii) expenses incurred for medical care or treatment provided to a person on account of a health condition of that person which existed prior to the time of his or her arrest, or (iii) expenses for hospital inpatient services for arrestees enrolled for medical assistance under the Illinois Public Aid Code.

Notwithstanding any other statute, directive, or administrative regulation, when a pregnant female prisoner is brought to a hospital from a county jail for the purpose of delivering her baby, no handcuffs, shackles, or restraints of any kind may be used during her transport to a medical facility for the purpose of delivering her baby. Under no circumstances may leg irons or shackles or waist shackles be used on any pregnant female prisoner who is in labor. Upon the pregnant female prisoner's entry to the hospital delivery room, a county correctional officer must be posted immediately outside the delivery room. The Sheriff must provide for adequate personnel to monitor the pregnant female prisoner during her transport to and from the hospital and during her stay at the hospital.

730 ILCS 125/17.10

    (730 ILCS 125/17.10)
    Sec. 17.10. Requirements in connection with HIV/AIDS.
    (a) In each county other than Cook, during the medical admissions exam, the warden of the jail, a correctional officer at the jail, or a member of the jail medical staff must provide the prisoner with appropriate written information concerning human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). The Department of Public Health and community-based organizations certified to provide HIV/AIDS testing must provide these informational materials to the warden at no cost to the county. The warden, a correctional officer, or a member of the jail medical staff must inform the prisoner of the option of being tested for infection with HIV by a certified local community-based agency or other available medical provider at no charge to the prisoner.
    (b) In Cook County, during the medical admissions exam, an employee of the Cook County Health & Hospitals System must provide the prisoner with appropriate information in writing, verbally or by video or other electronic means concerning human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) and must also provide the prisoner with option of testing for infection with HIV or any other identified causative agent of AIDS, as well as counseling in connection with such testing. The Cook County Health & Hospitals System may provide the inmate with opt-out human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) testing, as defined in Section 4 of the AIDS Confidentiality Act, unless the inmate refuses. If opt-out HIV testing is conducted, the Cook County Health & Hospitals System shall place signs in English, Spanish, and other languages as needed in multiple, highly visible locations in the area where HIV testing is conducted informing inmates that they will be tested for HIV unless they refuse, and refusal or acceptance of testing shall be documented in the inmate's medical record. Pre-test information shall be provided to the inmate and informed consent obtained from the inmate as required in subsection (q) of Section 3 and Section 5 of the AIDS Confidentiality Act. The Cook County Health & Hospitals System shall follow procedures established by the Department of Public Health to conduct HIV testing and testing to confirm positive HIV test results. All aspects of HIV testing shall comply with the requirements of the AIDS Confidentiality Act, including delivery of test results, as determined by the Cook County Health & Hospitals System in consultation with the Illinois Department of Public Health. Nothing in this Section shall require the Cook County Health & Hospitals System to offer HIV testing to inmates who are known to be infected with HIV. The Department of Public Health and community-based organizations certified to provide HIV/AIDS testing may provide these informational materials to the Bureau at no cost to the county. The testing provided under this subsection (b) shall consist of a test approved by the Illinois Department of Public Health to determine the presence of HIV infection, based upon recommendations of the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. If the test result is positive, a reliable supplemental test based upon recommendations of the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shall be administered.
    (c) In each county, the warden of the jail must make appropriate written information concerning HIV/AIDS available to every visitor to the jail. This information must include information concerning persons or entities to contact for local counseling and testing. The Department of Public Health and community-based organizations certified to provide HIV/AIDS testing must provide these informational materials to the warden at no cost to the office of the county sheriff.
    (d) Implementation of this Section is subject to appropriation.

    Sec. 19.5. Release of prisoners to law enforcement personnel or State's Attorney. The sheriff may adopt and implement a written policy that provides for the release of a person who is in the custody of the sheriff for any criminal or supposed criminal matter to sworn law enforcement personnel or to the State's Attorney for the purpose of furthering investigations into criminal matters that are unrelated to the criminal matter for which the person is held in custody. The written policy must, at a minimum, require that there be a written request, signed by an authorized agent of the law enforcement agency or State's Attorney office, to take custody of the prisoner and that the written request shall include the name of the individual authorized to take custody of the prisoner, the purpose and scope of the criminal matter under investigation, and a statement of the fact that the individual taking custody and agency they are employed by understand the limitation of the sheriff's liability as described in this Act. Upon the release of a person to law enforcement personnel or the State's Attorney under written policy of the sheriff, the sheriff shall not be liable for any injury of any kind, including but not limited to death, to either the person released or to any third party that occurs during the time period that the person is in custody of other law enforcement personnel or the State's Attorney unless the sheriff or a deputy sheriff, correctional guard, lockup keeper, or county employee is guilty of willful and wanton conduct that proximately caused the injury.

730 ILCS 125/20

    (730 ILCS 125/20) (from Ch. 75, par. 120)
    Sec. 20. Cost and expense; commissary fund.
    (a) The cost and expense of keeping, maintaining and furnishing the jail of each county, and of keeping and maintaining the prisoner thereof, except as otherwise provided by law, shall be paid from the county treasury, the account therefor being first settled and allowed by the county board.
    The county board may require convicted persons confined in its jail to reimburse the county for the expenses incurred by their incarceration to the extent of their ability to pay for such expenses. The warden of the jail shall establish by regulation criteria for a reasonable deduction from money credited to any account of an inmate to defray the costs to the county for an inmate's medical care. The State's Attorney of the county in which such jail is located may, if requested by the County Board, institute civil actions in the circuit court of the county in which the jail is located to recover from such convicted confined persons the expenses incurred by their confinement. The funds recovered shall be paid into the county treasury.
    (a-5) Upon notification from the Clerk of the Circuit Court of an outstanding fine, restitution, or costs imposed by the court on a jail inmate, the warden of the jail may, at any time prior to release of the inmate, deduct from money credited to any account of the inmate an amount to pay or reduce the outstanding balance. The warden of the jail shall establish by regulation criteria for deduction from money credited to any account of an inmate to pay or reduce the amount outstanding on a fine, restitution, or costs imposed by the court on the inmate. The regulation shall comply with any withholding restrictions otherwise provided by law. The inmate shall be provided with written notice of the amount of any deduction. There shall also be prominent notice by signage at any location where the warden of the jail or jail employees receive funds for deposit into an inmate's account, that funds in an inmate's account may be used to pay fines, restitution, or costs imposed on the inmate by a court. Any person providing funds for an inmate's account shall be notified in writing when the funds are provided, that funds in an inmate's account may be used to pay fines, restitution, or costs imposed on the inmate by a court.
    (b) When a prisoner is released from the county jail after the completion of his or her sentence and has money credited to his or her account in the commissary fund, the sheriff or a person acting on the authority of the sheriff must mail a check in the amount credited to the prisoner's account to the prisoner's last known address. If after 30 days from the date of mailing of the check, the check is returned undelivered, the sheriff must transmit the amount of the check to the county treasurer for deposit into the commissary fund. Nothing in this subsection (b) constitutes a forfeiture of the prisoner's right to claim the money accredited to his or her account after the 30-day period.

Whenever a prisoner is committed to the jail of one county for a criminal offense committed or charged to have been committed in another, or is transferred to another county for safekeeping or trial, the county in which the crime was committed, or charged to have been committed, shall pay the expenses of the keeping of such prisoner. In civil suits, the plaintiff or defendant shall pay the expenses, in the same manner as if the imprisonment had taken place in the same county where the suit was commenced.
    The County Board of the county in which the crime was committed, may require convicted prisoners transferred from such county to reimburse the county for the expenses incurred by their incarceration to the extent of their ability to pay for such expenses. The State's Attorney of the county which incurred the expenses, if authorized by the County Board, may institute civil actions in the circuit court of such county to recover from such convicted confined persons the expenses incurred by their confinement.

    Sec. 26. Detainees in immigration custody; religious worker access to jails.
    (a) Any county jail in the State of Illinois for which an intergovernmental agreement has been entered into with United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for detention of immigration-related detainees shall be required to provide to religious workers reasonable access to such jail. Such access shall be consistent with the safety, security, and the orderly operation of the facility.
    (b) For purposes of this Section, "reasonable access" means the ability of the religious worker to enter the jail facility to be available to meet with immigration detainees who wish to consult with the religious worker regarding their spiritual needs. Such access shall be at times set by the sheriff or his or her designee. The facility shall provide advance notice to the immigration detainees of the times during which religious workers shall be available for consultation under this Section, and shall not limit the access of detainees to such religious workers without good cause. Consultations with religious workers under this Section shall not be counted against the visitation time or number of visits to which a detainee is otherwise entitled under the facility's visitation policies.
    (c) The sheriff or his or her designee shall have the right to screen and approve individuals seeking access to immigration detainees at the facility under this Act.
