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.

Therefore, the purpose of IPSAN is to continue the ALERTS, PIMS, and ALECS systems, which have been developed by the Authority, through the intergovernmental cooperation of local public safety agencies, including sheriffs' offices, municipal police departments, and firefighting agencies, which have been funded by local taxpayers through user's fees since 1986. The General Assembly also finds that development and future enhancements to public safety communications and management systems and the promotion of interoperability between all public safety disciplines are in the best of interest of the people of the State of Illinois.
