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. 7.1. Sexual assault nurse examiner pilot program.

The General Assembly finds that the compassionate treatment of sexual assault victims in hospital emergency rooms is necessary to help alleviate the suffering of sexual assault victims.

    The General Assembly intends to create a pilot program to establish 4 sexual assault nurse examiner (SANE) projects in the State of Illinois. For each project, specially trained sexual assault nurse examiners or specially trained sexual assault physician examiners will provide health assessments and collect forensic evidence from sexual assault victims in the emergency room.

forensic evidence collection for sexual assault victims by a trained sexual assault nurse examiner or sexual assault physician examiner in a hospital emergency room as part of the provision of hospital emergency services.

For each program, video and audio experts shall install equipment and train participating law enforcement agencies to electronically record custodial interviews at their respective police stations. Participating law enforcement agencies shall choose how to use the equipment in cooperation with the local State's Attorney's office. The participating law enforcement agencies may choose to electronically record interviews of suspects for offenses other than first degree murder if they adopt local protocols in cooperation with the local State's Attorney's office.
    (b) Definitions. In this Section:
        (1) "Electronically record" means to memorialize by
    
video and audio electronic equipment.
        (2) "Custodial interviews" means interviews of
    
suspects during first degree murder investigations or other investigations established by local protocol by law enforcement authorities that take place at the police station.

interviews of suspects during first degree murder investigations by video and audio means.

video and audio recordings.
    (d) Each of the 4 pilot programs established by the Authority shall be in existence for a minimum of 2 years after its establishment under this Act.
