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.

20 ILCS 4026/5

    (20 ILCS 4026/5)
    Sec. 5. Legislative declaration. The General Assembly hereby declares that the comprehensive evaluation, treatment, and management of sex offenders who are subject to the supervision of the criminal or juvenile justice systems or mental health systems is necessary in order to work toward the elimination of recidivism by such offenders. Therefore, the General Assembly hereby creates a program which assists in the education and training of parole, probation, law enforcement, treatment providers and others involved in the management of sex offenders. This program will standardize the evaluation, treatment, and management of sex offenders at each stage of the criminal or juvenile justice systems or mental health systems so that those offenders will curtail recidivistic behavior and the protection of victims and potential victims will be enhanced. The General Assembly recognizes that some sex offenders cannot or will not respond to counseling and that, in creating the program described in this Act, the General Assembly does not intend to imply that all sex offenders can be successful in treatment.
