Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Children and Family Services Act. Requires the Illinois Juvenile Justice Commission to develop a plan to ensure adequate availability of alternatives to reduce the use of detention and prevent deeper justice system involvement for children. Requires the Commission to explore and document the availability of services and support for families with children ages 10 through 12 in contact with the State's juvenile justice system and to make recommendations to the Governor and General Assembly to address any gaps in services, support, and resources for these children and families. Requires the Commission, when developing the plan, to consider certain issues related to children and families in contact with the juvenile justice system, including, but not limited to: (i) strategies to eliminate racial disparities in the provision of community-based services and support to children and families in contact with the State's juvenile justice system; (ii) the creation of specially licensed foster homes and other placement resources to be available to children and families in need of out-of-home placement; (iii) child welfare responses to children and youth in contact with the juvenile justice system to eliminate systemic removal of abused or neglected children due to juvenile justice system involvement; and other matters. Requires the Commission to issue an initial report of its findings no later than January 1, 2023, and a final report with findings and recommendations no later than July 1, 2023. Requires the Commission to plan and report, no later than September 1, 2024, on the implementation of these same provisions for juveniles older than 12 year of age. Effective immediately.
