Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Unified Code of Corrections. Provides that the Department of Corrections shall not make possession of a Firearm Owner's Identification Card a condition of continued employment as a correctional officer if the correctional officer's Firearm Owner's Identification Card is revoked or seized because the correctional officer has been a patient of a mental health facility and the correctional officer has not been determined to pose a clear and present danger to himself, herself, or others as determined by a physician, clinical psychologist, or qualified examiner. Provides that nothing in the new provisions shall otherwise impair the Department's ability to determine a correctional officer's fitness for duty. Provides that a collective bargaining agreement already in effect on this issue on the effective date of the amendatory Act cannot be modified, but on or after the effective date of the amendatory Act, the Department cannot require a Firearm Owner's Identification Card as a condition of continued employment in a collective bargaining agreement.
