(c) In addition to any other penalties and liabilities, a
person who is convicted of violating any
Section of this Act, whose violation proximately caused any incident resulting in an appropriate emergency response, shall be assessed a fine of $2,500, payable to
the circuit clerk, who shall distribute the money
to the law enforcement agency responsible for the mitigation of the incident.
If the person has been previously
convicted of violating any Section of this Act,
the fine shall be $5,000 and the circuit clerk shall
distribute the money to the law enforcement agency
responsible for the mitigation of the incident.
In the event that more than one agency is
responsible for an arrest which does not require mitigation, the amount payable to law
enforcement agencies shall be shared equally. Any moneys
received by a law enforcement agency under this Section shall
be used for law enforcement expenses.
Any moneys collected for the Illinois State Police shall be remitted to the State Treasurer and deposited into the State Police Operations Assistance Fund.
