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.

40 ILCS 5/3-109.1

    (40 ILCS 5/3-109.1) (from Ch. 108 1/2, par. 3-109.1)
    Sec. 3-109.1. Chief of police.
    (a) Except as provided in subsection (a-5), beginning January 1, 1990, any person who is employed as the chief of police of a "participating municipality" as defined in Section 7-106 of this Code, may elect to participate in the Illinois Municipal Retirement Fund rather than in a fund created under this Article 3. Except as provided in subsection (b), this election shall be irrevocable, and shall be filed in writing with the Board of the Illinois Municipal Retirement Fund.
    (a-5) On or after January 1, 2019, a person may not elect to participate in the Illinois Municipal Retirement Fund with respect to his or her employment as the chief of police of a participating municipality, unless that person became a participating employee in the Illinois Municipal Retirement Fund before January 1, 2019.
    (b) Until January 1, 1999, a chief of police who has elected under this Section to participate in IMRF rather than a fund created under this Article may elect to rescind that election and transfer his or her participation to the police pension fund established under this Article by the employing municipality. The chief must notify the boards of trustees of both funds in writing of his or her decision to rescind the election and transfer participation. A chief of police who transfers participation under this subsection (b) shall not be deemed ineligible to participate in the police pension fund by reason of having failed to apply within the 3-month period specified in Section 3-106.
