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
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
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.

(Section scheduled to be repealed on December 31, 2021)
9-1-1 call transfer, forward, or relay.
(a) The General Assembly finds the following:
(1) Some 9-1-1 systems throughout this State do
not have a procedure in place to manually transfer, forward, or relay 9-1-1 calls originating within one 9-1-1 system's jurisdiction, but which should properly be answered and dispatched by another 9-1-1 system, to the appropriate 9-1-1 system for answering and dispatch of first responders.
(2) On January 1, 2016, the General Assembly gave
oversight authority of 9-1-1 systems to the Department of State Police.
(3) Since that date, the Department of State
Police has authorized individual 9-1-1 systems in counties and municipalities to implement and upgrade enhanced 9-1-1 systems throughout the State.
(b) The Department shall prepare a directory of all authorized 9-1-1 systems in the State. The directory shall include an emergency 24/7 10-digit telephone number for all primary public safety answering points located in each 9-1-1 system to which 9-1-1 calls from another jurisdiction can be transferred. This directory shall be made available to each 9-1-1 authority for its use in establishing standard operating procedures regarding calls outside its 9-1-1 jurisdiction.
(c) Each 9-1-1 system shall provide the Department with the following information:
(1) The name of the PSAP, a list of every
participating agency, and the county the PSAP is in, including college and university public safety entities.
(2) The 24/7 10-digit emergency telephone number
and email address for the dispatch agency to which 9-1-1 calls originating in another 9-1-1 jurisdiction can be transferred or by which the PSAP can be contacted via email to exchange information. Each 9-1-1 system shall provide the Department with any changes to the participating agencies and this number and email address immediately upon the change occurring. Each 9-1-1 system shall provide the PSAP information, the 24/7 10-digit emergency telephone number and email address to the Manager of the Department's 9-1-1 Program within 30 days of the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 100th General Assembly.
(3) The standard operating procedure describing
the manner in which the 9-1-1 system will transfer, forward, or relay 9-1-1 calls originating within its jurisdiction, but which should properly be answered and dispatched by another 9-1-1 system, to the appropriate 9-1-1 system. Each 9-1-1 system shall provide the standard operating procedures to the Manager of the Department's 9-1-1 Program within 180 days after the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 100th General Assembly.
