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.

    (730 ILCS 5/3-2.5-5)
    Sec. 3-2.5-5. Purpose. The purpose of this Article is to create the Department of Juvenile Justice to provide treatment and services through a comprehensive continuum of individualized educational, vocational, social, emotional, and basic life skills to enable youth to avoid delinquent futures and become productive, fulfilled citizens. The Department shall embrace the legislative policy of the State to promote the philosophy of balanced and restorative justice set forth in Section 5-101 of the Juvenile Court Act of 1987.
    This amendatory Act of the 94th General Assembly transfers to the Department certain rights, powers, duties, and functions that were exercised by the Juvenile Division of the Department of Corrections before the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 94th General Assembly.
