Illinois Compiled Statutes

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.

(Source: P.A. 102-4, eff. 4-27-21.)

410 ILCS 165/72-5

    (410 ILCS 165/72-5)
    Sec. 72-5. Legislative findings. In the State of Illinois, two-thirds of gun violence is related to suicide, and one-third is related to homicide, claiming approximately 12,000 lives a year. Violence has plagued communities, predominantly poor and distressed communities in urban settings, which have always treated violence as a criminal justice issue, instead of a public health issue. On February 21, 2018, Pastor Anthony Williams was informed that his son, Nehemiah William, had been shot to death. Due to this disheartening event, Pastor Anthony Williams reached out to State Representative Elizabeth "Lisa" Hernandez, urging that the issue of violence be treated as a public health crisis. In 2018, elected officials from all levels of government started a coalition to address violence as a public health crisis, with the assistance of faith-based organizations, advocates, and community members and held a statewide listening tour from August 2018 to April 2019. The listening tour consisted of stops on the South Side and West Side of Chicago, Maywood, Springfield, and East St. Louis, with a future scheduled visit in Danville. During the statewide listening sessions, community members actively discussed neighborhood safety, defining violence and how and why violence occurs in their communities. The listening sessions provided different solutions to address violence, however, all sessions confirmed a disconnect from the priorities of government and the needs of these communities.

410 ILCS 165/72-10

    (410 ILCS 165/72-10)
    Sec. 72-10. Study. The Department of Public Health and the Department of Human Services shall study how to create a process to identify high violence communities, also known as R3 (Restore, Reinvest, and Renew) areas, and prioritize State dollars to go to these communities to fund programs as well as community and economic development projects that would address the underlying causes of crime and violence.
    Due to a variety of reasons, including in particular the State's budget impasse, funds from multiple sources to establish such a comprehensive policy are subject to appropriation. Private philanthropic efforts will also be considered. Policies like R3 are needed in order to provide communities that have historically suffered from divestment, poverty, and incarceration with smart solutions that can solve the plague of structural violence that includes collective, interpersonal, and self-directed violence. Understanding structural violence helps explain the multiple and often intersecting forces that create and perpetuate these conditions on multiple levels. It is clear that violence is a public health problem that needs to be treated as such. Research has shown that when violence is treated in such a way that educates, fosters collaboration, and redirects the funding on a governmental level, its effects can be slowed or even halted, resulting in civility being brought to our communities in the State of Illinois. Research has shown that when violence is treated in such a way, then its effects can be slowed or even halted.
