   pilot  program  in  DuPage,  Peoria  County,  East St. Louis, and Cook

   administer  the  program.   Requires  the  Division  to  establish  an      
   educational  program  for  probation  officers  who   will   supervise      
   offenders  in  the  pilot program.  Amends the Probation and Probation      
   Officers Act to require the Division to administer the  pilot  program
