Short description: 
CRIM PRO-EAVESDRPPNG-EMERGNCY                                              

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Code of Criminal Procedure of 1963.  Provides that  an      
   electronic  criminal  surveillance officer specially designated by the      
   State's Attorney may intercept a private oral communication  before  a      
   court  order  authorizing  the  interception  is  issued under certain      
   emergency situations if an application for the order is filed with the      
   chief judge within 48 hours after interception  of  the  communication      
   begins.   Provides  that  the  order  is  retroactive  to the time the      
   interception began to occur (current law requires the State's Attorney      
   to obtain oral approval for the interception). Provides that if  there      
   is  at  least  one electronic criminal surveillance officer present at      
   the scene  of  the  emergency  situation,  any  other  police  officer      
   involved  in  the  response to the emergency is authorized to overhear      
   any oral communication intercepted. Effective immediately.
