Illinois Compiled Statutes
Information maintained by the Legislative
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

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.

basis, key information related to firearms used in the
commission of crimes in this State, including, but not limited
to: reports on crimes committed with firearms, locations where
the crimes occurred, the number of persons killed or injured in
the commission of the crimes, the state where the firearms used

(b) The Department shall study, on a regular and ongoing basis, and compile reports on the number of Firearm Owner's Identification Card checks to determine firearms trafficking or straw purchase patterns. The Department shall, to the extent not inconsistent with law, share such reports and underlying data with academic centers, foundations, and law enforcement agencies studying firearms trafficking, provided that personally identifying information is protected. For purposes of this subsection (b), a Firearm Owner's Identification Card number is not personally identifying information, provided that no other personal information of the card holder is attached to the record. The Department may create and attach an alternate unique identifying number to each Firearm Owner's Identification Card number, instead of releasing the Firearm Owner's Identification Card number itself.
(c) Each department, office, division, and agency of this
State shall, to the extent not inconsistent with law, cooperate
fully with the Department and furnish the
Department with all relevant information and assistance on a
timely basis as is necessary to accomplish the purpose of this
Act. The Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority shall submit the information required in subsection (a) of this Section to the Department of State Police, and any other information as the Department may request, to assist the Department in carrying out its duties under this Act.
