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.

    (70 ILCS 1205/8-23a)
    Sec. 8-23a. Application for volunteers; disclosure of child sex offenses; penalty for failure to disclose.
    (a) For purposes of this Section:
    "Child sex offender" has the meaning provided in paragraph (1) of subsection (d) of Section 11-9.3 of the Criminal Code of 2012.
    "Volunteer" means any individual who without compensation or benefits reports to, and is under the direct supervision of, a park district's administrative staff and provides personal services to a park district recreational program that is offered to children.
    (b) Every park district shall require volunteers to complete an application prior to beginning any work as a volunteer. The application shall include, but shall not be limited to, a question for the applicant to answer concerning whether they have been convicted of or found to be a child sex offender. If a volunteer is under 18 years of age, the volunteer's parent or legal guardian may complete the application on behalf of the volunteer. No park district shall knowingly engage a volunteer who has been convicted of or found to be a child sex offender and shall terminate the services of the volunteer upon discovery of such an offender.
    (c) If a current volunteer with a park district is convicted of or found to be a child sex offender, the volunteer shall immediately disclose the conviction or finding to the park district.
