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.

730 ILCS 152/115

    (730 ILCS 152/115)
    Sec. 115. Sex offender database.
    (a) The Illinois State Police shall establish and maintain a Statewide Sex Offender Database for the purpose of identifying sex offenders and making that information available to the persons specified in Sections 120 and 125 of this Law. The Database shall be created from the Law Enforcement Agencies Data System (LEADS) established under Section 6 of the Intergovernmental Missing Child Recovery Act of 1984. The Illinois State Police shall examine its LEADS database for persons registered as sex offenders under the Sex Offender Registration Act and shall identify those who are sex offenders and shall add all the information, including photographs if available, on those sex offenders to the Statewide Sex Offender Database.
    (b) The Illinois State Police must make the information contained in the Statewide Sex Offender Database accessible on the Internet by means of a hyperlink labeled "Sex Offender Information" on the Department's World Wide Web home page. The Department must make the information contained in the Statewide Sex Offender Database searchable via a mapping system which identifies registered sex offenders living within 5 miles of an identified address. The Illinois State Police must update that information as it deems necessary.
    The Illinois State Police may require that a person who seeks access to the sex offender information submit biographical information about himself or herself before permitting access to the sex offender information. The Illinois State Police must promulgate rules in accordance with the Illinois Administrative Procedure Act to implement this subsection (b) and those rules must include procedures to ensure that the information in the database is accurate.
    (c) The Illinois State Police, Sex Offender Registration Unit, must develop and conduct training to educate all those entities involved in the Sex Offender Registration Program.
