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.

    Sec. 10. Evidence-based programming.
    (a) Purpose. Research and practice have identified new strategies and policies that can result in a significant reduction in recidivism rates and the successful local reintegration of offenders. The purpose of this Section is to ensure that State and local agencies direct their resources to services and programming that have been demonstrated to be effective in reducing recidivism and reintegrating offenders into the locality.
    (b) Evidence-based programming in local supervision.
        (1) The Parole Division of the Department of
    
Corrections and the Prisoner Review Board shall adopt policies, rules, and regulations that, within the first year of the adoption, validation, and utilization of the statewide, standardized risk assessment tool described in this Act, result in at least 25% of supervised individuals being supervised in accordance with evidence-based practices; within 3 years of the adoption, validation, and utilization of the statewide, standardized risk assessment tool result in at least 50% of supervised individuals being supervised in accordance with evidence-based practices; and within 5 years of the adoption, validation, and utilization of the statewide, standardized risk assessment tool result in at least 75% of supervised individuals being supervised in accordance with evidence-based practices. The policies, rules, and regulations shall:
            (A) Provide for a standardized individual
        
case plan that follows the offender through the criminal justice system (including in-prison if the supervised individual is in prison) that is:
                (i) Based on the assets of the
            
individual as well as his or her risks and needs identified through the assessment tool as described in this Act.
                (ii) Comprised of treatment and
            
supervision services appropriate to achieve the purpose of this Act.
                (iii) Consistently updated, based on
            
program participation by the supervised individual and other behavior modification exhibited by the supervised individual.
            (B) Concentrate resources and services on
        
high-risk offenders.
            (C) Provide for the use of evidence-based
        
programming related to education, job training, cognitive behavioral therapy, and other programming designed to reduce criminal behavior.
            (D) Establish a system of graduated
        
responses.
                (i) The system shall set forth a menu
            
of presumptive responses for the most common types of supervision violations.
                (ii) The system shall be guided by the
            
model list of intermediate sanctions created by the Probation Services Division of the State of Illinois pursuant to subsection (1) of Section 15 of the Probation and Probation Officers Act and the system of intermediate sanctions created by the Chief Judge of each circuit court pursuant to Section 5-6-1 of the Unified Code of Corrections.
                (iii) The system of responses shall
            
take into account factors such as the severity of the current violation; the supervised individual's risk level as determined by a validated assessment tool described in this Act; the supervised individual's assets; his or her previous criminal record; and the number and severity of any previous supervision violations.
                (iv) The system shall also define
            
positive reinforcements that supervised individuals may receive for compliance with conditions of supervision.
                (v) Response to violations should be
            
swift and certain and should be imposed as soon as practicable but no longer than 3 working days of detection of the violation behavior.
        (2) Conditions of local supervision (probation
    
and mandatory supervised release). Conditions of local supervision whether imposed by a sentencing judge or the Prisoner Review Board shall be imposed in accordance with the offender's risks, assets, and needs as identified through the assessment tool described in this Act.
        (3) The Department of Corrections and the Prisoner
    
Review Board shall annually publish an exemplar copy of any evidence-based assessments, questionnaires, or other instruments used to set conditions of release.

        (1) The Department of Corrections shall adopt
    
policies, rules, and regulations that, within the first year of the adoption, validation, and utilization of the statewide, standardized risk assessment tool described in this Act, result in at least 25% of incarcerated individuals receiving services and programming in accordance with evidence-based practices; within 3 years of the adoption, validation, and utilization of the statewide, standardized risk assessment tool result in at least 50% of incarcerated individuals receiving services and programming in accordance with evidence-based practices; and within 5 years of the adoption, validation, and utilization of the statewide, standardized risk assessment tool result in at least 75% of incarcerated individuals receiving services and programming in accordance with evidence-based practices. The policies, rules, and regulations shall:
            (A) Provide for the use and development of
        
a case plan based on the risks, assets, and needs identified through the assessment tool as described in this Act. The case plan should be used to determine in-prison programming; should be continuously updated based on program participation by the prisoner and other behavior modification exhibited by the prisoner; and should be used when creating the case plan described in subsection (b).
            (B) Provide for the use of evidence-based
        
programming related to education, job training, cognitive behavioral therapy and other evidence-based programming.
