    AN ACT concerning courts.
 
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
 
    Section 5. The Supreme Court Act is amended by changing
Section 11 as follows:
 
    (705 ILCS 5/11)  (from Ch. 37, par. 16)
    Sec. 11. Marshals.
    (a) The office of marshal for the Supreme Court is hereby
created, such marshals to be selected by the Supreme Court,
and the duties of such marshals shall be to attend upon its
sittings and to perform such other duties, under the order and
direction of the said court, as are usually performed by
sheriffs of courts. The salary of such marshals shall be fixed
by the judges of the Supreme Court, such salary to be payable
from the State treasury, upon bills of particulars, signed by
any one of the judges of the Supreme Court.
    (b) Marshals are peace officers and have all the powers
possessed by police officers in cities and by sheriffs.
Marshals may exercise these powers throughout the State. No
marshal has peace officer status or may exercise police powers
unless: (i) he or she successfully completes the basic police
training course mandated and approved by the Illinois Law
Enforcement Training Standards Board; or (ii) the Illinois Law
Enforcement Training Standards Board waives the training
requirement by reason of the marshal's prior law enforcement
experience or training or both.
    (c) The office of marshal for the Supreme Court may also
employ court security officers to be responsible for
maintaining the security of any courthouse or courtroom
occupied by the Supreme or Appellate Court of this State. A
court security officer has the authority to arrest in the same
manner as authorized by similarly certified officers of a
county sheriff. However, the arrest powers of the court
security officer are limited to the performance of the
official duties of the court security officer. A court
security officer who is trained and qualified as permitted by
law may carry a weapon at his or her place of employment and to
and from his or her place of employment. No court security
officer authorized under this Section may exercise arrest
powers or carry a firearm unless: (i) he or she successfully
completes the basic court security officer training course
mandated and approved by the Illinois Law Enforcement Training
Standards Board; or (ii) the Illinois Law Enforcement Training
Standards Board waives the training requirement by reason of
the individual's prior experience or training or both.
