    AN ACT concerning local government.
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
    Section 5. The Counties Code is amended by changing Section
3-6019 as follows:
    (55 ILCS 5/3-6019)  (from Ch. 34, par. 3-6019)
    Sec. 3-6019. Duties of sheriff; office quarters and hours.
Sheriffs shall serve and execute, within their respective
counties, and return all warrants, process, orders and
judgments of every description that may be legally directed or
delivered to them. A sheriff of a county with a population of
less than 1,000,000 may employ civilian personnel to serve
process in civil matters. If an arrest warrant upon complaint
under Section 107-9 of the Code of Criminal Procedure of 1963,
or a warrant of arrest due to failure to appear under Section
107-12 of the Code, originated from a law enforcement agency
other than the county sheriff's office, then the county sheriff
of a county with a population of more than 600,000 may require
that law enforcement agency to store and maintain the warrant.
That law enforcement agency is responsible for entering the
warrant into the Illinois Law Enforcement Agencies Data System
(LEADS) and the National Crime Information Center Database
(NCIC). The county sheriff may require the originating law
enforcement agency to arrange for transportation of the wanted
person to the county jail. Originating agencies may contract
with the county sheriff or another law enforcement agency to
store, maintain, and provide transportation of the wanted
person to the county jail. Any law enforcement agency or
regional dispatch center may act as holder of the warrant for
an originating agency that has no telecommunications
    Each sheriff shall keep and maintain his or her office at
the county seat of the county for which he or she is the
sheriff, and shall in counties having a population of less than
500,000 keep his or her office open and attend to the duties
thereof from 8 o'clock in the forenoon to 5 o'clock in the
afternoon of each working day, excepting such days and half
days as, under any law, are or may be legal holidays, or half
holidays. The hours of opening and closing of the office of the
sheriff may be changed and otherwise fixed and determined by
the county board of such county. Such action taken by the
county board shall be by an appropriate resolution passed at a
regular meeting.
