The Illinois Criminal Offense Guide was created to serve as a tool for Illinois Police Officers and Prosecutors to assist them in the performance of their law enforcement duties. We have tried to make the information found in this Guide concise and easily accessible.
However, as the name of this publication implies, it is only intended to be used as a guide. ALWAYS refer to the appropriate Illinois Compiled Statutes and Illinois Case Law to determine the appropriate law with reference to your particular situation.
We believe that this work will assist you in the performance of your law enforcement duties. If you have any comments or questions concerning this work, please feel free to contact us. Your suggestions on how to improve the Illinois Criminal Offense Guide will be greatly appreciated.
