04252017CM1305rSPRINGFIELD — Illinois could soon put more protections in place for victims and law enforcement officers from someone in a county jail or prison.

“We need to take proactive steps to ensure that victims of crimes and law enforcement officers that investigate those crimes don’t have to worry about someone taking revenge out on them,” State Senator Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant (D-Shorewood) said.

The measure, House Bill 619, would not allow a person in the custody of Department of Corrections or a county jail from requesting records with personal information of the victims or law enforcement officers unless it is relevant to the person’s case.

The measure passed the Senate without opposition and moves to the governor’s desk for his signature.
