Provides that each county, or any group of contiguous counties under an intergovernmental agreement or, in counties having a population of 3,000,000 or more, any township or group of those townships may, at the initiative of any State's Attorney, Public Defender, court services director, probation officer, county board member, regional superintendent of schools, sheriff, chief of police, judge serving in a juvenile court within the jurisdiction, or governing body of any Redeploy Illinois site serving any part of that area (rather than each county or group of counties pursuant to an intergovernmental agreement) establish a juvenile justice council. Provides that the Public Defender shall also designate a representative to serve on the council. Provides that additional members appointed to the council by the chairperson shall be with the advice and consent of the council. Provides that the additional members may include a judge who hears juvenile cases in the jurisdiction in which the council sits, community youth service providers, faith based organizations, the State or local board of education, any family violence coordinating council, any domestic violence agency, any children's advocacy center, any serious and habitual offender comprehensive action program, the Department of Human Services, the Chamber of Commerce, any director of court services, and local justice involved youth. Provides that the number of voting members of any juvenile justice council shall not exceed 21. Deletes a provision that the chairperson shall appoint, whenever possible, a local Chief of Police and a representative of a community youth service provider to the council. Provides that the juvenile justice council shall meet monthly (rather than from time to time but no less than semi-annually) for the purpose of encouraging the initiation of, or supporting ongoing, interagency cooperation and programs to address juvenile delinquency and juvenile crime. Provides that in counties having a population of 3,000,000 or more, the juvenile justice council shall provide for local area council participation in its by-laws. Deletes a provision that the duties of the council are to provide a forum for the presentation of interagency recommendations and the resolution of disagreements relating to the contents of the county interagency agreement or the performance by the parties of their respective obligations under the agreement. Includes in the duties of the council: (1) facilitating community based collaboration and perspective on oversight, research, and evaluation of activities, programs, and policies directed towards and impacting the lives of juveniles; (2) planning for and supporting applications for Redeploy Illinois, and development of funding for screening, assessment, and risk-appropriate, evidence-informed services to reduce commitments to the Department of Juvenile Justice; and (3) planning for and supporting the development of funding for screening, assessment, and risk-appropriate, evidence-informed services to youth reentering the community from detention in a county detention center or commitment from the Department of Juvenile Justice. Provides that a council which is the sole council serving any part of the area of an established Redeploy Illinois site may, in its discretion, and at the request of the Redeploy Illinois governing body of the site, undertake and maintain governance of the site under the Probation and Probation Officers Act.
