Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process.
Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes,
statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect.
If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has
not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already
been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes
made to the current law.
(20 ILCS 1605/21.10)
Scratch-off for State police memorials.
(a) The Department shall offer a special instant scratch-off game for the benefit of State police memorials. The game shall commence on January 1, 2019 or as soon thereafter, at the discretion of the Director, as is reasonably practical. The operation of the game shall be governed by this Act and any rules adopted by the Department.
(b) The net revenue from the State police memorials scratch-off game shall be deposited into the Criminal Justice Information Projects Fund and distributed equally, as soon as practical but at least on a monthly basis, to the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation Fund, the Police Memorial Committee Fund, and the Illinois State Police Memorial Park Fund. Moneys transferred to the funds under this Section shall be used, subject to appropriation, to fund grants for building and maintaining memorials and parks; holding annual memorial commemorations; giving scholarships to children of officers killed or catastrophically injured in the line of duty, or those interested in pursuing a career in law enforcement; providing financial assistance to police officers and their families when a police officer is killed or injured in the line of duty; and providing financial assistance to officers for the purchase or replacement of bulletproof vests to be used in the line of duty.
As used in this subsection, "net revenue" means the total amount for which tickets have been sold less the sum of the amount paid out in the prizes and to retailers, and
direct and estimated administrative expenses of the Department solely related to the scratch-off game under this Section.
(c) During the time that tickets are sold for the State police memorials scratch-off game, the Department shall not unreasonably diminish the efforts devoted to marketing any other instant scratch-off lottery game.
(d) The Department may adopt any rules necessary to implement and administer the provisions of this Section.
