Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
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 Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

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.

55 ILCS 5/5-1136

    (55 ILCS 5/5-1136)
    Sec. 5-1136. Quotas prohibited. A county may not require a law enforcement officer to issue a specific number of citations within a designated period of time. This prohibition shall not affect the conditions of any federal or State grants or funds awarded to the county and used to fund traffic enforcement programs.
    A county may not, for purposes of evaluating a law enforcement officer's job performance, compare the number of citations issued by the law enforcement officer to the number of citations issued by any other law enforcement officer who has similar job duties. Nothing in this Section shall prohibit a county from evaluating a law enforcement officer based on the law enforcement officer's points of contact.
    For the purposes of this Section:
        (1) "Points of contact" means any quantifiable
contact made in the furtherance of the law enforcement officer's duties, including, but not limited to, the number of traffic stops completed, arrests, written warnings, and crime prevention measures. Points of contact shall not include either the issuance of citations or the number of citations issued by a law enforcement officer.
        (2) "Law enforcement officer" includes any sheriff,
undersheriff, deputy sheriff, county police officer, or other person employed by the county as a peace officer.
    A home rule unit may not establish requirements for or assess the performance of law enforcement officers in a manner inconsistent with this Section. This Section is a denial and limitation of home rule powers and functions under subsection (g) of Section 6 of Article VII of the Illinois Constitution.
