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.

705 ILCS 405/1-4.2

    (705 ILCS 405/1-4.2)
    Sec. 1-4.2. Trauma-sensitive transport.
    (a) The Department of Children and Family Services shall ensure the provision of trauma-sensitive transport to minors placed in its care in accordance with this Act. Notwithstanding any other law to the contrary, no minor shall be subjected to restraints, as defined in Section 4e of the Children and Family Services Act, during the provision of any transportation services provided or arranged by the Department of Children and Family Services or its contractual assigns.
    (b) The Department of Children and Family Services' application to the court for approval of an individualized trauma-sensitive transportation plan must include a copy of the plan developed in accordance with Section 4e of the Children and Family Services Act and the written approval of the Department as required by paragraph (2) of subsection (e) of Section 4e of the Children and Family Services Act.
    (c) When considering whether to approve the individualized trauma-sensitive transportation plan, the court shall consider the minor's best interest and the following additional factors: the reason for the transport, the type of placement the minor is being transported from and to, the anticipated length of travel, the clinical needs of the minor, including any medical or emotional needs, any available less restrictive alternatives, and any other factor the court deems relevant. The court may require amendments to the minor's trauma-sensitive individualized transportation plan based on written findings of fact that the plan, as written, is not in the minor's best interest.
