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 405/5-405)
    Sec. 5-405. Duty of officer; admissions by minor.
    (1) A law enforcement officer who arrests a minor with a warrant shall immediately make a reasonable attempt to notify the parent or other person legally responsible for the minor's care or the person with whom the minor resides that the minor has been arrested and where he or she is being held. The minor shall be delivered without unnecessary delay to the court or to the place designated by rule or order of court for the reception of minors.
    (2) A law enforcement officer who arrests a minor without a warrant under Section 5-401 shall, if the minor is not released, immediately make a reasonable attempt to notify the parent or other person legally responsible for the minor's care or the person with whom the minor resides that the minor has been arrested and where the minor is being held; and the law enforcement officer shall without unnecessary delay take the minor to the nearest juvenile police officer designated for these purposes in the county of venue or shall surrender the minor to a juvenile police officer in the city or village where the offense is alleged to have been committed. If a minor is taken into custody for an offense which would be a misdemeanor if committed by an adult, the law enforcement officer, upon determining the true identity of the minor, may release the minor to the parent or other person legally responsible for the minor's care or the person with whom the minor resides. If a minor is so released, the law enforcement officer shall promptly notify a juvenile police officer of the circumstances of the custody and release.
    (3) The juvenile police officer may take one of the following actions:
        (a) station adjustment and release of the minor;
        (b) release the minor to his or her parents and refer
    
the case to Juvenile Court;
        (c) if the juvenile police officer reasonably
    
believes that there is an urgent and immediate necessity to keep the minor in custody, the juvenile police officer shall deliver the minor without unnecessary delay to the court or to the place designated by rule or order of court for the reception of minors;
        (d) any other appropriate action with consent of the
    
minor or a parent.
    (4) The factors to be considered in determining whether to release or keep a minor in custody shall include:
        (a) the nature of the allegations against the minor;
        (b) the minor's history and present situation;
        (c) the history of the minor's family and the
    
family's present situation;
        (d) the educational and employment status of the
    
minor;
        (e) the availability of special resource or community
    
services to aid or counsel the minor;
        (f) the minor's past involvement with and progress in
    
social programs;
        (g) the attitude of complainant and community toward
    
the minor; and
        (h) the present attitude of the minor and family.
    (5) The records of law enforcement officers concerning all minors taken into custody under this Act shall be maintained separate from the records of arrests of adults and may not be inspected by or disclosed to the public except pursuant to Section 5-901 and Section 5-905.
