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 405/6-4) (from Ch. 37, par. 806-4)
    Sec. 6-4. Psychiatric Departments; counties under 1,000,000. (1) Any county having less than 1,000,000 inhabitants or any group of counties constituting a probation district may maintain a Psychiatric Department to render clinical services requested, authorized or ordered by the court. The Psychiatric Department may be required by the circuit court to render services to the court in other matters as well as in proceedings under this Act. In any county or probation district the Psychiatric Department may be established as a separate division of a more inclusive psychiatric department or of a comprehensive department of court services, with any appropriate divisional designation.
    (2) The chief judge of the circuit court shall appoint a professionally qualified person as Director of the Psychiatric Department established for any county or probation district in the circuit, to serve at his pleasure, and may authorize the Director to appoint such other personnel of the Department as the chief judge from time to time may determine are needed, to serve at the pleasure of the Director. The Director shall have general charge of the Department under the supervision of the chief judge or of some other judge designated by the chief judge for that purpose.
    (3) Appointments to any professional position in the Psychiatric Department must be made in accordance with standards prescribed by the chief judge in consultation with an advisory committee of his selection, composed of persons of recognized and outstanding ability in the practice of psychiatry or psychology or in the teaching or practice of social service and public welfare work.
