Name: Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority - RG 411
Variant Name: Criminal Justice Information Council

Historical Note:

The Illinois Criminal Justice Information Council was created by an executive order of the Governor in 1977 to promote the orderly development of criminal justice information and to provide uniform data for the more efficient management of law enforcement efforts, to monitor the operation of existing criminal justice information systems in order to protect the constitutional rights and privacy of individuals about whom criminal history record information has been collected, to provide an effective administrative forum for the protection of the rights of individuals concerning criminal history record information, and to issue regulations, guidelines, and procedures which insure the privacy and security of criminal history record information consistent with state and federal laws. It was composed of seven members who were appointed by the Governor and who served at his pleasure (Executive Order No. 77-7, P.A. 81-, pp. 5203-5205).

A Governor's executive order issued in 1982 abolished the council in 1983 and replaced it with the Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority. This agency is made up of fifteen members: the Attorney General, directors of the Department of Corrections and the Department of Law Enforcement, the sheriff of Cook County, the Cook County state's attorney, the superintendent of the Chicago Police Department, the chief judge of the circuit court of Cook County, a justice of the Illinois Supreme Court, a judge of a circuit court of a county other than Cook, a sheriff and a state's attorney of a county other than Cook, a chief of police, and three members of the general public (Executive Order No. 82-2, P.A. 82-, p. 3445).
