Illinois Commission on Delinquency Prevention - RG 310 | Illinois State Archives

Name: Illinois Commission on Delinquency Prevention - RG 310


Historical Note: The Illinois Commission on Delinquency Prevention, composed of fifteen persons appointed by the Governor, was created in 1975. It assumed the responsibilities of the Community Services Section in the Juvenile Division of the Department of Corrections. Its overall goal was to enlist local people individually and in organized groups in cooperative efforts to attack the problem of juvenile delinquency in their immediate neighborhoods. The commission was to assist in combating local conditions known to contribute to delinquency; aid in developing local recreational programs; help in developing local programs to provide adult sponsors for delinquent cases; consult and cooperate with schools, police agencies, and the courts; cooperate with other agencies in the care and treatment of delinquents; hold district and state conferences to acquaint the public with the problems of juvenile delinquency; distribute reports and studies of delinquency; and develop a statewide central records system for juveniles and make information available to local registered participants. The commission was to meet no fewer than once every three months and its minutes were to be available as public records (P.A. 79-944, pp. 2853-2857).
