Circuit Clerk: Judges Should Order County To Report Mental Illness Cases To State Police

Sangamon County’s circuit court clerk wants judges to specifically order his office to notify state police when someone in the county is found to be mentally ill by the court system.

 

A recent audit found that most Illinois counties do not pass that information along to state police, complicating efforts to keep Firearm Owners I-D cards out of the hands of people who would be ineligible because of mental illness.

 

Circuit Clerk Tony Libri, calling in live to 970 WMAY, says his office cannot track every such case on its own and needs specific direction from judges to make sure that information gets to where it needs to go.
