Illinois Supreme Court Commission on Pretrial Practices
On December 21, 2017, the Supreme Court entered an order creating the Illinois Supreme Court Commission on Pretrial Practices. The Commission is charged with conducting a comprehensive review of the State’s pretrial detention system and making recommendations for amendments to state laws, Supreme Court Rules, or Supreme Court policies, as necessary, to ensure pretrial practices in all jurisdictions in Illinois are consistent, in form and substance, with the Supreme Court’s Policy Statement on Pretrial Services. Membership on the commission is comprised of all three branches of government including various justice stakeholders and organizations throughout the state. The Commission released its Preliminary Report in December 2018 and its Final Report in April 2020.
