Law allows sharing of juvenile criminal records
ELGIN – School officials and law enforcement authorities in Illinois will be allowed to share juvenile criminal records on a limited basis under an Illinois law signed Monday, legislation that was sparked by a 2008 knife attack on a suburban Chicago teacher.
Law enforcement records can be shared orally but can't become a part of the student's records or public records, according to the new law. Also, authorities can provide information to schools "only if the agency or officer believes that there is an imminent threat of physical harm to students, school personnel, or others who are present in the school or on school grounds."
Gov. Pat Quinn signed the bill into law at Elgin High School. It goes into effect next year.
