Illinois law eliminating cash bail has some in law enforcement concerned

A controversial criminal justice reform law is back in the spotlight as a suburban sheriff and prosecutor are raising concerns about its impact.

Sheriff Briley worries about the possible ramifications in his community.

"And if we can't arrest them and solve people's problems, we don't want people to take matters into their own hands," Briley said.

Grundy County State's Attorney Jason Helland is also raising his own concerns.

"When no cash bail applies to every jurisdiction, all 102 counties in the state of Illinois, I'm really concerned about seeing criminal activity that we've never seen in this area," Helland said.

The new law still gives judges the discretion to keep suspects they deem dangerous locked up without bail. But many in law enforcement are concerned too many people who should be behind bars won't be after January 1.

The SAFE-T Act:
❌ Abolishes cash bail for almost every offense.
❌ Individuals on electronic monitoring must be in violation for 48 hours before law enforcement can act.
❌ Prohibits officers from removing trespassers from your residence or business.
