Various Illinois Public Acts create the position of mandated reporter. Illinois Law Enforcement Officers are often included in the list of mandated reporters created by those Acts. These Statutes include: the Abused and Neglected Child Reporting Act; the Adult Protective Services Act; the Children and Family Services Act; the Illinois School Code; and the Illinois Domestic Violence Act of 1986. This presentation will identify and analyze the statutory provisions declaring Illinois Law Enforcement Officers to be mandated reporters. The direct and indirect affects these provisions have upon law enforcement officers will be identified and analyzed. The Officer’s new “Duty to Aid” will be discussed for the purpose of determining the impact, if any, this new provision will have on mandated reporters. Finally, recent Federal and Illinois case law will be analyzed for the purpose of clarifying the duties of such Officers. The overall goal of this presentation is to assist law enforcement officers in better understanding the roles as Mandated Reporters in Illinois.
