Excerpts from fox32chicago.com:

The Orland Fire Protection District Board of Trustees denounced the adoption of the Illinois Safety, Accountability, Fairness and Equity-Today Act (SAFE-T ACT) stating that it reduces punishments and accountability for criminals and undermines the authority of police.

The new law that goes into effect Jan. 1, 2023, gets rid of cash bail entirely. It also limits who can be arrested and held in jail based on the crime they are alleged to have committed. Many members of the law enforcement community are working to have the current law amended.

Those who are in support of the law say it’s wrong to keep people in jail simply because they can’t afford bail.

The Orland Fire Protection District Board will vote to approve a resolution during a Sept. 27 board meeting — urging the legislature to repeal the law.
