From McHenry County Sheriff Bill Prim:
“The McHenry County Sheriff’s Office at this time has no plan to enforce the Governor’s order as a criminal offense.
“As Governor Pritzker said on May 6, 2020,
‘At the state level, we don’t have the capacity or desire to police individual behavior of 12.7 million people.’
“We too, do not have the capacity or desire to enforce the Governor’s orders.
“The Sheriff’s Office does encourage residents to self-monitor and voluntarily comply with the orders.
“It is our duty to ensure the safety of all citizens within McHenry County is our priority.
“With the Governor’s order, voluntary compliance is important in moving forward on the road to a revitalized and restored community.
“The community’s safety and well-being, mentally and physically, are of the utmost concern.”
