Wilcox and McConchie Sponsoring SAFE-T Act Presentation

From State Senator Craig Wilcox:

Senators Wilcox, McConchie to host SAFE-T Act Town Hall on Oct. 20

In Crystal Lake.There has been a lot of information- some of it true and some of it not true- circulated through the media and online about the SAFE-T Act and provisions that are set to take effect statewide on January 1, 2023.

If you have questions and want to separate fact from fiction once and for all, please attend a SAFE-T Act Town Hall Meeting Senator Dan McConchie and I are co-hosting on Thursday, October 20 in Crystal Lake.

McHenry County State’s Attorney Patrick Kenneally and Crystal Lake Police Chief James Black will be guest speakers at the 6:00-7:30 p.m. event, which will be held at the Heartland Realtor Organization building, 405 E. Congress Parkway, Suite B, Crystal Lake.

Our expert guest speakers will explain troublesome areas of the SAFE-T Act and talk about how the changes would affect their offices and overall public safety. A Q & A period will be included as part of the event.

Space is limited, so reservations are encouraged. To reserve your spot at this informational event, please click here. For more information, you can call my office at (815) 455-6330, or email Ryan at rschwartz@sgop.ilga.gov.

In addition, Wilcox offers the following:

The number of state’s attorneys and county sheriffs in Illinois filing lawsuits against the SAFE-T Act continues to increase each day, with more expected to follow suit.

A growing number of municipal governing bodies have also joined together in officially stating their opposition.

A majority of these lawsuits claim the elimination of cash bail is unconstitutional, in part because it violates the rights of crime victims.

Other suits argue the SAFE-T Act is too vague and needs to be further clarified or repealed altogether. This growing list is a mixture of both Republicans and Democrats statewide.

A newly launched website, www.StopTheSAFE-TAct.com, seeks to provide the public with information on the law’s shortcomings and encourages people to take action in an effort to repeal the SAFE-T Act.

As a reminder, I have a petition that allows Illinois residents to make their voice heard on the issue.

  1. Anything with RINO McConchie is a doomed effort.

    McConchie is UnConchie!

  2. Just make crime illegal.

    Simple.

    Only Democrats want criminals to be protected and the citizenry left vulnerable!

  3. Y-A-W-N. I’d rather be taking a dump than attend this platitude of the day.
