  • Bond Question

    And no not James Bond.. But in IL are you guys still required to take cash bonds for traffic violations on scenes? For some reason I remember it from one of the classes I had to take for my RR commission from IL PTB.

    Please let me know, thank you!

    PS-- Do the horses from CPD's mounted unit take the bonds if they do a traffic stop or are they paid in carrots and hay?

    Please let me know, thank you!
    I don't answer recruitment messages....

    No cash changing hands in the street. Have to go to a law enforcement building. I-Bonds, DL or bond cards (some) are good.
    For the cops out there: You are an adult. If you want to write someone, write them. If you don't want to write someone, then don't write them.

      This seems to be just a Cook County thing. In most, if not all counties in the rest of the state an officer may take cash on the street for bond. Of course it is ill-advised. Personally if someone doesn't have a DL for bond I will I-bond them on scene which is also another thing Cook County does not allow.

        In the town I work for we can take up to $100 cash on the street. We have to put it in a cash bond envelope and notify a sgt right after the stop that we have cash bond.

          I've never known of a Chicago area PD that will take cash on street, but I'm sure some do, though I agree it shouldn't be done. Most PD's rules and regs don't allow it anyway. That is not correct about no I-bonds on street in CC for traffic. There is no I-bond on the traffic ticket, but you can have an I-bond signed out of the I-bond book. When I was on a PD in CC, that is the way we did it. Usually just called out the street Sgt. and the bond was issued. Everything in CC was more paperwork than it should have been. When I got to a Will Co department, and there was no more Felony 101 sheets, no more typing complaints unless it was a local complaint, and basically no more calling Felony Review....man did my life just get easier

                hope i get hired by one of them departments soon. Felony 101 is stupid. "What do you have?"

                -"21 female, retail theft over $500, 2nd time arrested"....*interrupted* "Misd. her".

                just waisted 1 hour for you to call me back to tell me what I already knew what the answer would be. Thank you Cook County.

                    Is it true that ISP troopers can only issue I-Bonds on-scene? Other depts., the Sergeant (and above I'm assuming) can only issue I-Bonds, meaning a trip to the station.

                        Oh damn MJW, you just brought back memories! I forgot about the different bond sheets. Current Cook Co cops, remind me, I know I-bond of course is personal recog. But was there a C-Bond that was like for 10% and a D-Bond that was for full cash, like posting $75 for a speeder? God do I love the Will County way much better. One bond sheet covers it all for non-traffic and for traffic, the "bond sheet" is already on the ticket, just check the boxes. On my PD, our Supervisor approves Felonies unless there is a grey area, then the S.A. will get contacted. But the only extra paperwork we have to do for a Felony is palm prints! I love it! And in Will Co. you do NOT type out State Complaints. If I get a felony arrest lets say for a cluster like a Retail Theft, Forgery, Resisting Arrest and PCS, I just slap all 4 charges onto my Arrest and Booking sheet, and bam, the Complaint Office in Will Co types them up for court....awesome!

                          we have felony denial but we dont type felony complaints either, we have a FORM 20 and the felony and any associated misd charges go on. We do have to do a synopsis sheet which is equal to the cook 101 form.

                            The IL Supreme Court Rule 553 sets the guidelines for methods of accepting bond and the procedure. For traffic offenses cash bond is one of the accepted methods.
                            Concerning I-bonds, 553 is specific in that I-bonds are to be issued only if the accused cannot post cash, an IL DL, or a bond certificate.
                            Outside of Cook Co bond up to $105 can be accepted on the street however the ILSC specifies the handling and by whome The accused shall be provided an envelope by the officer. The accused, in the presence of the officer, will place the bond amount in the envelope along with a copy of the citation, seal it, and deposit the envelope in the mail. If there are no mail boxes nearby then the bond can be taken by a state officer (ISP, DNR, SOS), deputy, or another LEO if so designated by name or office by the chief judge.

                              Where I work, the officer "approves" the felony. We don't have to call the SA, type the complaint, or do palm prints. Similar to what dogcop said, we just put on the booking sheet what we are charging them with at the county jail to which the offender becomes their problem. Cook County needs to stop doing things bass ackwards.
