About Illinois Open Public Records
The Illinois Freedom of Information Act, or the FOIA, was first enacted in 1984 and is a series of laws designed to guarantee that the public has access to public records of government bodies at all levels. All records in the custody or possession of a public body are presumed to be open to inspection or copying. Any public body that asserts that a record is exempt from disclosure has the burden of proving by clear and convincing evidence that it is exempt. Illinois is comprised of 102 counties. Illinois has 4,888 populated places including cities, towns and villages. Illinois has more units of local government than any other state, over 8,000 in all. The reason Illinois has so many units of government is because so many single purpose governmental entities have been created. The Uniform Conviction Information Act, UCIA. was enacted in 1991. This law makes all criminal history record convictions public information. Illinois State Police (ISP) manages the central repository for criminal history record information, CHRI in Illinois.
