Criminal Justice

The SMART Act

~An Act for County Drug Schools~

INTENT:

The SMART Act will address the devastating impact that drugs and incarceration have on the communites of Illinois.  Without opportunities for intervention in drug use, most drug involved individals will become involved to increasing more serious degrees in the Illinois criminal justice system. There is a critical need for a criminal justice intervention program that identifies individuals in the earliest stages of drug involvment and crinial activity and offers an opportunity to stop the cycle of drug use and criminal behavior before it leads to severe offenses and community decay.
