It is unlawful for a child sex offender to be present in any school building or property, or loiter within 500 feet of school property without the permission of the superintendent or school board, or in the case of a private school the principal unless the child sex offender is a parent of a child at that school, and the parent is on school grounds for one of the following reasons: As of January 1, 2011, it is unlawful for a sexual predator or a child sex offender to knowingly be present in any public park building or on the real property comprising any public park.
The definition of public park includes a park, forest preserve, or conservation area under the jurisdiction of the state or unit of local government.
An offender who is convicted of a violation of the Illinois Sex Offender Registration Act on or after July 1, 2005 is required to register every 90 days for the duration of their registration.
Those offenders adjudicated as Sexually Dangerous or Sexually Violent, must register every 90 days for natural life.
If the offender lives within the city limits, he or she will register with the city police department.
