Law Restricts Posting of Mugshots on Police Social Media Sites

The Illinois General Assembly recently enacted P.A. 100-927 which prohibits police departments from posting mugshots on their department's social media site that were taken in connection with a civil, petty, or business offense or a Class B or C misdemeanor except where the posting of the mugshot is for the purpose of assisting in the search for a missing person or for an individual wanted in relation to a crime.
