Keeping Communities Safe

Attorney General Kwame Raoul works with law enforcement agencies and state’s attorneys to ensure that our communities are safe places to live and raise children.

As part of his commitment to community safety, Attorney General Raoul is working to increase the supervision of sex offenders, combat the spread of methamphetamine and synthetic drugs, provide training and education programs on high tech crimes, coordinate the Illinois Internet Child Exploitation Task Force, coordinate services to the immigrant population and unite all youth programs under one Youth Advocacy Initiative.

In addition, the Attorney General's office provides assistance to State's Attorneys across Illinois, prosecute cases developed by Office investigators and represent the state when in criminal appeals.

Firearms Restraining Order
A Firearms Restraining Order (FRO) is a way for family or household members or law enforcement to ask a court to restrict a personís access to guns, ammunition, and firearm parts when that person poses a significant danger to themselves or others. To prevent the commission of gun violence, a Firearms Restraining Order is a civil court order that temporarily prohibits a person from possessing or buying firearms, ammunition, and firearm parts that could be assembled to make an operable firearm.

If you are worried someone poses a danger to themselves or others, you should also immediately contact local law enforcement to report the situation.
