Illinois State Police (ISP) said in a statement posted Tuesday to social media that they will not arrest or jail any individual in violation of Democratic Governor J.B. Pritzker’s lockdown or emergency orders.
Pritzker rammed through “emergency orders” on Friday targeting businesses, which level misdemeanors charges at owners who defy his edicts. Not only will they face fines up to $2,500, but owners would possibly face time behind bars.
Apparently, ISP will not be arresting or jailing anyone for such “crimes,” though they said they would be issuing some citations in accordance with “state and constitutional law.”
