Survivors of sexual assault are empowered by new law that goes into effect immediately

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – Survivors of sexual assault will receive up-to-date information about Illinois’ online tracking system for evidence collection kits under legislation introduced by state Rep. Maura Hirschauer, D-Batavia, which was signed into law on Friday.

“Survivors who report a sexual assault deserve assurance that their case will be handled appropriately and promptly,” said Hirschauer. “Being able to track their evidence kit and trust it’s being processed can help survivors move forward with confidence, but only if they know they have this option.”

In 2020, the Illinois State Police launched an online tracking system called CheckPoint, which allows survivors of sexual assault to monitor their evidence kit in real time throughout the analysis process. Hirschauer’s House Bill 1739 pushes hospital staff and law enforcement to explain how to use the tracking system in their interactions with survivors.

Gov. J.B. Pritzker signed the measure into law on Friday.

“It’s critical that our state laws on sexual assault take into account the human element of this horrific crime, and that we’re providing comprehensive, trauma-informed care for each and every survivor,” said Hirschauer. “This new law empowers survivors, ensures they’re not kept in the dark because of bureaucracy and helps them regain a sense of control.”
