Nobody asked any questions at the Justice Committee meeting!
By: Diane Benjamin
The County Justice Committee is meeting today. See the documentation here: https://mcleancountyil.gov/ArchiveCenter/ViewFile/Item/8339
The coroner’s report is included every month, year to date numbers aren’t. See PDF page 5 for August 2021 numbers.
I had to chart the suicides by looking at reports for every month, it doesn’t appear to me that “probable” ever make it to the first column. Kathy Yoder can verify if somebody asks. Add those to the Drug Overdoses and it’s too many people who should be here but no longer are.
Also in the report is a chart showing the number of cases from the State’s Attorney’s office: (PDF page 8)
No, there weren’t 389 mental health cases!
389 is the year to date total, September should be 45.
The committee was sent a correction.
(I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry when I saw it 😁)
