Sec. 5-1085.5. Homicide and questionable death protocol.

Each county, except home rule counties, must establish a  written protocol to deal with homicides and questionable  deaths. The protocol must be promulgated by the Coroner,  Sheriff, State's Attorney, all fire departments and fire  protection districts located in the county, and all police  departments located in the county. The protocol must include  at least the following:

(a) the types of deaths that fall under the scope of the  protocol;

(b) the agencies concerned with the death;

(c) the area of responsibility for each agency regarding  the death; and

(d) uniform procedures concerning homicides and  questionable deaths.

If, prior to the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 92nd General Assembly, a county has established a written  protocol that was agreed to by the agencies specified in this Section to deal with homicides and questionable deaths, then  that protocol is deemed to satisfy the requirements of this  Section.

The protocol shall not interfere with reasonable attempts to preserve life, attempt resuscitation, or provide necessary medical services.
