Clinton Police Chief Reacts to Elimination of Cash Bail

Monday officially began the elimination of cash bail in Illinois - the first state in America to take up such a policy.


Clinton Police Chief Ben Lowers says there are still a lot of things to work through with the State's Attorney's office even as this is now in effect. 



One thing that concerns the Chief is the fact drug addiction is going to see no break in the cycle and he believes that is very significant in combatting the drug problem in our communities.



Law enforcement across the State is concerned with letting criminals return to the streets, keeping their victims and the general public in fear of rampant crime in their communities.
