Meth Registry

By  | 

Gov. Rod Blagojevich signed a law Monday that will require the Illinois State Police to create an Internet database to track convicted methamphetamine makers.

The Methamphetamine Manufacturer Registry will include the convicted person's name, birth date and the type of crime and the county where it was committed. The information will be collected by local circuit court clerks and the Illinois Department of Corrections and will be available on the Internet to police and ordinary citizens.

The governor also signed three other pieces of legislation aimed at reducing meth manufacture and trafficking.
