24-7-2 Abandoned, Lost, Stolen or Unclaimed Vehicle Notification to Law Enforcement Agencies

When an abandoned, lost, stolen or unclaimed vehicle comes into the temporary possession or custody of a person in this County, not the owner of the vehicle, such person shall immediately notify the municipal police when the vehicle is within the corporate limits of any County having a duly authorized police department, or the State Police or the county sheriff when the vehicle is outside the corporate limits of the County.  Upon receipt of such notification, the municipal police will authorize a towing service to remove and take possession of the abandoned, lost, stolen or unclaimed vehicle.  The towing service will safely keep the towed vehicle and its contents, maintain a record of the tow as set forth in 625 ILCS 5/4-204 for law enforcement agencies, until the vehicle is claimed by the owner or any other person legally entitled to possession thereof or until it is disposed of as provided in this Code.  (625 ILCS 5/4-202)
