Van Pelt November 2022CHICAGO – State Senator Patricia Van Pelt (D-Chicago) released the following statement after reports of people being turned away at a Chicago Police Department registry office:

“I am disappointed and appalled to hear that those complying with the law are not being properly supported. Those who have served time for their criminal convictions deserve to assimilate into the community, and register themselves without increasing the risk of arrest and additional time served.”

“No one should be standing in line for extended hours, taking time away from work, their family, and daily tasks while trying to do so.”

“I’ve reached out to the Chicago Police Department and will monitor the situation.”
