The Future Of Corrections

 

The Kane County Jail and the Corrections Officials that proudly serve within are part of the largest section of tax-appropriated budget in Kane County. The new mission of the Corrections Division under Ron Hain would be to break the criminal cycle in Kane County.

We're proud to announce that our Break-the-Cycle Skills to Jobs program is operating in full force and successfully connecting people with prior criminal records to career employment opportunities. This same program will become part of the Corrections Division under Ron's administration and will serve to dramatically reduce the incarceration rate and improve the lives of all citizens.

  • Opioid Rehabilitation Through Employment
  • Employed Arrestee Return Next-Day

Sheriff's Public Safety Division

Dynamically Serving and Protecting

 

The Public Safety Department is commonly the face and front line of Sheriff's operations. Under Ron Hain, Sheriff's Office Public Safety Deputies would be assigned according to their individual drives and skill sets to best and most-passionately serve their community.

The Patrol Division would be decentralized from the current design that has existed for decades. The new format, functioning from a North and South Patrol Division, would feature specialized deputies assigned to townships based on crime and traffic statistics. This model would dramatically reduce response times, enhance community relations, and provide a truly responsive approach to the safety and needs of our citizens.



Reducing Crime

While studies show that 80-90% of our criminal culture is under the influence of a narcotic when committing a crime  (source: ADAM study), deferral rehabilitation programs for first time and non-violent offenders will be essential for truly breaking criminal cycles in our community. By re-implementing and supporting proven programs initiated by Ron in 2011 at the Sheriff's Office, a zero tolerance approach to major criminal activity will, once again, be the stance of the 

Sheriff's Office.

  • Implementation of reliable and integrated radio communication systems
  • Transparent and collaborative spending of criminal asset forfeiture proceeds to support the Sheriff's Office budget and alleviate a portion of the tax-appropriated budget

    • Coordination of the "Chicagoland Heroin Task Force"
  • Patrol Division Reformatting
