Kendall County Board Chairman Scott R. Gryder Signs Resolution Criticizing the SAFE-T Act
Oswego, Ill. – Local law, national implications. The Safety, Accountability, Fairness and Equity-Today Act, known as the SAFE-T Act has raised concerns among 100 State’s Attorneys and a growing number of local and state officials.
Several initiatives of the SAFE-T act go into effect over the next few years. Most notably, beginning January 1, 2023, the elimination of cash bail is set to take effect. This severely limits the judiciary’s ability to set bail to hold the accused accountable, and it puts victims and their families in jeopardy of safety and security.
When we let criminals free, our nation suffers. Under the SAFE-T Act, they will be free to travel and escape to their next crime without being held accountable with bail.
Radical politicians continue to unilaterally decide what is best for you and your family. They continue to pass bills without your input, without your voiced concerns, without the concerns of attorneys and law enforcement.
Lauren Underwood refuses to acknowledge and condemn the SAFE-T act. Instead, she continues to campaign and accept money from radical, defund-the-police politicians.
I stand, and will continue to stand, with law enforcement, first responders, and victims and their families. Every individual has the right to feel safe and secure in their home and community. I will speak against and hold the line on bad legislation like I’ve done with this resolution.
One question that remains to be answered: where do you stand on the SAFE-T act, Lauren?
