IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that, effective July 6, 2015, arresting agencies and the circuit clerk shall comply with the following procedures:

Defendants taken into custody by an arresting agency located within Cook County on an arrest warrant issued by an Illinois state court outside of Cook County shall be required to appear in bond court in the appropriate district or division of this court.  A properly executed Intrastate Hold Affidavit shall accompany the defendant.  The circuit clerk shall assign the affidavit an administrative case number and maintain the administrative case data in an electronic case index separate from the electronic criminal case docket.

A bail hearing shall be held, and the defendant shall be remanded by mittimus to the custody of the Cook County sheriff.  The mittimus (remand order) shall direct the sheriff to release the defendant to the demanding authority if the demanding authority presents itself at the Cook County Department of Corrections.

Dated this 17th day of June, 2015.
