Yesterday, the Illinois Supreme Court announced that the plan to allow cameras in all Illinois courts is continuing to move forward and added another county to the program. Kankakee County will become the second county in Illinois to allow cameras in courtrooms. On February 3, 2012, we published an article informing our readers that the courtroom camera program was initiated in northwest Illinois, in the 14th Judicial Circuit. The Judicial Circuit covering Kankakee County also covers Iroquois County. This next step will first start in Kankakee and then expand to the courtrooms in Iroquois County if everything progresses well. The camera program seems to be slowly working its way towards Chicago.
