Rockford Fire Department Division Chief Matthew Knot told WQRF that Illinois specifically passed “to prevent such tragic events if a new parent is overwhelmed.
“You’re able to turn in a child to a staffed fire station, law enforcement or hospital within 30 days of that child’s birth,” Knott said.
“It’s no questions asked, there’s no prosecution, it’s just designed to provide a safe place for that child to go in case there is an issue. We’ve all seen headlines before, and we’ve seen certainly what could possibly happen just abandoning a child, or leaving it in an unsafe environment, or whatever the situation may be, but this is a suitable alternative.”
According to Knott, once the baby is turned over to a member of the staff, the parent surrenders their custodial rights to the child, who is transferred to a local hospital for evaluation.
