Children under 13 who are accused of crimes will no longer be locked up in Cook County.

Under a law passed unanimously Wednesday by the Cook County Board of Commissioners, the county will find alternatives to detaining kids arrested in the county.

The ordinance sets a minimum age of 13 for those placed in the county’s Juvenile Temporary Detention Center at 1100 S. Hamilton on the Near West Side.
