In April 2013, State's Attorney Tom Gibbons announced the creation of the Children's Justice Division in an effort to better coordinate his office's response to cases involving the children of Madison County. State's Attorney Gibbons appointed Assistant State's Attorney Kathleen Nolan to lead the division which encompasses not only felony cases but also misdemeanor, juvenile delinquency, juvenile abuse and neglect and child support cases.

"The welfare of our children should be the highest of priorities. Children often have contact with the justice system on many levels, and cases involving children are often quite complex," said State's Attorney Gibbons at the time of the announcement. "I want to make certain that my prosecutors are working together and maximizing our resources at every level to achieve the best possible outcomes."

The Children's Justice Division also works with various agencies and groups outside of the State's Attorney's Office including U.S. Attorney's Office, Illinois Attorney General's Office and the Madison County Child Advocacy
