Can an extreme risk protection order be renewed?

If the judge decides that the respondent still poses an extreme risk of harm to himself/herself or others by possessing a dangerous weapon, the judge can renew the extreme risk protection order for another six months. The State’s Attorney or the Office of the Attorney General may request a renewal 14-30 days before the current order expires.1
