Return to Owner?
Authorities this past weekend arrested 249 people, took 24 parolees into custody and seized 22 guns as part of a joint law enforcement crackdown that Chicago Police Supt. Jody Weis said would send a clear message to criminals.
The sweeps were the third leg of "Operation Return To Owner," a plan that saturates high-crime areas with law enforcement and city inspection teams aimed at targeting criminals, along with the derelict businesses and slums that attracts them. The suppression strategy aims at lowering violence by putting a finer law enforcement focus on areas plagued by gang violence and drugs.
- The police's gang enforcement, tactical officers and rapid response and gun teams were joined by officers from Illinois State police, sheriff's, state's attorney's offices, as well as state corrections and U.S. Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
