Fugitive Task ForcesGreat Lakes Regional Fugitive
" When an offender is wanted on a warrant,
it's because he has committed a crime. The longer he is out there, the
more likely he is to commit additional crimes and victimize more people.
We are proud to be part of the Great Lakes Regional Fugitive Task Force because we know that it
will prevent additional crimes and it is a key part of our ongoing efforts
to reduce violent crime in Chicago. We intend to make this the safest big
city in America."
- Phil Cline, Chicago Police Department Superintendent
The Great Lakes
Regional Fugitive Force (GLRFTF) became fully operational in July, 2003, with offices in Chicago, Illinois and
Hammond, Indiana. The GLRFTF continues to develop relationships with
other law enforcement agencies and continues to outfit the task force with
necessary equipment and office space. The GLRFTF has already met
with tremendous success in apprehending numerous violent and dangerous
fugitives throughout the midwest.
