In response to Chicago's violent crime problem, 40 Illinois State Police Officers will soon hit the streets in beleaguered neighborhoods. The officers represent an expansion of a partnership between Chicago Police and the Illinois State Police. The 40 officers will join the Chicago Police Department's Fugitive Unit and help search for wanted criminals. The additional officers are expected to be added in the next 30 days. Chicago is suffering through an awful summer of violent shootings. Over the 4th of July weekend alone, more than 60 people were shot and nine were killed. The Illinois State Police and Chicago Police will form "surge" teams with five Chicago Police officers and two state troopers.
