Great Lakes Regional Fugitive Task Force


" 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.
