Home > Departments > C.C.S.P.D. >Special Investigations Division >Gang Unit

The Sheriff’s Police Gang Unit consists of six teams, five of which deploy geographically by court district and a sixth that works closely with the Criminal Intelligence Unit at the Cook County Jail.  In addition to investigating gang activity throughout Cook County, officers from the unit are also involved with several Federal task forces and participate annually in the U.S. Marshal’s Service’s “Operation Falcon” warrant sweep.

During 2009, the Gang Unit executed more than 260 search warrants, made more than 4,400 arrests, confiscated nearly 400 guns and seized more than $2.4 million dollars (street value) in various illegal drugs.
