How CPD Works With Feds To Tackle Chicago Violence, Gun Trafficking

Previous Next

Audio will be available later today.

During his first few months in the White House, President Donald Trump said —repeatedly—that he would “send in the feds” to Chicago to fight crime. Well, last summer, the Chicago Police Department teamed up with federal agencies to fight crime in the city—particularly gun violence. 

The CPD works with the FBI, the Drug Enforcement Administration, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (better known as the ATF). Morning Shift is checking in with these different agencies to get a sense of how they work with local law enforcement and what progress is being made in Chicago. 

GUEST:

Celinez Nunez, Special Agent in Charge at the ATF’s Chicago Field Division
