Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez recently joined U.S. Senator Dick Durbin and representatives from federal, state and local agencies to discuss law enforcement’s efforts to track and capture criminal fugitives and to explore ways in which the process can be improved among the agencies involved in these efforts.

Alvarez was one of several local officials who joined leaders from the United States Attorney General’s Office, the U.S. Justice Department, the U.S. Attorney’s Office, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the U.S. Marshal’s Office who met with Senator Durbin in Chicago to discuss the local and international challenges that these agencies face in efforts to capture fugitives. 

Challenges that were identified in the process include budgetary cutbacks and personnel shortages and extradition treaty issues with other countries that prevent the United States from extraditing fugitives for certain crimes.  The group will continue to meet on a regular basis to address the issues that were raised and to work toward improving the process.
