Arrests for Drug Crimes Will Continue As Chicago Police Target Areas of the City
By:

The Chicago Police Department is renewing its efforts to target drug operations across the city. As a result, arrests will continue to go up for crimes ranging from trafficking charges to weapons violations to gang-related offenses. As the narcotics division continues to target and then investigate various areas in the city, those arrested will want to enlist the assistance of an aggressive and experienced Chicago drug crimes attorney.

 

Such an approach also means a risk that individuals who are not involved in any drug crimes or other illegal activity could be arrested simply because of their presence in an area of Chicago that is being targeted by law enforcement. There is also a risk that the covert efforts of narcotics agents to identify those involved in drug and other crimes will create scenarios in which the legal rights of those subsequently charged were violated in some way. Obviously, the effort to eradicate drug crimes from the Chicago area, however well-intentioned, can never be used as a justification for the conviction of innocent parties or for the violation of an individual’s Constitutional rights.
