Crime Spillage From Chicago Into Northwest Indiana

Lake County Sheriff's Department

We begin a series of "Regionally Speaking" conversations about crime spillage from Illinois into northwest Indiana, with Lake County Sheriff's Deputy Chief of Police Dan Murchek.  He's a veteran law enforcement officer who's been with the Department in Crown Point for 22 years.

Murchek talks abut the origins of the latest crime spillage into the Region, how police agencies are planning (both short-term and long-term) to combat and reduce criminal activities, and the very important relationship between law enforcement and the community.
