Many wiretaps may have been approved illegally

Illinois residents may not have heard that a number of wiretaps used since 2013 to arrest more than 300 people and seize drugs and cash may have been illegal. As many as 738 wiretaps were approved by lower-level attorneys between mid-2013 and late 2015 when according to federal law, wiretaps must be approved by a top prosecutor.

Regional drug unit targets illegal drug activity

Narcotic drug activity is being targeted in Boone County, Illinois, through a new task force developed in October 2015. The narcotics unit is in its initial weeks of operation and has detained its first alleged offenders. Officials indicate that they believe drugs are a serious cause of problems, noting that a lack of drug activity would likely eliminate much of the crime in the region. Leaders believe that this special unit, which is comprised of officers from the city of Belvidere and from the county sheriff's department, will help with crime prevention by targeting drugs such as crack cocaine and heroin.
