Tactical Response Unit (T.R.U.)

In direct response to recurring criminal concerns and specific crime patterns, the Forest Park Police Department maintains a Tactical Response Unit to more effectively control and suppress criminal activities and trends as they are identified. The team consists of a Sergeant and two police officers which operate in plain clothes as necessary to meet their objectives. The team often coordinates its efforts internally with the Patrol and Investigative Divisions and externally with agencies such as West Suburban Drug/Gang Task Force (WEDGE) the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), U.S. Customs and the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI).
