Illinois State Police say they're going to start cracking down on violence on Chicago-area expressways.
State police said yesterday that they'll start using aircraft, video cameras, undercover officers and covert vehicles as part of the Chicago Expressway Anti-Violence Surge.
The goal is to stop expressway shootings. Police say there also will be more uniformed troopers on the expressways.
State police officials say that over the last few years gang-related gun violence has escalated and shifted to Chicago expressways.
