Officials from the Chicago Police Department will discuss Chicago’s Looting Task Force at the upcoming ORCAs in Action Conference December 1st in a presentation titled “Technology and Teamwork: Inside Chicago’s Looting Task Force.” The task force is a unit launched in August made up of Chicago police detectives who specifically work to identify and arrest those suspected of being involved in looting incidents and burglaries. Members of the task force will review what the task force is all about, how it originated, how it operates, some of the successes that the program has had thus far, and how retailers can partner with police to mitigate incidents and help solve these crimes that are devastating Chicago communities.

Deenihan previously served as a Deputy Chief in the Detective Division. He also served as Commander of Area Central Detectives for the Department, Commander of Internal Affairs, and as a Homicide Lieutenant in Area South.
