Forty state troopers — dressed in plainclothes and riding alongside Chicago Police officers in unmarked Chicago Police Department vehicles — will start serving fugitive warrants Thursday, under a partnership that could last for 60 days, twice as long as originally planned.

The troopers will be assigned to overlapping, ten-hour shifts — starting at 7 a.m. and 3 p.m. — in four high crime Chicago Police districts: Englewood, Austin, Calumet and Gresham.
