Statement from Lucio Guerrero
Spokesperson for Governor Rod R. Blagojevich

CHICAGO – Governor Rod Blagojevich and top state law enforcement officials met this afternoon during a productive two hour meeting. The meeting included leadership from the Illinois State Police and the Illinois National Guard.* A variety of plans were discussed that would both have an immediate impact in helping Chicago deal with the violence and long term solutions to curb gang activity. The governor will present the ideas later this week to Mayor Daley and looks forward to working with the city in finding ways to help put an end to these senseless killings.
Details of the plans are not being released.
*As mentioned before, there are no plans to use National Guard troops.
