The Special Operations Unit was created to provide a central repository for the collection, evaluation, analysis and dissemination of information pertaining to individuals, groups, organizations, and/or businesses suspected of being involved in gang activity and to provide methods of proactive enforcement strategies to prevent and/or curtail the presence of gangs within the Village of Mundelein.

The unit utilizes a ZERO TOLERANCE philosophy as it operates their plan of attack through community education, computerization and community relations. Officers are selected on merit by the authority of the Chief of Police and are trained academically by attending one or more recognized academic institutions including certification as a gang specialist. In addition to addressing interdiction and suppression, officers can be further trained to participate in the public speakers bureau and the gang intelligence unit.
