Round Lake Park officers received assistance from federal and local law-enforcement agencies in making a dozen arrests in a street gang sweep, the village's police chief said Saturday. "Our goal is to relentlessly pursue gang activity," Chief George Filenko said. It was the first of several planned operations and a follow-up to recent arrests of high-ranking gang members by federal authorities, Filenko said.
