Chicago

The 2014 Rockford Airfest got off to a high-flying start thanks to some help from the FBI Chicago Field Office. Three SWAT team members made a special appearance during “Make A Wish Day” at the festival on June 6, 2014. The agents met with 25 children and their families from the Make A Wish foundation. The children got an up close look at some of the gear the SWAT team uses. Some of them even got to try on a vest or a helmet. Afterwards, the group took a tour of the FBI Mobile Command Post that was on site during the Airfest (above). Parents also received information about the FBI’s Child ID App.
