'Catturandi' elite police garners support in rounding up Sicilian mafia
The days when the Mafia ruled Sicily could soon be just a memory. The Catturandi are an elite police force with the sole objective of rounding up members of the mob, many of whom have been on the run for years. The officers are all local to Sicily and their dedication to the job has won the hearts of residents and gained their support in hunting down Mafia criminals.
