Detective Sgt. Lou Savelli retired from the New York City Police Department in 2004 as one of the most decorated officers in NYPD history. He was the Detective Squad Commander of the Terrorism Interdiction Unit (TIU), which was formed on 9/11/01. Its mission: investigate the attacks on the World Trade Center and seek out Al Qaeda sleeper cells operating in the United States. Following his retirement, his former unit, the NYPD Terrorism Interdiction Unit (TIU), was responsible for uncovering the New York Subway System Terror Plot in 2004. The TIU is now the model for proactive counter-terrorism units in major cities across the United States.
Prior to the TIU, Sgt. Savelli was the Detective Squad Commander of the Gang Division Major Case Squad. This unit was created from the NYPD’s first Citywide Anti-Gang Enforcement (CAGE) Unit. The CAGE Unit was created by Sgt. Savelli in 1996 and was recognized as the Most Effective Gang Unit in the United States. As a Detective, he was a member of the New York Drug Enforcement Task Force where he specialized in money laundering cartels and international drug trafficking organizations such as the Cali Columbian Drug Cartel. In fact, he and his drug unit made the largest cash seizure in world history to date: $20 million dollars.
Sgt. Savelli was twice awarded Supervisor of the Year out of 20,000 supervisors of all ranks and named one of NYPD’s Top 10 Most Effective Leaders. He is co-founder and current first vice-president of the East Coast Gang Investigators Association.
