The "notable arrests" newsletter is out for April, and the uptick in crime is reflected in the four pages (39 arrests) for the 23rd District.
It's of interest to us that the 23rd District runs from Fullerton to Lawrence and has one of the lowest overall crime rates in the city. However, of the 39 "most notable" arrests, all but two of them are connected to Uptown. (The other two are in Wrigleyville.)
Next time you're told by a politician how low the crime rate is for the 23rd District, filter that out and ask about the crime rate in Uptown. It's a whole 'nother story.
As always, the newsletter "is designed to inform interested members of the community with timely information regarding individuals who have been arrested and charged with the commission of a crime that occurred within our area. We emphasize that unless otherwise noted, these individuals have already been taken into custody, formally charged, are awaiting trial and are NOT WANTED at this time. Should you observe any of these individuals committing criminal acts, please contact the police via 9-1-1 immediately and take no further action."
UPDATE: Per request, the 20th District "notable arrests" have been added to the linked document. Also, a link to the 20th District's home page has been added to the links at the right side of the page.
