CPD Begins Foot Patrols On Wilson

CBS Chicago has a story today about the police putting beat officers/foot patrols on Wilson this summer in an attempt to lessen gang violence.  Seems like a good start to us.  The text version of the story is here.


  1. Its about time, never understood the level of loitering, especially around Truman College, given that a fire station is right across the street!


  2. They use to have one who would patrol along Clark. He would usually just chit chat with local merchants. Of course, the vagrants are more down by Broadway.

  3. Great news, I'm thankful Uptown is getting these much needed resources!
