From Ald. Cappleman's latest email blast:
It's always good to reflect back on the past to make sure we're moving forward in the right direction. Throughout my term that started in 2011, I implemented a number of different public safety measures, and many of them involved stronger collaboration of my office with the police, CAPS, the schools, local businesses, social services, and most importantly, people like you.
To accurately assess whether or not our interventions are working, it's important to have clear and objective information about crime in our neighborhoods. The Chicago Tribune's website is helpful because it provides crime trends for 3 different categories: property, quality of life, and violent crimes. From the chart below, it's clear that the action plans we've implemented are producing positive results.
