The CWB Daily Ticker is a dashboard of the most up-to-date robbery statistics possible for our neighborhood over the past year, 5 years, and 10 years.

As we've often said, our problem did not spring up overnight. It has built and built over several years. Simply comparing this year to last year misses the huge increase that we saw in 2011 and 2012. The dashboard shows the bigger picture.

Our source is the city itself, with robbery data taken from the City of Chicago Data Portal. In the event of an outage or update failure at the data portal, information is obtained from the Chicago Police Department web site. The city quarantines crime data for at least 7 days.

The complete list of 2013 robberies is here.
The complete list of 2012 robberies is here.
The complete list of 2008 robberies is here.
The complete list of 2003 robberies is here.

Beat ranking information is from the Chicago Police Department web site.

Our standard statement regarding historical data applies:

The city quarantines crime data for at least 7 days.

The CPD realigned our area's police beats in March 2012. The lines that divide Chicago police beats literally run down the middle of their shared streets and it is not possible to know with certainty which side of a street crimes were reported on before March 4, 2012.  In order to maintain consistency across all years, we have included all robberies that were reported on both sides of the border streets (Irving Park Road, Southport Avenue, and Belmont Avenue) in our calculations. As a result, our post-March 4, 2012, stats may vary slightly from official records.

Also, note that very recent crime totals may fluctuate slightly as incidents are investigated and recategorized. These fluctuations settle out fairly quickly.

    A minuute apart, in the middle of the dark night, the animals race to the next block and poor, unsuspecting victim for another terrifying assault?

    Or is it sloppy police reporting?

    Whatever the case, these ghouls are beyond vicious and reprehensible. I dread Halloween,
    especially since reading about the
    clown incident. Hate clowns.

    And look at the cases piling up in the court system in the murder capital of the US, which is so financially broke. How many will get the justice they deserve and put behind bars?

    Good old days are gone, and looks like we're mostly truly on our own, despite the good cops I so appreciate who're out there, trying to do all they can in this mess of insanely strained resources and totally ineffective city/police oversight and management.

    Unbelievably scary, stressful and tragic .. where will this end?

    Hi Anonymous. No, it's not sloppy reporting. It's accurate reporting. You can click on the case numbers in this post and read our original report from the morning of the incidents.

    The second victim witnessed the first robbery from across the street. Two of the offenders noticed him and broke away to rob him as well. Two robberies at gunpoint across the street from each other in under a minute.
