MAPPED: December's Neighborhood Crimes

CWB is pleased to announce the start of a content sharing partnership with Chicago Spectrum.

We will be featuring one relevant post from Chicago Spectrum each week in an effort to keep you informed about crime in our neighborhoods and give you a taste of what Chicago Spectrum has to offer.

One feature that we are particularly excited about is Chicago Spectrum's ability to generate timely maps of crimes reported in Wrigleyville and Boystown. Using their maps, you are able to zoom down to block level and get the details of reported crimes.

  1. Heads are rolling at Howard Brown Youth Center -- 6 people are losing their jobs, including another from BYC:

    1. Maybe someone at Howard Brown decided something was wrong when it has been reported that some criminals were using Broadway Youth Center as a home address.

  2. This is very informative and useful - at a glance, we can see where the reported crimes are. Thank you to CWB and Chicago Spectrum! Is there any way to also add the crimes called in but when a police report wasn't filed? Maybe in a different color? Because as we all know, there are lots of crimes that go unreported because a police report isn't filed, but it doesn't mean they didn't happen.

    1. Thank you for letting us know. There seem to be issues, especially on corporate networks. Chicago Spectrum is working on it.

    2. Chrome is working a-okay now. They're still working on IE.

  4. Tried to click on the link "youth center" in the comment that says "heads are rolling at the Howard Brown youth center", but pop up ads prevented these links from opening: FYI

    1. ? Works okay for us with no pop-ups. Patch doesn't usually have pop-ups.
