  1. Love the security guard at 11:48pm! We need more of that.

  2. No entertainment cars around last night? All 3 of them went in on 1 arrest while the jobs kept coming out again taking beat cars to do there job. What a joke

    1. Because they know they can go home after the arrest.

  3. I know it's much busier there in wrigleyville and boystown but some of us live way west in the district and get no police service. We stay near Hamlin Park and whenever we call the police we never even see the police come to handle it anymore. It used to be pretty good here with police service, Not anymore.

    1. Thank Rahm & the great merger of 19/23. We have lost over a hundred officers in 2 yrs. It was all a sham to steal our resources.

    2. If you live west of Racine you get absolutely no
      Police service. All resources are allocated to uptown, boys town ,
      And wrigleyville. Good luck if you live on
      1911 or 1922's bt.

    3. Some if that has to do with the old 023 people who run things. They don't think anything happens west of Clark St.
