GRAPHIC: 9 Cops Added To Our Area SInce May

The 19th police district is now manned by 378 police officers, an increase of 10% since the start of the year, according Chicago Police Department staffing data that was provided to CWB Chicago.

Our district, which stretches from Lawrence Avenue to Fullerton Avenue and from the Chicago River to Lake Michigan, saw its police force slashed from 468 officers in October 2011 to a low of 326 cops in October of last year.

  1. Reactionary to a explosive rate in crime. Glad it is happening, but there is still:

    1) No lockup at Addison
    2) No anti Gang strategy, which now totally owns Belmont ledges (former rocks)
    3) No one assigned to the Belmont and Addison L stations.
    4) No assignments to guard Rahbo's Castle except from the 19th.

    At least they are not pulling the nonsense of putting the "Big Scary Bus" (a retired Flxible Metro junk bus) sitting on Halsted.

    1. wait a second, Rahm's security comes from the 19? The entire detail or just a house detail from the 19 and the main detail from somewhere else?

    2. Emanuel's house detail is taken from district manpower. That's approximately 7 officers at any given time, or about 5% of the force on duty at any time.

    1. Our numbers reflect the number of officers who are assigned to the 19th district AND are assigned to report to work here. We do not count officers who are detailed out.

  4. Trending the right direction. Skeptical it will last. The drain of Rahm's security detail is troubling. I wish with all of the Cubs fighting they got the Cubs to agree to provide private security or $ for many extra coppers in the three or four blocks around Wrigley all the time.
