Annual Renewing Tiers


Sponsorship Tiers and Rewards


Tier 1—$49 a year or $5 per month

• Email alerts for important, breaking events that are having immediate impact on public safety

• An exclusive 2017 year-end crime performance report for each North Side community area. Your copies will be delivered via email upon receipt of your subscription.

• Our 2018 judge performance scorecard. You'll receive a copy before early voting begins on March 5 and another edition in time for the Fall election cycle. Our scorecard will show sentences handed down, bail amounts set, and related quantifiable information for each local judge who is up for retention.

• Incident research: Can you tell me what happened at Broadway and Roscoe around 4 o’clock? CWB's team will research these common inquiries for Tier 2 supporters and pass along anything we learn.

• Quarterly crime summary and statistics report for each North Side community area delivered on April 20; July 20; and October 20.


Tier 2—$219 a year or $19 per month
• You will receive all benefits of the previous tier.

• Court case tracking. Each year, we will monitor up to 10 criminal court cases of your choosing and deliver status updates to you after each court appearance.

• Annual custom crime audit. CWB’s research team will create a custom report exclusively for you. The report will map crime hot spots and plot crime statistics and historical performance in a 2-mile-square zone centered on your home address—or any address that you choose within the city. Also included: Details of all registered sex offenders, gun offenders, and violent crime offenders within your zone and a summary of the allegations that were made against them (Cook County convictions only).

Tier 3—$999 a year or $89 per month
• Ideal for block clubs or neighbors who want to combine resources.

• You will receive all features of lower tiers.

• Monthly custom crime audits. The report will map crime hot spots and plot crime statistics and historical performance in a 2-mile-square zone centered on your home address or any address that you choose within the city.

• Changes in nearby sex, gun, and violent criminal registrations will be monitored and reported monthly.

• Tracking of up to 20 criminal court cases (10 more than second tier)


Tier 4—$2,499 a year or $219 per month
• Perfect for neighborhood patrol sponsors, chambers of commerce, business groups, neighborhood organizations, and block clubs.

• You will receive all features of lower tiers.

• Bi-weekly crime audits for up to two square-miles with customizable boundaries.

• Tracking of up to 30 criminal court cases (10 more than second tier)

• Weekly arrests summary. This custom-made report includes mugshots and allegations against all individuals arrested within your customized zone. Also included: charges, judge, bail, and the accused’s relevant criminal history. (See customization option below.)

• Option: Sponsors at this level may opt further customization. As an example, restaurant operators may prefer to receive a special report that provides mugshots and allegations for North Side cases that involved a restaurant setting (i.e. wallet and phone thieves). Community groups may prefer a custom report that collects similar information for North Side garage burglaries or theft from auto cases that result in arrests. These reports could help sponsors identify individuals who have been accused of relevant crimes in other areas of the North Side.
