Crime Incidents by YEAR by BLOCK .. page 1 of 2 .. all years are full year, except 2014, which is year to date. Crime incidents are 10% year to date, compared to 2013. Change 13/12 = change from 2012 to 2013. Change 2008=change from 2008 to 2013. Comparisons are not to 2014, because it is not a full year of data.

2014 -- Crime Incidents -- Down in July & August (Surprisingly)
**********************************************************
Crime Stats in posts below
**********************************************************
2014 Trends in Crime Incidents -- Remain Proactive!!!

Even though it may NOT feel like it, the number of crime incidents in our area are down.

In 2013, year to date, there were 627 incidents (across 24 different categories). The Top 5 categories were, in order: Theft, Miscellaneous (big catchall category of nonviolent crimes), Vandalism, Domestic Battery, Drug Use .. see chart below, August Year-to-Year).

In 2014, year to date, there were 548 incidents, a drop of 13% (in 2012, there were 674). In 2014 the Top 5 are, in order: Theft, Miscellaneous, Vandalism, Domestic Battery, Simple Battery.

With all the shooting going on around Rogers Park, Domestic Battery remains a much bigger problem, day to day.

PROBLEM BUILDINGS DRIVE CRIME
Starting early this Spring, there has been a noticeable uptick of crime incidents in what I refer to as the northwest quadrant of our beat (Jarvis to Howard, Damen to Ridge). Of the 3 shootings, 2 of occurred in this area: on Ridge (between Fargo & Birchwood), and across from 2040 W. Birchwood. I feel strongly that this uptick has been driven by incidents in and around 2040 W Birchwood, which went into foreclosure in late 2013 and, with nonexistent management, became a magnet for gangbangers (both in Chicago and Evanston). A receiver was recently appointed by the court, unfortunately, he has chosen to kick out only the people that occupied the first floor. Even more unfortunate, issues at this building are only now being addressed, which means that for some gangbangers it remains a destination as long as the building is open. (Personally, I question the soundness of the building and its units, given how frequently this building has been in foreclosure and the seeming lack of needed repairs.)

BE PROACTIVE, call 911--aggressively if necessary, keep police informed, and call city services about problem landlords and buildings. Being proactive on your block remains the NUMBER ONE way to continue to push down crime.

PARTNERSHIP with POLICE -- What helps drive down crime incidents is our partnership with the police. Police need to know that neighbors remain concerned and willing to be involved in improving the quality of life in our area .. so PLEASE attend CAPS meeting. You don't have to go every month, but try and add the monthly meeting to your schedule (see note below re: change in meeting schedule).

To continue to see declines in crime incidents, watch your block!

It takes persistence attention to your block to bring down crime incidents. The police can't reduce crime without our help .. improving neighborhoods is more than calling 911, you also need to call 311 and the alderman's office about problem buildings, graffiti, street light bulbs that need changing, trees that need trimming, etc.

Be a positive presence on your block (set up a block e-mail and phone/text tree ... stay connected with your neighbors, it's the No. 1 best crime deterrent). You and your neighbors working together are the "secret crime-fighting weapon."

**********************************************************
<b>Next CAPS meeting is TUESDAY, Sept. 16, 2014, at Pottawattomie Park, 7340 N. Rogers -- this will be a meeting focusing on BEAT 2424 ONLY! .. TIME: 7pm to 8 pm ... starts on time; end on time. Going forward, we will be meeting the SECOND TUESDAY of the month. This change resulted from resident feedback, so please make time to attend. Thank you!
