Crime in Chicago: A Tale of Two Blocks

| No Comments

The Chicago Police Department's "wraparound" program -- which involves arresting gang members and deploying city services to a specific area following a murder -- has mixed results in terms of reducing crime. This is the case with two blocks that were targets of wraparound operations in the spring of 2012. In one area, the 1900 block of Troy Ave. on the city's West Side, crime declined following the operation there. In another, the 7900 Block of Bennett on the Southeast Side, crime increased following that operation.
Use this map to zoom in to each block (in black) to see what happened to the individuals who were targeted in the operations and also to see how crime levels changed in the surrounding area (in red) following each operation:
