MISSION ACCOMPLISHED: Neighborhood Officially Sets 3rd Consecutive Robbery Record

We did it!  Newly-released city records have made it official. 2013 has broken 2012’s record for the most robberies in our neighborhood. In turn, 2012 broke the record set by 2011.

At 7:20PM last Tuesday, December 10, Wrigleyville and Boystown recorded their 234th robbery of the year when a victim was targeted in a strong arm robbery attempt near the corner of Cornelia and Elaine Place, one block east of Halsted. CPD case #HW566195.

That’s three record-breaking years in a row.

What are your elected officials and police executives doing to ensure that 2014 won’t be the fourth consecutive record-breaking year?

CWBChicago was created in 2013 by five residents of Wrigleyville and Boystown who had grown disheartened with inaccurate information that was being provided at local Community Policing (CAPS) meetings. Our coverage area has expanded since then to cover Lincoln Park, River North, The Loop, Uptown, and other North Side Areas. But our mission remains unchanged: To provide original public safety reporting with better context and greater detail than mainstream media outlets. Our editorial email address is news@cwbchicago.com
