Carjackings and thefts have become all too common in the 44th Ward and our neighboring wards. And, up until a week ago, Alderman Tunney wouldn’t acknowledge that we have a problem. But, at the January 2019 CAPS meeting, there was no denying the data and concerns from residents.
As your alderman, Elizabeth will listen to you, and she will listen to the 19th Police District and the beat officers, the men and women on the front lines. Elizabeth pledges to work toward:
Ensuring the 19th Police District has every resource available to do their job, including our full allotment of officers, so that taxpayers can avoid overtime and overworked staff
Elizabeth will inventory all available assets and resources made available to the 19th District and ensure we have received and taken advantage of them
Elizabeth will use data-driven analysis with the help of the University of Chicago Crime Lab to identify trends and root causes in crime
Elizabeth will work with community leaders and experts in juvenile offerers and gang activity to identify root cause and create immediate and long-term solutions
Elizabeth will use texting and social media to push out community action alerts
