Living in Chicago

  • Wealthy neighborhoods in northern Chicago have begun hiring private security contractors to patrol their streets and act as a deterrent to soaring crime
  • The contractors consist of off-duty police who carry guns, and surveil the neighborhoods in marked cars equipped with cameras and flashing lights
  • Crime has continued to spike across Chicago, with even some of its wealthiest neighborhoods seeing surges as high as 86% in 2022 from this time last year
  •  One section of the leafy Lincoln Park neighborhood asked residents to donate $100 to in an effort to raise $175,000 for a years' worth of security services
