CHICAGO (CBS) — Growing concern over a recent late night crime spree on the streets of Lakeview helped spur an effort to get local residents to walk the streets overnight to bring attention to crime hot spots.
CBS 2’s Mike Parker reports the effort led by Ald. Tom Tunney (44th) included a pledge to bring peace back to the streets.
“I’d love to see more of a police presence. Obviously, our community is seeing it, and tonight we have it. We’d like to see it more often,” Tunney said. “I’m very, very supportive of what strategies they’re using to make sure our neighborhoods stay safe.”
