Chicago Police Stations in the City

By: Esther Ma

Many communities in Chicago feel unsafe in their neighborhood because of all the crime outside of their home. The only thing the city can do is to send people out in the communities and protect. That would be the Chicago Police Department because they’re trained to take on anything they might be faced with.

According to the Chicago Data Portal, there are twenty- three police stations spread out across Chicago. In 2010, there was an estimate of 13,318 active police officers and it’s been increasing every single year. As shown on the map below, police stations are spread out across the city, but it seems like some neighborhoods don’t have a police station near them at all.
