Chicagoans hearing a lot or a little about crime, depending on where they live

Chicago Public Radio reporters Chip Mitchell and Odette Yousef report that depending on where you live, voters have been hearing more – or less – about crime from the candidates running for Chicago City Council.

Talk of crime is loud on Chicago’s North Side, where there’s relatively little violence, WBEZ reports. But it’s much softer some say on the city’s West Side, where there’s more crime.

This 12-minute special report examines Chicago politics and a rumored plan for police beat alignment – shifting more officers to crime-ridden areas and away from safer neighborhoods.
