Thus far, 500 additional officers have been allocated to Area 3, which includes the 018th District.
Officers are stationed on foot and deployed in roaming vehicles 24 hours a day, including overnight shifts.
To strengthen the City's rapid and agile response to looting incidents, the Department will deploy officers from the impacted District, the Critical Incident Response Team, and the Community Safety team to the affected location.
Additionally, City resources, including Streets and Sanitation vehicles, will be mobilized to assist CPD in maintaining control of the area through tactics such as traffic control. These resource deployments will ensure CPD has adequate coverage to protect businesses.
We have also been advised of structural changes including installation of structures like bollards and planters to control traffic, as well as adjusted traffic flow on major commercial corridors including Michigan Avenue, State Street, and Roosevelt Road.
