    I usually just see one officer in the car behind the house and I don't see the roving car every day. I assume it's there when there is some activity at the mayor's house. But I could be wrong; I'll have to look more closely into the rear car when I go by and pay more attention to who's on Cullom.
    Re the CWB article, at the last CAPS meeting the office in charge said that we have to face the fact that this area won't be assigned more police, even if 1000 more cops are hired.

  • Melannie Bookworm

    The police are vigilant to investigate any cars or persons who are loitering. The mayor makes decisions that are unpopular and therefore needs security as does other officials, such as whoever is currently sitting as POTUS.
    We would not expect the secret service details to be pulled from their job to assist in local, criminal activity. It could be a diversion.
    I would not expect that to happen and I live in the mayor’s “backyard,” one block away.

    Meanwhile, one block north, six Chicago Police officers sit in their "patrol" cars idly watching Mayor Emanuel's house.

    The officers can't respond to other crimes in the neighborhood because that would leave the Mayor's home vulnerable.
