Logan Square demands more police

Lakeview has nearly twice as many police officers per resident as Logan Square, according to the Logan Square Neighborhood Association.

That’s despite the fact that Logan Square’s 25th district has 30 public schools — and Lakeview’s 23rd district has only nine.

LSNA has invited Police Superintendent Jody Weis to its 46th annual congress (Tuesday, May 20, 6:30 p.m. at McAuliffe Elementary, 1841 N. Springfield) to respond to their call for equity among police districts.

LSNA has organized parent patrols at local schools and a parent-to-parent visitation program to contact parents of truant high school students.  The group also coordinates a summer jobs for youth program.

“We deserve our fair share of police resources,” said LSNA leader Jessica Salazar, who is active at Mozart Elementary.
