As a follow up to yesterday's post regarding the drop in the national violent crime rate we can report that the crime rate in Chicago has dropped as well. Crime is down 12 percent in Chicago over the same period last year while the murder rate is down 10 percent over this time last year. There's been a total of 450 murders so far compared to 504 at the same time last year. The decline comes after last year's double digit increase in the number of murders.
