2014 Robbery Totals

*Given the recent revelations about the CPD’s data set here and here and here, we’re questioning the validity of the data found within the city’s data portal, therefore a big ass asterisk is in order.

Police Scanner Frequencies

If you’re local and want to hear all the murder and mayhem for yourself, invest in a quality scanner and tune in to the frequencies below. If you’re not local, head over to either the Apple or Google app store and download one or check out Broadcastify’s Live Audio Feeds. (Protip: actual scanners are better than the apps.)

*Source Data & Editor’s Note

We compile our own dataset using the following sources: Chicago Tribune, Chicago Sun-TimesDNAInfo Chicago, Chicago Redeye Homicide Tracker, NBC5 Chicago, City of Chicago Data Portal and CPD CLEARMAP.

Editor’s note: A homicide, regardless of type, within the city limits of Chicago counts towards our total metric. CPD-involved, ISP-involved and justifiable homicides all count. Reckless homicides may count if the Medical Examiner rules that the cause of death was a homicide. Suicides do not count. Additional definitions can be found on the Glossary page.
