Crime Lab Innovation for a Safe Chicago

Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Chicago Police Department (CPD) Superintendent Eddie Johnson and the University of Chicago Crime Lab today joined philanthropist and Citadel CEO Ken Griffin to announce the launch of a new initiative to reduce violent crime in Chicago. The $10 million grant will accelerate proven crime reduction programs, advance technology and data analytics, expand officer training and support, and launch a new innovation fund to help make Chicago a safe place to live and work. The grant builds on Mayor Emanuel's comprehensive public safety strategy, outlined in October 2016, to promote effective and equitable policing -- a cornerstone of public safety.
