"Crime and Community in Edgewater" Exhibit (Past)
If you read the newspapers, you will always find a story about a crime and an investigation. Some of these events are part of your neighborhood history and yet they fade from memory. The Edgewater Historical Society has done the research and presents the exhibit Crime and Community in Edgewater, which runs through July 8, 2012.
The exhibit includes photos, newspapers and the story of the investigation, the work done by law enforcement and the efforts of the community to make their neighborhood safe. These include Community Area Policing (CAPS), which has helped change many neighborhoods in Chicago when people communicate with each other and the police. Click here for more information.
