Chicago Police Deployment Scheme Results in Inequitable, Unfair Service For Minority Neighborhoods, Suit Says

CHICAGO, Oct. 27, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Chicago officials have failed to deploy police equitably across the City’s many diverse neighborhoods, resulting in disproportionate numbers of delayed police responses to those neighborhoods with higher minority populations, according to the American Civil Liberties Union of Illinois and a community group from the West side Austin neighborhood.   The ACLU of Illinois and the Central Austin Neighborhood Association (CANA) today filed a lawsuit in Cook County court asking the City to deploy police officers more equitably to serve all communities across Chicago.  The ACLU of Illinois’ membership includes persons in the Austin neighborhood as well as all of the other underrepresented districts.   The lawsuit follows a host of recent coverage about police deployment in the City of Chicago.   These reports reveal that minority neighborhoods have disproportionately lower number of officers than white districts as measured by response rates to emergency calls and rates of serious violent crimes.
