What about the Sheriff's Department? Is the sheriff an elected position in Cook County? They have 6900 sworn members who patrol the unincorporated
Cook County. I have not read much about high crime in the area. They must be successful at their job and not such crooks. Hire more sheriffs,
members of the city community. Curfews.
"The Cook County Sheriff's Office is the principal law enforcement agency that serves Cook County, Illinois. It is the second largest sheriff's
department in the United States, with over 6,900 members when at full operational strength. It is headed by the Sheriff of Cook County, currently
Thomas Dart. Due to its size the Cook County Sheriff's Office divides its operations by task into several departments, the most recognizable of which
are the Cook County Sheriff's Police Department, the Court Services Division, and the Cook County Sheriff's Department of Corrections."
"The Cook County Sheriff's Boot Camp is designed to provide non-violent offenders a strict detention program based on military discipline, fundamental
vocational skills, education and alcohol/substance abuse treatment. In addition, the boot camp features an eight-month-long post-detention supervision
program where participants must return to the boot camp on a daily basis to continue educational programming."
