After initiatives to defund the police, crime in Chicago has increased into a full-blown crisis. And it’s not just limited to the city itself. Violent criminals running rampant throughout the city are now making their way west into our community. This is no longer just a Chicago problem- it’s our problem too.

The people of this district should not have to live in fear. We must stand with law enforcement and provide them with the tools and resources they need to bring criminals to justice and keep our families safe.
