Domestic Violence- Why is it on the rise in Chatham?

At the recent CAPS meeting for Beat 631(79th king to 83rd Ingleside) it was reported that domestic violence calls in the area have increased. The calls have increased to the point where Beat 631 is in the top 10 in the city.

Mrs. Aileen Robinson from the police department stated that there could be two reasons why the increase. One being good and that the increase is attributed to residents being more informed and are calling. The second reason is that there is an actual increase of incidents occurring.

The Chicago Police define the following as domestic violence:

Elder Abuse

Child Abuse

Male/Female Relations

Infant Abuse

We will have Mrs. Robinson post some information at a later date but if you have a problem with domestic violence please visit .
