Mission: To provide community support in fighting and preventing crime.
Programs: Publications - the organization is currently working on updating the gang book. Previous editions of the gang book detailed the overview of the street gangs and have been donated to the chicago police department, chicago public schools and numerous others in criminal justice and law enforcement throughout the state of illinois for use as a training tool and guide. The book's widespread national media coverage has spurred the introduction of new gang reduction legislation and the establishment of collaborative gang reduction task forces throughout the greater chicagoland area.
reporting public corruption and crime anonymously - our unique and innovative internet public corruption crime reporting system gives government employees and citizens access to a complete web-based and automated reporting tool to reach law enforcement anonymously. Citizens who are uncomfortable, for whatever reason, in contacting local law enforcement can remain anonymous, unless the person calling chooses to give their own personal information. The information received is forwarded to an appropriate enforcement agency.
crime history preservation, archives and publications - housing one of the oldest and most complete archives on organized crime throughout the past century, the chicago crime commission has opened its vault to researchers and journalist to educate the public about lessons from the past - both successes and failures in law enforcement initiatives and criminal activities.
