Chicago Won't Respond to 911 Calls

Chicago police STOP dispatching officers to 'non-threatening' 911 calls in the midst of crime and budget crisis

By BETH STEBNER, The Daily Mail

Victims of ‘non-threatening’ crimes such as burglaries, thefts, and simple assault in Chicago will no longer be visited by officers when they call 911.

Chicago police are now enforcing an austere new measure where officers are not dispatched to scenes where the offender has fled and where no one is in immediate danger.
The Windy City is in the middle of both a crime and budget crisis, with sprees of violence erupting, even as first responders are forced to drastically slash their budgets.
