The CTA today released crime stats that showed big drops in most categories of transit crime in the first half of this compared to the same period in 2013.
Robberies were down 35 percent, and thefts dropped 18 percent.
But do you feel safe on the CTA? Take the quick poll below and let us know. Your perception is reality for you.
The CTA has made many safety improvements in the last three years, including "expanding police patrols and rail saturation missions on the CTA system; increased undercover operations targeting pick-pocket theft rings, vandalism and other crimes; and the huge expansion of CTA’s bus and rail surveillance camera network to more than 23,000 cameras, which have significantly aided in making arrests and securing convictions."
I'm actually impressed and do feel safer personally.
But it doesn't matter what I think. What do you think?
