In 1990, Congress enacted the Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act (Title II of
Public Law 101-542), which amended the higher Education Act of 1965 (HEA). This act
required all postsecondary institutions participating in Title IV student financial
aid programs to disclose campus crime statistics and security information.
1998 amendments renamed the law the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Police
and Campus Crime Statistics Act.
The Chicago Police Department developed this web application to provide residents
of the City of Chicago with a tool to assist them in problem-solving and combating
crime and disorder in their neighborhoods. It is based upon the CLEAR (Citizen Law
Enforcement Analysis and Reporting) system developed by the Department for use by
its police officers.
This web application enables you to search the Chicago Police Department's database
of reported crime. You will be able to see maps, graphs, and tables of reported crime.
The database contains 90 days of information which you can access in blocks of up
to 14 days. Data is refreshed daily. However, the most recent information is back-dated
7 days from today's date.
