Shamefully, the same can not be said for Chicago, Illinois. Homicide rates have likely gone waaay up in Chicago, but more critically, rates of robbery, shootings, assaults, carjackings, and such are through the roof in Chicago, especially with all the lethal flash mobs at work causing nonstop mayhem all over Chicago.

Probably because more and more people in Fort Myers and Southwest Florida are getting involved with the local police departments, including the Fort Myers Police Department (FMPD). Even recently, the FMPD has been really inching it's roots into the Dunbar neighborhood, getting more Dunbarans to lose their fear of reporting criminal activity. In Illinois, not only does nobody like to get involved in community safety, but there are police departments that are lazy and just sit on their big lead rears while the cities they are supposed to serve and protect all crumble under the weight of crime. Cities such as especially East St Louis, Chicago Heights, Ford Heights, Harvey, Cicero, and others.
Unlike the police departments of the above cities mentioned, the FMPD does not play around. Neither does the Cape Coral Police Department (CCPD). When a crime occurs, they investigate. And they don't stop until the suspect or suspects are in custody.
