Executive summary January - May June - December January – March 2012 Lay the groundwork Align efforts & launch new programs Mobilize communities, measure results Mayor Emanuel and President Preckwinkle have tasked a leadership group with closing the gap with peer cities and cutting violence in half. Our goals: We will cut violence in half in ten years and get halfway there by 2015. The reduction in violence will be sustainable long-term, because we will focus equally on community stabilization. As a result of our efforts, the Chicago region will be measurably safer, and people will feel safe in each neighborhood. More stable communities will empower residents and offer more options for work, school, and shopping within your own neighborhoods.
