Chicago, IL – Chicago gang members now outnumber cops at least nine to one as crime rates continue to skyrocket throughout the city.
That ratio could be even more dire due to the fact that a staggering number of Chicago police officers are resigning or retiring, depleting the agency’s 13,000-member force even further, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.
Chicago Alderman Ray Lopez revealed on Sunday that the Chicago Police Department (CPD) is currently on track to witness “one of the highest retirement numbers in the city’s history” by the end of the year.
According to the Chicago Police Pension Board, 363 officers left CPD between Jan. 1 and June 30, easily surpassing the 339 officers who left the force in all of 2018, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.
Another 56 officers are slated to wrap up their CPD careers this month alone.
CPD had 475 retirements in 2019 and 560 in 2020, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.
Conversely, Chicago’s 55 known gangs boast membership of approximately 117,000, Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown said last year, according to the New York Post.
