Greektown Security Update
The SSA #16 continues to prioritize its ongoing security program in partnership with AGB Security. This includes an additional layer of security for local businesses and patrons through a program of regular community policing within Greektown.
The security program provides one car patrol and two uniformed armed security guards in and around the neighborhood four days a week. AGB’s highly trained tactical officers use problem-solving techniques to quickly defuse potentially dangerous situations and deter crime within Greektown Chicago. The officers work closely with each business in the area to assist with anything they may need, responding quickly when breaches of security arise. The security officers also provide detailed weekly reports highlighting other items of concern in the area (e.g. broken streetlights, loitering, abandoned cars, commercial vacancies, unsecured buildings, etc.) As a result of the security program, AGB has cleared aggressive panhandling and improved traffic flow through Greektown.
The SSA #16 is confident that a continued focus on safety and AGB’s added presence will provide positive improvements in Greektown to ensure safety and security in the neighborhood.
