    The police haven’t been patroling this neighborhood like they use to. This neighborhood isn’t all that bad but there is a gang presence and alot of vandalism to boot. Alot of car window’s have been broken and alot of mischief activity in the parks. This is a wonderful and diverse community, with all the parks it brings alot of people out when the weahter get’s better, but it alos brings outsiders and gang activity too! I think the police should stop focusing on their revenue aka writting tickets and start acting like police officers and get these criminals off the streets. there is a war brewing in albany park between latin kings(gold and black) and blackstones(red snd black), you can see it on the daily. DO YOUR JOB PROTECT AND SERVE!
