Chicago Police in the Logan Square neighborhood now have a Strategic Decision Support Center in their district.

The center will serve as a dedicated intelligence hub where police can monitor developments in crime, including gang conflicts, in real time, says a news report.

The center will also allow police to better predict where crimes may occur and respond more quickly to gunfire, the report says.

As of year’s end, the Chicago Police Department had expanded the number of districts that have such centers, but they have been operating the longest in the Harrison and Englewood districts, which are still among the most violent in the city, the report notes.
