As always, Chicago Loop Alliance encourages everyone to always be aware of standard security procedures and have an Emergency Safety Plan in place. Loop stakeholders are urged to take the following precautions:

  • If you see something, say something. Report suspicious behavior and activity and call 911 if there is an emergency or immediate threat. You can also log on to Crime Prevention and Information Center (CPIC).
  • Get alerts from Notify Chicago on various emergency and non-emergency situations in your area.
  • Business owners should pay attention to the entrance of your business and ensure security cameras are working and focused on the public walkway/street. Walk the outside perimeter of your building regularly.
  • Make sure CLA has current contact information for your business by emailing CLAinfo@chicagoloopalliance.com with full contact information.
