Serious crime in Elgin at 40-year low - DailyHerald.com

Zero murders in Aurora last year, and now Elgin racks up the lowest crime rate in forty years.  Would Rahm or McCarthy ever wander out from Chicago and ask Chief Swoboda how?

Crime in Elgin is at a 40-year low for serious crimes, according to 2012 crime data released Thursday by the Elgin Police Department.

Last year, there were only two homicides, compared to five in 2011, along with a 36 percent decrease in burglaries and a 24 percent decrease in rape and criminal sexual assault, Police Chief Jeff Swoboda said.
