The 20th District

The 20th Police District in Chicago is boundaried by Lake Michigan on the East, the East Branch of the Chicago River on the West, Lawrence Ave. to the South and Peterson Ave. to the North. It contains portions of the 40th, 46th, 47th, and 48th wards.  As of the 2020 census, the 20th District had 91,800 residents.

In 2021 it reported the fewest number of incidents of crime of any police district in the city, and it is considered to be one of the safest police districts in the City of Chicago in terms of reported incidents of crime.

For too long, the Chicago Police Department has operated with little accountability or oversight from the communities it exists to serve. Our systems of public safety have been broken because the community has had no voice or power over policing. Our movement is changing that through the District Council.


District Council Members will:

  • Serve as community public safety liaisons

  • Hold monthly open meetings in the district to build relationships and connect our community

  • Develop and expand public safety initiatives in the district and city-wide

  • Educate the community about public safety services already available in the district and city



Join US!

We are always looking for volunteers to join us as we knock doors, call our neighbors, and come together as a community to fight for change.
