Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown wears a face mask at a news conference on Monday, July 27, 2020 in Chicago. Police are reporting a drop in homicides and shooting incidents after the department rolled out two units designed to combat gun violence and ensure protests remain peaceful. The city reported three homicides over the weekend compared to 12 the weekend before. It was the first weekend that the 300-member Community Safety Team was dispatched to communities on the West and South sides where there has been an uptick in violent crime.
