Recent safety concerns

Hi All,I'm writing this here because I've recently become somewhat more concerned about violent crime in the village due to the recent backyard robbery and day time carjacking incidents, and I wanted to see how others feel about crime and safety in Oak Park, to gain some perspective on it.

Sounds tasty to me and a welcome addition to the neighborhood!…See More
