Playoff Baseball has begun! To reinforce public safety around the Friendly Confines, Chicago's historic Wrigleyville neighborhood has hired a private security firm to conduct patrols in the area. The heightened security is designed to deter crime, increase public safety, and ensure over served patrons of the local bars don't get into any mischief. This is yet another example of an affluent urban area in America hiring private security to increase safety in additional to municipal police departments that already patrol the area.
