focuses on regrouping following losses up and down the ticket on election day. and the university of iowa wants the public to help pay for an exhibit of lions that may once have lived at a zoo in iowa city. you're watching kcrg-tv9. now, from your 24 hour news source, this is kcrg-tv9 news at 10 . police say the amount of crime in chicago is having a clear influence on cedar rapids. talked with police, who say the proximity to the major metropolitan area is just one of the reasons for chicago's impact on cedar rapids. chicago's influence? sgt. doug doyle is a 10- year veteran of the cedar rapids police many officers, time and time again, he's heard people in the community say chicago is a main contributor of local crime. "i think there's a lot of people that push the blame there-- to the people coming

a lot of headlines recently for its high crime rates. as of early september, the city had more than 500 total homicides in 2016, according to the chicago tribune. that outpaces bigger cities of la and new york. combined, those two had about 100 fewer homicides through late august. the sgt. can recall hearing horror stories from visitors to cedar rapids. "a few months back, i met a family that was in town. her children weren't allowed to go play in the front yard for fear of what may happen to them, for there's little doubt that chi-town crime is troubling. but is it really troubling cedar rapids, which, by car, is fewer than four hours away. police chief wayne jerman recently weighed in on the question. "is there an influence, sure. and we're aware of it."it's hard to pinpoint exactly how much of an influence, though. arrest records may offer some insight. data from crpd shows last year nearly 16 percent of those arrested were born in illinois,
10:02 pm
the same for the two previous years. the pd says it's the second highest number of arrests behind those born in iowa-- the majority of arrests. other states were negligible. " we've got to point out the data has two big holes. one-- we don't know if all the people arrested were from chicago specifically-- just that they were from illinois. we also don't know how long those arrested had been in cedar rapids."ultimat ely, though, police think they're seeing a chicago crime influence for a couple reasons. metros always have at least some kind of impact on crime in nearby towns. "minneapolis, kansas city, st. louis, detroit. we've seen and arrested people from all those cities as well. people relocate. they come here and they bring some of those lifestyles with them." another reason... this stuff... heroin. cedar rapids, like many communities across the country is seeing upped numbers of heroin overdoses as the drug becomes more and more available and affordable. dea agents call it an
10:03 pm
heroin found on cedar rapids streets-- that the community is a destination city for drug dealers. "chicago, since it's a major metropolitan area, it's technically the source area for the heroin and what they're doing is transplanting people to the area to distribute that heroin." when it comes to fighting back the chicago influence-- dea agents say they're focused on finding the primary suppliers who bring heroin into the u-s. cutting them off will trickle down to communities like crimes, like gun violence-- cedar rapids has turned to a new program called the police community action team. it doesn't focus on curbing chicago crime specifically, it's much broader. pcat is a flexible team of officers that are sent to patrol at-risk parts of town. officers work in cars are on foot, for varying hours, depending on what a situation dictates. they're there to get to know people and their problems. "they're establishing relationships, positive
10:04 pm
offenders and their families to give them alternatives" sgt. doyle is one of the pcat officers and a big believer in the program. he thinks it's already having an impact since its inception about a year ago. data suggests it could be. in september, the crpd reported overall violent crime in town was down slightly by about a percentage point, compared to the same time the year before. nat officer when it comes to chicago's influence, sgt. doyle only has anecdotal evidence. but, the way he sees it-- former chicagoans are mostly coming here for one commit crime. "they're truly trying to escape what there is in chicago. i think there is a lot of good people that come from chicago. i think some crime comes from chicago-- but a lot of it comes from cedar rapids." even though info is limited, the stats seem to agree. in cedar rapids, forrest saunder, kcrg-tv9 news. there's now a one-thousand dollar reward for information on the person who put this note outside the home of a sudanese- american
