Chicago group creates Safe Passage route for city postal carriers
CHICAGO – A Chicago group is creating a Safe Passage route for Illinois postal carriers who they say have been victims of violent crimes.
On Thursday, Southside residents and community leaders gathered at 72nd and Calumet to announce the creation of a “Safe Passage, Safe Package” program.
“Not only are we concerned about each other, we also concerned about our package carriers. We want them to know that when they come here, we are watching,” said Mrs. Peter, pastor of St. James Community Church and Safe Passage, Safe Package organizer.
