Waukegan is located north of Chicago on the western shore of Lake Michigan. It is actually the fifth-largest city on the western shore of Lake Michigan and it is the ninth-largest city in Illinois. Along with that, it is also the county seat of Lake County. Waukegan has a population of 87,901 residents, 27,787 different households, and 19,450 families in the city. There is a median household income of around $42,000, with the majority of their residents between the ages of 25 to 44. In recent years, the residents of Waukegan have seen a steady raise in the crime rate.
Last year, there was an average of 174 crimes committed per square mile. This is slightly higher than the Illinois average of 104 and tremendously higher than the national average of 49.6. To get a better picture of what types of crimes are most common, we look to last year’s statistics. There were a total of 4,148 crimes reported; the majority of them 3,613 were property related and dealt with theft and burglary. Only 535 out of the 4,148 were violent crimes. Property crimes affect far more people and occur more frequently than violent crimes. The chances of a violent crime are 1 in 164, compared to the chances of a property crime, which is 1 in 24. The best way to protect yourself and your family from both these types of crimes is to have a home security system in place in your home and/or business.
