Private security cleaning up Boystown, North Halsted Street?

Written By Chicago News Report on Sunday, July 22, 2012 | 7/22/2012 10:59:00 AM

For the last couple of days, things have been pretty tame in Boystown, particularly on North Halsted Street... now, we know why.

According to the folks at the Take Back Boystown Facebook page, armed security officers, dressed in yellow shirts and bullet proof vests, are patrolling the area.

The private security team was allegedly hired by the Northhalsted Business Alliance.

The Facebook user who initiated the conversation about the extra security said, since the officers' arrival, the streets have been so peaceful, he finally felt comfortable enough to stop at Roscoe's for a drink.

So far, it's unclear how long the guards will be stationed in Boystown.

Chicago News Report contacted the Northhalsted Business Alliance for more details.

If we get a response, we'll follow up on this story.
