Ending community policing resulted in fewer solved murder cases?

Washington Post:
An unequal justice: Killings of black people lead to arrests less often

In major U.S. cities, black victims were the least likely of any racial group to have their killings result in an arrest, according to a Post analysis of about 55,000 homicides. The disparity fuels a vicious cycle.
I think you have to weigh the level of cooperation with the police in making arrests.  Baltimore seems to be a place where the police are not welcome into the community to work a case.  I suspect the same may be true in Chicago.  Homicides decreased under community policing but evidently, several people thought it was harassment instead of life-saving.
