Chicago, formally the City of Chicago, is the most populous city in the United States, and the third most populous city overall, behind New York and Los Angeles. It is also the most populated city in the Midwest and the sixth most populous city in North America, with an estimated population of 2,693,976 in 2019. Chicago is the county seat of Cook County, Illinois, which is the country's second most populated county.

Chicago has surpassed New York City as the American city with the most carjackings as of 2021. After 2019, Chicago had a significant increase in carjackings, with at least 1,415 such incidents reported in the city in 2020. According to the Chicago Police Department, carjackers are efficiently blending in with the population and concealing their identity by wearing face masks that are commonly used because to the continuing COVID-19 outbreak. Mayor Lightfoot declared the rising wave of carjackings to be "top of mind" on January 27, 2021, and assigned 40 police personnel to the CPD carjacking squad.
