Worse is complicated, it's actually less dangerous these days than in the 90s, but that's a fluke of people fleeing the city during the housing boom.

The cops don't pull over to help anybody except in a scant few places like the museum district / university and over by the sports stadiums and outside the casinos.

There are a handful of places even the cops won't go like Brightmore and the MLK projects, but they're easy enough to stay out of since there's nothing good there anyway.
