Many residents are unaware of the numerous resources they have to keep up with safety and security issues in their neighborhood. Everyone who has a stake in their neighborhood should be fully informed on how to communicate with their Police District and meet the officers who patrol their streets.
The CAPS (Community Alternative Policing Strategy) program is the best resource we can use to stay informed. Monthly beat meetings give residents the opportunity to draw the police’s attention to issues they feel are important and to converse with the police personnel assigned to their neighborhoods.
I am proud to say that all of the Beat Meetings that are completely in the 2nd Ward boundaries are attended by my staff.
