If you weren’t able to make last week’s Chicago Police Department CAPS meeting for Wrigleyville and Boystown’s beats 1923 and 1925, you have another chance to experience the blood boiling BS session this Thursday.
Beats 1924 and 1933, which cover the area from Addison to Diversey and Halsted to Southport/Lincoln, will meet at Illinois Masonic Medical Center, 836 W. Wellington, at 7PM. The meeting is usually held in the Olson Auditorium. The front desk will point you in the right direction and signs should be posted.
You are welcome even if you do not live in the specified areas. Activity in these two beats has a direct impact on crime throughout our neighborhoods. 1924 and 1933 include the problem plagued Belmont Avenue corridor, including the Belmont/Sheffield intersection, and the Belmont L station.
So, pop and extra blood pressure pill and stop in. If you don’t have high blood pressure, borrow a pill from someone who does. You’ll need it. And, hey, if the pills don’t work, one of the best emergency room teams in Chicago will be just steps away.
