Alderman Tunney has spoken to Supt. McCarthy’s office about how imperative it is that we receive more police manpower in the 19th District.
He has formally asked for a deployment operation to be assigned to our area every weekend on the midnight shift to supplement our 19th District entertainment detail.
He has also asked to have a permanent Mass Transit Police Detail assigned to the Belmont ‘L’ station every weekend from 10:00pm-5:00am for the safety of our residents and visitors.
Our office continues to work with the Chicago Police Department and neighbors to do more to keep our community safe.
I encourage you to join us in attending the CAPS meeting tonight at 7:00pm at the 19th District (850 W. Addison) to discuss further safety strategies and concerns.
