2014 -- Crime Incidents -- Down 30% in November, Down 11% for 2014
**********************************************************

2014 Trends in Crime Incidents -- Remain Proactive!!!

After a spike in crime incidents earlier this year, the year started trending down following police and city officials addressing key problem buildings. The southern half of our beat has seen crime incidents falling faster than the northern half. The northern half, especially the northwest quadrant, saw crime increase in the Spring; fortunately, several arrests in the 2000 Birchwood block are check that.

The Top 5 crime categories in 2013 were, in order: Theft, Miscellaneous (big catchall category of nonviolent crimes), Vandalism, Domestic Battery, Drug Use .. see chart below, October Year-to-Year).

In 2014, year to date, the Top 5 are, in order: Theft (not the same as Robbery), Vandalism, Miscellaneous, Domestic Battery, Simple Battery.

BE PROACTIVE, call 911--aggressively if necessary, keep police informed, and call city services about problem landlords and buildings. Being proactive on your block remains the NUMBER ONE way to continue to push down crime.

PARTNERSHIP with POLICE -- What helps drive down crime incidents is our partnership with the police. Police need to know that neighbors remain concerned and willing to be involved in improving the quality of life in our area .. so PLEASE attend CAPS meeting. You don't have to go every month, but try and add the monthly meeting to your schedule (see note below re: change in meeting schedule).

To continue to see declines in crime incidents, watch your block! So far this year, 63% of blocks in our area have seen a decline in crime incidents, with 9% reporting no change. Unfortunately, 28% saw an increase in crime incidents. The largest increase in incidents remains in the northwest quadrant of our beat: area bounded by Damen to Ridge and Howard to Rogers . Other notable increases were on the following blocks 7200 & 7400 Clark, 7300 and 7400 Rogers, 6900 & 7400 Wolcott, 1700 & 1900 Lunt, 1900 & 2000 Greenleaf, 1900 Pratt, and 1800 & 1900 Estes.

It takes persistence attention to your block to bring down crime incidents. The police can't reduce crime without our help .. improving neighborhoods is more than calling 911, you also need to call 311 and the alderman's office about problem buildings, graffiti, street light bulbs that need changing, trees that need trimming, etc.

Be a positive presence on your block (set up a block e-mail and phone/text tree ... stay connected with your neighbors, it's the No. 1 best crime deterrent). You and your neighbors working together are the "secret crime-fighting weapon."

**********************************************************
<b>Next CAPS meeting is TUESDAY, Nov. 18, 2014, at Pottawattomie Park, 7340 N. Rogers -- this will be a meeting focusing on BEAT 2424 ONLY! .. TIME: 7pm to 8 pm ... starts on time; end on time. Going forward, we will be meeting the THIRD TUESDAY of the month. This change resulted from resident feedback, so please make time to attend. Thank you!

2014 -- Crime Incidents -- Down 6% in October, Down 10% for 2014

2014 Trends in Crime Incidents -- Remain Proactive!!!

Even though things heated a bit in the second half of October, crime incidents remain down. The southern half of our beat has seen crime incidents falling faster than the northern half. The northern half, especially the northwest quadrant, saw crime increase in the Spring; fortunately, several arrests in the 2000 Birchwood block are check that (see Problem Buildings Drive Crime, below).

Last year, there were 756 incidents (year to date; across 24 different categories). The Top 5 crime categories in 2013 were, in order: Theft, Miscellaneous (big catchall category of nonviolent crimes), Vandalism, Domestic Battery, Drug Use .. see chart below, October Year-to-Year).

In 2014, year to date, there were 683 incidents, a drop of 10% (in 2012, there were 840 incidents). In 2014 the Top 5 are, in order: Theft, Miscellaneous, Vandalism, Domestic Battery, Simple Battery.

NEW ISSUE -- neighbors report what appears to be drug purchases by teens enroute to the UNO charter school on Ridge. These purchases reportedly are taking place near the convenience store at 7300 Rogers (corner of Rogers and Damen) and on Jarvis. If you see transactions taking place, please call 911.

PROBLEM BUILDINGS DRIVE CRIME
Starting early this Spring, there has been a noticeable uptick of crime incidents in what I refer to as the northwest quadrant of our beat (Jarvis to Howard, Damen to Ridge). Of the 3 shootings in 2014, 2 of occurred in this area: on Ridge (between Fargo & Birchwood), and across from 2040 W. Birchwood. I feel strongly that this uptick has been driven by incidents in and around 2040 W Birchwood, which went into foreclosure in late 2013 and, with nonexistent management, became a magnet for gangbangers (both in Chicago and Evanston). A receiver was recently appointed by the court. He has initially only evicted the people that occupied the first floor. However, city officials have advised him of ongoing problems. Fortunately, police are focusing attention on the building and neighbors are calling more aggressively .. resulting in 5 arrests in October on the block, 4 within one week.

BE PROACTIVE, call 911--aggressively if necessary, keep police informed, and call city services about problem landlords and buildings. Being proactive on your block remains the NUMBER ONE way to continue to push down crime.

Crime Incidents by YEAR by BLOCK .. page 1 of 2 .. all years are full year, except 2014, which is year to date. Crime incidents are 10% year to date, compared to 2013. Change 13/12 = change from 2012 to 2013. Change 2008=change from 2008 to 2013. Comparisons are not to 2014, because it is not a full year of data.
