TOP 5 CRIMES last 6 years. You might be surprised. Theft remains #1. .. Drug is #5 (down nearly 50% since 2008). Unfortunately, Domestic Violence (Battery) notched up to #4, increasing to 2010 levels.

2013 -- Crime Incidents -- Down 11% for 2013; down 20% 2008

Crime Stats in posts below
**********************************************************
2013 Trends in Crime Incidents -- Remain Proactive!!!

STUNNING DECLINE -- Crime incidents have been in rapid decline since late this summer. In July, crime incidents were up 13%, then declined 17% August, followed by a near unbelievable decline of 41% in September (as compared to the same time last year). Though crime incidents were flat in October, the last two months of the year saw a return to a decline in crime stats .. declining 7% in November, then 30% in December!

For the first time in 5 years, total crime stats are below 1,000 per year: 889. The 24th District (Rogers Park and West Ridge, primarily) is one of a handful of districts reporting large declines in crime stats.

While all this is great news, it is important to remember that while we are seeing big declines we must remain proactive if we expect the trend to continue. Being PROACTIVE (calling 911 aggressively, keeping police informed, and calling city services about problem landlords and buildings) remains the NUMBER ONE way to continue to push down crime.

What helped start the drive to declining numbers 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 to your schedule perhaps every other month.

PARTNERSHIP with POLICE -- What is helping drive down crime incidents is a continued strong arrest rate. Our annual rate of 1 arrests for each 3.5 crime incident is an amazingly high success rate. In most areas, 1 arrest for every 5 crimes is considered great. Following the spike in crime incidents in 2011, arrest rates also started to increase .. this has helped push crime incidents down. The rate of arrest is slowing (was 1 in 3 last year). This is not bad news however. A slowing arrest rate in conjunction with a decline in crime incidents is great news.

MAJOR CONCERNS

Domestic Battery, I'm sad to report, is still one of our Top 5 crimes and is still up. Total incidents in 2013 were 102, compared to 91 in 2012 .. an increase of 12%! Fortunately, there are support services available in our area .. contact police and/or local communities group (www.northsidecommunityresources.org ) .. please contact them if you need assistance or are aware of a neighbor who does. Other Batteries are down between 4% to 13%.

Simple Assaults are down 18%, unfortunately Aggravated Assaults are up. Assault is generally defined as the "threat" of battery. Aggravated suggests a weapon was present when the assault occurred. Fortunately, in real numbers there are few incidents. There were only 14 aggravated assaults in 2013 as compared to 11 in 2012. Most assaults and batteries take place on private property, not in public.

Theft and Vandalism are both down in 2013: 7% and 13% respectively. Remember to be aware of your surroundings when out, especially when on a smart phone .... and please report all vandalism, especially graffiti to police via http://www.caps24.org .

If you want continued declines in crime incidents, watch your block! ... and Call 911 Aggressively!.

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."

Next CAPS meeting is Thursday, Jan. 23, 2014, at the CMSA, 7212 N. Clark -- this is a joint meeting with beats 2422 and 2423. 7pm to 8 pm ... starts on time; end on time

Daytime Snow Emergency Issued for Jan. 2-3 and Snow Route Parking Ban Starts at 11pm Jan. 2

snow
EVANSTON, IL – The City of Evanston has declared a Snow Emergency between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. for Thursday, January 2 and Friday, January 3, 2014 and a Snow Route Parking Ban for Thursday, January 2.


SNOW EMERGENCY
Snow Emergencies apply to streets with parking on both sides which are not posted as Snow Routes.



** Parking is NOT allowed on the even-numbered sides of the street on January 2; vehicles must be parked on the odd number sides of the streets.

** Parking is NOT allowed on the odd-numbered sides of the street on January 3; vehicles must be parked on the even number side of the streets.




The City's emergency sirens will sound at 7:15 a.m. and 12:15 p.m. on Snow Emergency days. Cars parked illegally during Snow Emergencies are subject to a $55 ticket and a $150 towing fine.



When community members move their cars to nearby side streets, they are reminded to follow the snow clearing regulations for that side street. Most streets with parking on one side only now have permanent "ODD" or "EVEN" date signs that allow them to be plowed during snow emergencies.

SNOW ROUTE PARKING BAN
The City of Evanston has declared a Snow Route Parking Ban for Thursday, January 2. Community members are requested to park according to the red, white and blue signs on the streets to allow the city to effectively clear the snow. Emergency sirens will sound at 8:15 p.m. to remind community members to move their cars on nights snow route parking bans are in effect after an accumulation of two inches of snow.



During the Snow Route Parking Ban, main thoroughfares in Evanston designated as Snow Routes will be cleared first, and parking is illegal on these streets between 11 p.m. on January 2 and 6 a.m. on January 3. See map here.


Even if plows have been through, snow removal operations may require return visits by city trucks. The fine for violating the Snow Route Parking ban is $55 plus towing and storage charges.



When community members move their cars to nearby side streets, they are reminded to follow the snow clearing regulations for that side street.



Inquiries about snow removal should be directed to 3-1-1 or www.cityofevanston.org/311.



For updates on Evanston's snow situation, tune in at AM1650, turn on Cable Channel 16, visit the City's web site, www.cityofevanston.org, visit the City's Facebook/Twitter/City Blog from its home page, sign up for e-News alerts on City's home page or call 847-864-SNOW for a recorded message.
