Hello everyone, welcome to the Avondale/Logan Square Crime Blotter page! I'm Timmy, the creator of the site. This site is about the crime in the Avondale and Logan Square neighborhoods on Chicago's Northwest side. I was inspired by "The Broken Heart of Rogers Park" (made by Craig Gernhardt) and the "Edgewater Crime Blotter" to create this website. Those two websites are very good with details of crime in their areas, so I decided to make a website for crime in my neighborhood, Avondale.
About me: I am a 15 year old male, with a condition known as Autism. You'd think a 15 year old like myself would be comitting lots of crime, or thugging outside, but I don't do that in any way. I'd rather STOP crime in my neighborhood. I attend Sullivan High School, in the Rogers Park neighborhood (it is a pretty decent school, except for when the everyday brawls happen. Read Craig Gernhardt's "The Broken Heart of Rogers Park" about this topic). My hobbies are watching TV, going out on weekends to travel to various places in Chicago (also to take photographs of CTA buses, my favorite hobby of all time), being with family and friends, being on the computer, and of course, listening to Zone 12 on my police scanner.
I am a nice person, but I won't take crap from nobody in comments (if anybody is nice enough to comment) on this blog. Any discrimation or hate in the comments will NOT be tolerated. Also, comments regarding crime are welcome at ANY time, but again, please, no racism or hate.
All information on this crime blotter will be coming from my police scanner, but I may post some Chicago Journal articles (they have a crime blotter for Logan Square as well, but not as extensive on details as I have planned for mine) on crime.
The police district that will be monitored on this blog is the 25th District, Grand Central. I will be covering Beats 2523 (the beat I live on), 2524, 2525 and 2535 (north of North Avenue). I wish I owned another scanner or two to pick up the 14th and 17th Districts (they also cover Avondale/Logan Square), but I don't, so crime info on this blotter will only be coming from the 25th District.
I hope everyone is well informed of crime in the neighborhood by reading this blotter. And, if you can, enjoy!
