Good morning, everyone, it's 7:45am. A change has come to the Chicago Police Department. Now all of the districts seem to be on the same shift times as the 13th and 14th Districts are. I confirmed it as I turned on Zone 12 at 12am because Dispatch was calling cars like "2522Robert" when 2522 wasn't a Robert unit before and they didn't come out 'til 12:30am. The new shift times are in the comments section of this post. I find this change to beneficial because we'll get two man units earlier in the afternoon now, but at the same time, some night units are one man, so we won't have as much officers at night as we did before. So, here's crime for today.
8:41am - Burglar alarm. 2815 N Ridgeway.
8:42 to 8:49am - Beat car 2521 arrives on scene on Ridgeway at 8:42am. At 8:43am, 2524 pulls up. At 8:45am, 2523 pulls up. The three officers check the building. Then, at 8:48am, Beat car 2521 leaves the scene. A minute later, Beat cars 2523 and 2524 pull off. The job is coded 14Paul.
8:50am - Parker. 1800 block of N Harding. Premits.
8:51am - Beat car 2524 asks for a DOC mission on the Beat. Event number is 04439.
