Good afternoon, everyone, it's 3:24pm. Day #1 of Special Olympics was great. I enjoyed my time there. I did the running long jump, and came in sixth place. Tomorrow, I'll be doing the 100 meter run. I hope I at least get a medal (and that my shoe doesn't fall off again, like last year!). I would've been here sooner (I got home at 3:03), but I was soaking my feet. They were hurting. Anyway, it's kind of warm out. Well, here's crime for this afternoon and early evening.
3:32pm - Landlord/tenant dispute. 3924 W Altgeld. Problem with the landlord.
3:35pm - The 3:32pm job now comes in as a "person w/ a kinfe". Landlord's son took out a knife on the caller and their children. Caller is terrified.
3:38pm - Now the 3:32pm job is coming in as a "battery in progress".
3:39pm - Sex offender. 1923 N Harding. Two people makin' love in the alley.
3:40pm - Multiple units en route to Altgeld. I spotted about three units speeding down Diversey towards Hamlin just now.
4:34pm - 1) Traffic accident. Ridgeway and Oakdale. Someone backed in the caller's car. 2) Disturbance. 3640 W Oakdale. Five drinkers in the alley.
4:45pm - Theft. Pulaski and Wabansia. On CTA bus #6529, which is facing north, a passenger had their I-Phone stolen buy a guy who's still on the bus.
4:56pm - Both 4:34pm jobs are coded.
4:59pm - Disturbance. Koz Park. Men drinking in the northwest corner of the park.
5:18pm - Gang disturbance. George and Avers. They're arguing.
5:24pm - EMS run. 2521 N Pulaski. There's a gas leak.
5:35pm - The 5:24pm job isn't life threatening. It's actual already being cleaned up. Just some light traffic control being done on Pulaski. The units that responded should be clear soon.
5:39pm - Backlog in 25 at 17:39 hours.
5:43pm - The 5:24pm scene is completely cleared up. The units are up and available for jobs.

6:28pm - Disturbance. 2959 N Hamlin.
6:37pm - Beat 2563Eddie is doing a gang suppression mission from Wellington-Pulaski-Diversey-Ridgeway. I'm thinking this is to particulary target the corner of George and Avers, which has had LOTS of gang problems lately.
6:55pm - I have to go eat. I'll be back.

7:49pm - Reckless driver. Fullerton and Pulaski. Female in a maroon car speeding towards Harding.
7:56pm - Beat 2563E is going in with one from 2849 N Springfield. They need another 2563 unit to come do the mission while they go into 25.
