Good morning, everyone, it's 8am. Today, I'm monitoring 17 for our residents North of Belmont. No offense, but I can only wonder how boring it'll be. LOL. Anyway, today is supposed to be sunny with temps in the mid 80s. Here's crime for today.
9:37am - Suspicious person. 2700 W Melrose. Two males lurking around.
10:30am - Beat car 1732 asks for a Community Concern event number for the 3200 block of N Drake. The event number is 05804.
11:53am - Traffic accident. Addison and Kedzie. In the Target parking lot. But Target is at Sacramento and Addison.
11:54am - Not sure if this is related, but Dispatch is getting a call of an EMS run at the Target also. For an elderly female down.
11:57am - Beat 1743 asks for a call back on the 11:53am job. Caller's not flagging him down.
11:58am - The 11:53am job is coded. 1743 says she's not coming out.
12:03pm - The caller from the 11:53am job was found. And, the call is related to the 11:54am job. But she's refusing EMS service. Just wants a police report for the accident.
12:15pm - An RD number has been pulled from the accident. It's HS401901 with the event number of 07289.
1:16pm - Does anyone know about two explosions that occurred at Milwaukee and Central Park this morning around 5am? A commenter tells me that they were so loud that they broke their windows. Any information would be appreciated.

2:19pm - Person down. Addison and Springfield. Intoxicated female down.

10:59pm - Sorry I'm late on this, but to all the cops who read this blog: I'm truly sorry for your loss, regarding the murder of Officer Thor Soderburg. From what I have read about him, he sounds like he was one of the best officers this city could ever ask for. Soderburg really loved his job. It's very tragic for this to have happened. I'm very sure you guys are abouslety sad about it, and I can't even begin to blame you for being in that state. So, you guys, thank you for ALL of your hard work that you've done for the citizens of Chicago. Personally speaking, I will say that I keep all of you in my thoughts and prayers every day. I pray that you make it home to your loved ones every day and/or night, and I pray that God will keep you safe on your tour of duty. So, my word of advice for all of you is to do the best that work you possibly can, because I know that Thor will smile down on you. I know that he is in a better place now. So, in conclusion, I'm very sorry for your loss.
