Good morning, everyone, it's 8am. Yep, the title is right. I'm monitoring Lakeview today for those of you who read this blog and live there. I wonder how many calls I'll get today. I don't think a lot, because not only is it cold, but also because Lakeview is a pretty safe neighborhood. Tomorrow, I will resume my monitoring of 25. I will monitor it until 8pm, then I have to go to bed because of final exams this week. Then, on Friday, we have a day off and I will monitor 17 that day, then finally, next Saturday, I may monitor the North Center neighborhood. Here's crime in Lakeview for today.
