Good morning, everyone, it's 8am. Today, I'm monitoring the North Center community on Chicago's North Side, 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 at all, because not only is it cold, but also because North Center is a safe neighborhood. Tomorrow, I will resume my monitoring of 25. So, back to the topic at hand here, the next neighborhood I will be monitoring is the Near South Side, and I will do that in two weekends from now. I'm delaying it because I'll be monitoring 14 next weekend. Here's crime in North Center for today.
