People Doing Drugs In A Ford, Barking Dog On Point

Good morning, everyone, it's 12am. It's a clear night, but warm as well, with temps in the mid to upper 40s right now. I think we might hit 50 or higher today, which would be nice, but at the same time, bad. The weather would be enjoyable, but that would probably send crime through the roof. Anyway, I'm finishing off my monitoring of 14 today. I'm monitoring 14 from now until the first call after midnight, then I'm done for the night until 8am, at which time I'll come back and blog until 8:30. At 8:30, I'll stop monitoring until 8:47, at which time I'll come back to blog until 11:25. At 11:25, I'll be taking a break until 11:38. At 11:38, I'm coming back until 1:15pm, at which time I'm going to be done blogging until after my dinner. Once 1:15 hits, I won't be blogging 14 for the rest of the month, unless something major happens, and I'll be coming back with 25 after my dinner. In that case, here's crime for portions of today.

12:13am - 1) Narcotics. Lyndale and Drake. Group in a gold Ford Taurus doing drugs. 2) Barking dog. 21XX N Point.

Two are currently in custody, one is at large. Let's just say this foot chase was the most intense I've ever heard in my life. It's like something you'd see in one of those cop shows. For more coverage on the chase, please take a look at my other blog, "Timmy's Chicago Crime Blotter". Obviously, with all of this going on, NO calls have been dispatched. Instead, they're being sent to the computers. And, it might not be long until some officers from 25 are dispatched to help clear 15 out of the backlog.

10:47pm - Criminal trespass. Cortland and Springfield. People in a vacant building are trashing the place.

10:49pm - This chase is now over. I repeat, it is done. They've got the suspect in custody. What a great, great job to the officers in 15!!! This goes to ALL other personnel that help. You guys are excellent. THANK YOU for your very hard work tonight, guys.

Sounds like the typical nonsense calls. Barking dog? Guys doing drugs in a car? Is this is what folks call the cops for?Perhaps the mayor is right, the police dept. is over-staffed. To save the budget, cuts across the boards.

Gang suppression mission at 8 in the morning? Man, gangbangers are all sleeping at that time. Just more cops doing nothing but hiding on bogus nonsense.

Saw on a police blog they're gonna re-map the entire police district system. We're all moving to 13. But will we get 13's officers instead of the losers in 025?

Chaz, while I agree that the barking dog calls are nonsense, I disagree with everything else ou said. Guys doing drugs in a car IS a crime, and no, the CPD is NOT over-staffed. They're under-staffed, if anything. I don't know what you're seeing, but we definitely don't have enough cops.

Anonymous 8:43, I would say different if I looked at that 9:39am call at Wabansia and Kimball...

Anonymous 12:15, do you have a link to this particular post that mentions us moving to 13? Or a map showing this? Where would 25 be at? I gotta be honest, some of those cops in 25 ARE losers, but most of them aren't. In fact, I like most of the cops in 25 A LOT better than most of the ones in 13. In my opinion, most of the coopers in 13 are almost as bad as the ones in 14.
