Halloween 2012

Good afternoon, everyone, it's 6pm. Happy Halloween to those who celebrate it (I don't). This evening, I will be monitoring all three Districts that cover our community on a special schedule due to it being Halloween. I will start off with 17, as I'm expecting the least problems from this District (for now at least), then I will cover 14 and then 25. My schedule has changed a bit from what I originally set it for, due to class ending early for me this afternoon :). I'm monitoring 17 from now until 6:10pm, then 14 from 6:10 to 6:20, then 25 from 6:20 on. However, there probably will be on-and-off monitoring of 25 this evening, due to the fact I may monitor other Districts for my other blog, depending on how hectic things get. I'm hoping all of us will have a safe and enjoyable Halloween this evening. Here's crime.

6:10pm - Didn't hear anything in 17, so here I am with 14.

6:11pm - Battery in progress. Francis and Stave. Group of teens fighting. Crowd's moving down Francis Pl. Couple of calls coming in.

Detail @ ASPIRA High School On Barry, Foot Patrol On Fullerton

Good afternoon, everyone, it's 12:54pm. It's a cloudy afternoon with temps in the mid 40s, and it will stay that way, mainly in thanks to Superstorm Sandy. Yep, even us here in Chicago are feeling some of the effects from the storm, although nothing as bad as the east coast is experiencing. My thoughts and prayers are with all affected by this horrible, horrible storm, and I'm sure all of yours are, too. It's really unfortunate. I'm monitoring 25 from now until my dinner this evening, then I'll be gone for the night. I'll return tomorrow night, and with special coverage for Halloween. We'll see how this year's Halloween goes, as last year wasn't too good, especially here in 25. I've already got my monitoring schedule set up, and this is how it will be: 17 from   6:50pm to 7:00pm, 14 from 7:00pm to 7:10pm and 25 from 7:10pm on. However, the schedule is NOT 100% guaranteed, due to unforeseen circumstances and situations that may arise in other Districts, including 17 and/or 14. For example, if 14 ends up with a shooting during the time of my initial listening, I will monitor that Zone for up to two hours after. I also want to note that my main focus is on, as usual, 25 because things tend to be the most violent on this end of the neighborhood. But we will have to see how things go. With that, here's crime for this afternoon and early evening.

1:07pm - Beats 2570 and 2578Sam are doing some sort of detail at the ASPIRA school, 3986 W Barry.

1:32pm - Beat 2582 is doing foot patrol this afternoon on Fullerton from Kilbourn to Pulaski.

5:11pm - Beat car 2525 has a traffic stop at Belden and Keystone.

5:25pm - Some call on Lawndale somewhere.

7:22pm - I have to go eat, and with that, I'm gone for the night. I'll see you all tomorrow evening. Have a good night, everyone.

Update From Timmy Re: Lack Of Posts This Month

Good afternoon, everyone. Timmy here. I would just like to give an update on a little bit of how I'm doing and the reason why I haven't posted most of this month. I am still alive (LOL) and I am doing well. Now to cut to the chase about why I haven't really been posting. You see, I ran into a few minor problems in my academic life over at Wright College, where I am going to school, this month. Thinking my midterms that we're supposed to take were going to be last week, I was putting all of my energy into studying for those the week before. But then I find out my midterms are this week, tomorrow to be exact, so last week I put my energy into studying and am doing so today. On top of it, I ran into a struggle with my Math class and I had to end up dropping that class. I am the most horrible person at Math and I don't understand it to save my life, and being "academically honest", as Wright wants us to be, I decided to drop that class, as I was failing it anyway, and I did not want to get kicked out at midterms. I was failing this class despite all the times I asked for help and went to tutoring, so it's not I didn't try. With that said, I am a part-time student right now with every intention on going full-time again next semester, which starts in January. Lastly, there have been a couple of days here and there where I listened to the radio for a short period of time, and didn't hear anything pertaining to our area, so I decided just not to blog on those days.

So there is the reason(s) why I have not been posting. I am still in the neighborhood and I still want to work with the community to make it better, but I have to put my academic life first in order to get where I want to be, and that is exactly what I have been doing the last three weeks. With that said, I will start blogging regularly again after tomorrow, once I get these midterms out of my way, coming on-board with 14 on Thursday. I plan on blogging everyday for the remainder of this month after tomorrow, and I do plan on blogging most of November, although I will not be monitoring the last week of November because of finals.

I have missed all of you and hope everyone is doing well. I sincerely apologize for any interruptions of service and for any inconveniences this has had on any of you.

Truly yours,
Timmy G.
