Happy New Year! (2014)

Good morning, everyone, and Happy New Year to all of you!!!! It's 12:00am on the first day of 2014. Well, another year is upon us. I'm really looking for this year, and I hope all of you will truly have peace, joy, prosperity and fun this year. Today, I'm going to be monitoring all three Districts on a special schedule. I will be starting my monitoring of 25 from now until 1. As for 14, I will be finished monitoring by 1, and for 17, I will be done by 12:15. Additionally, I know that it doesn't make sense that the calls won't be up here for a while, but this is the only way I can do it. I'm also doing my other blog, Chicago Crime Blotter, and am monitoring all of the other Zones in the City. If anyone has any concerns or questions, please do not hesistate to contact me.

Thank you for the crime highlights of 2013. It was quite sad seeing our neighborhood go downhill though.

Actually if you look at statistics over the last 25 years you'll see that crime in this area has reduced. Let's keep improving and not focus on the negative too much.
