Good afternoon, everyone, it's 4:30pm. I'm monitoring 14 from now until 5:49. I truly hope everyone is keeping warm in this dangerous cold (for those of you who don't live in Chicago, it's -11 degrees right now). Don't go out unless you absolutely have to. CPS schools will be closed tomorrow as will many private schools. There will be many places available for shelter, and to find the nearest one, please call 311. Let's do all we can as responsible and good citizens to check up on people who are less fortunate or don't have anywhere to go. With that, here's crime for a portion of this early evening.
4:33pm - Check the well being. Diversey and the Kennedy Expressway. Several homeless people under the viaduct with blankets.

5:01pm - Every two hours, all officers in the City must go through viaducts and underpasses to look for any homeless people. If any are located, officers MUST relocate them to the nearest shelter.
