Public safety

There are tons of posts on here from people asking what to do about: random people loitering regularly, crowds on neighborhood corners in the middle of the night yelling at people, women's screams in the night, potential brothels/drug houses, and the list goes on......the answer to all of these questions is to CALL THE POLICE....not to post it on social media and wait for a group consensus on what to do.

There are tons of posts on here from people asking what to do about: random people loitering regularly, crowds on neighborhood corners in the middle of the night yelling at people, women's screams in the night, potential brothels/drug houses, and the list goes on......the answer to all of these questions is to CALL THE POLICE....not to post it on social media and wait for a group consensus on what to do. It's a great idea to post after you call the cops, so people know to keep their eyes opened, but please, if anything looks wrong to you, do you part and call the police. Nobody here can help. I worry about all of the people who have been hurt and all of the property that's been damaged or stolen because people posted here instead of doing what's right. Let's all do what we can to keep our streets safe!!

  • I've been to a few caps meetings and the police say "if we don't know about it, we can't do anything about it".

Street lights out for 3 nights

The street lights on the 2000 and 2100 block of Haddon have been out since Monday.

Both my husband and I have made several reports through 311. So far all talk and no action

I was told it was a city issue. Just so I'm understand...Crime is up in the area and now we turned the lights out to make it easier for the criminals to hide

  • L

    Be sure to contact the alderman.

  • Yes, agreed -- call the alderman. This will get something done way faster than 311 calls.
