    Right on Keith! The sad thing is, it's ridiculously simple! Just text to 274-637 to CPD. The body of the text must inude the header:CPD. Then follow with a brief description of the problem and officers are actually dispatched in "real time"! I can confirm this as I have done it myself on numerous occassions. Kids in this city like to loiter around at night getting high and blasting music. Invariably it leads to some stupid argument of fight. Can you imagine how many texts could be send from a vigillent block or neighborhood? We have a no tolerance policy for clowns on our block. If you try to set some mess off over here, CPD is getting a bunch of calls! Be proactive and stand up for your neighborhoods!!
