Helicopters

I'm at Warren and California. There are 2 helicopters hovering. Anybody know anything??

  • News choppers are there for visuals, fires make for good videos. No need for a chopper for neighborhood violence, the action is over by the time they get there.

    Interesting...it would,seem to me that live videos of gang and drug activities would gross out the public enough to clamor for change.

    We have been watching prohivition. Ovies for 95 years!

    Thanks for explaining.,,that never occured to me.

Waste of tax payer money.....

Walking about with the dog for what seems to be less than an hour and I've witnessed four drug deals take place right under a police camera! Our countless calls to the police go unanswered! What's the point of getting these installed?

    17 years i have been begging for some police attention when i go and discuss the situation the police say oh yeah they have been dealing heroine on that corner for years.WHAT!? I have a friend who is an urban farmer he was driving through the west side hit a gigantic pot hole on Chicago ave. While waiting for the tow truck a young lady tried to associate with him he decided to go into the laundry mat across the street from the car and was not in the store for 5 min when he realized the security guard at the business was dealing drugs. Police work these neighborhood s for years while corruption runs rampant this guy cutting through the west side in 10 min could have busted criminal activity left and right, but he is not a paid civil servant . And i guarantee he will never open a business in an environment where he would not have a sense of security for his business or workers. Oh well its just positive economic activity that will go to safer areas, and its the violence that wins in a community with a serious lack good paying jobs

    If there is dealing in a business email the Business License person maria.guerra@cityofchicago.org, Top Law stephem.patton@cityofchicago.org, Top Building person judith.frydland@cityofchicago.org. Ask they enforce the gang and drug house ordinance and semd in the strategic task force.

    EVERYBODYlifing here knows policing is not effective.We have foot patrol that walks by open abandoned buildings with dealing and do nothing.

Security Cameras - cleared my alley.

I am still offering to install cameras for residents of east(and west) Garfield park. Email me! Also, if you have any other security / safety concerns I'm available to offer advice and assistance I.e. Door locks, window locks, "decoy cameras", motion lights, alarm company stickers and signs.. There are tons of ways to improve security and safety.. We planted bushes to cut off a pass through from the alley... Thorny painful bushes. Whatever works!

Security Cameras

IP cameras (cameras that connect directly to wifi, no wiring or recording equipment needed) are very affordable now and very, very effective. There is a D-Link brand model for $39.00. CPD has a program that taps into the signal (with permission) and its like adding a "blue light" camera without the obnoxious blue strobe light. I will install any camera residents on Maypole, Washington, Warren and Madison purchase.. And facilitate the CPD partnership.

    I will venture into the Wild West Garfield park, of course! Anyone who wants to do this or something similar I will be available to consult, help you buy the camera(s), and install them.
