Let's Get our Video Cameras Connected to CPD District/Cental Command

Being the IT Dept and administrator to the cameras that protect our Condo association since 2009, I have seen firsthand the power this tool has to solve crime. We've been subpoenaed twice and have produced useful video evidence for another dozen or so incidents over the last 5 years that all have helped make this community stronger. High ranking CPD Chief McNaughton has already successfully launched a pilot program in his previous position in Lawndale and we're very close to the reality where hiding from the law is no longer an option.

    Video cameras CAN be a valuable addition to one's security plan.

    But there is absolutely no point to connecting 10,000 20,000, 30,000 private security cameras to CPD. For CPD to respond based on one of the video feeds, personnel would have to SEE the ONE feed and recognize what was...

    Video cameras CAN be a valuable addition to one's security plan.

    But there is absolutely no point to connecting 10,000 20,000, 30,000 private security cameras to CPD. For CPD to respond based on one of the video feeds, personnel would have to SEE the ONE feed and recognize what was occurring. How can anyone monitor the thousands of streaming images in real time? It is just not possible.

    I know we are hoping for a rapid - near instantaneous - police response as a crime is occurring, but we have to be realistic.

    BUT what is possible is for private individuals and businesses to install good quality cams and a recording system that does not overwrite itself in less that 2-4 weeks. Once the person becomes aware that a crime has occurred, notify CPD that your video recording might be of assistance in the investigation.

    And then, make the recordings immediately available to detectives.

    BTW, to be of maximum value, the cams should NOT be mounted so high that the only image they record is the top of a suspect's head/hoodie. They need to record facial images, so experiment with cam placement. And cams need light, perhaps infrared.

    Talk to security cam experts. I have a colleague who specializes in security cam systems. (The newest ones let you see what's happening IRT on your smart phone.) Email me if you want his contact information. There is nothing in it for me other than to get you helpful information.

    PR is 100% correct about admissibility. Tampering allegations are just desperate squeaks from defense attorneys. Forensic examination can prove that no tampering occurred.

  • I am not giving CPD access to my security cams. If they ask some footage pertaining to a specific incident maybe. Unfettered access to my security cams will never happen. Don't give away your liberties so easily.

Looking for daycare in Logan Square

Hello,
Can anybody recommend a daycare in Logan Square? Also, not sure how far ahead I need to be checking places out. Friends have said there can be long wait lists, etc. but I'm not sure if that is everywhere in the city.... Thanks for any info!

Shooting at Pulaski and Addison?

Just went out to the 7-11, and there is police tape up, a cruiser there, and obvious little markers for ballistics, with an officer snapping pics. The guy at the 7-11 said that either two cars were shooting at each other, or that a fight over at Brudders went out onto the street and one person shot another. Anyone have any details?

  • Frank Skony Long time Resident

    Clarification - the tape and cruiser are outside of the Manee Thai restaurant on Pulaski.

  • from the Tribune this morning: A 22-year-old man was wounded in a shooting around 10:20 p.m. in the Old Irving Park neighborhood, said Chicago Police News Affairs Officer Hector Alfaro.

    The man was seating in the front passenger seat in a jeep in the 4000 block of West Addison Street when a male walked up and fired gunshots.

    The man was shot in the right thigh and was driven to the 17th District police station before being transported to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center where his condition stabilized.

CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -
Police are investigating after they say a woman was attacked and robbed in the city's Logan Square neighborhood.

Police say the brutal attack happened early Wednesday morning in the 2700 block of North Whipple Street.

The woman was walking down the street just after 8 a.m. when she was reportedly grabbed from behind and dragged into a gangway, according to a release from the Chicago Police Department. The man reportedly beat the woman over the head with a gun and demanded money.

According to the release, when the victim told the assailant she did not have any money, he tried to sexually assault her.

The victim described the suspect as a Hispanic man in his mid to late 20's, standing about 5'5 to 5'7 and weighing 175 to 200 pounds. The man was described as having black hair and stubble on face. He was last seen wearing a black and white knit stocking cap, a blue button-front hooded jacket with grey sleeves, and blue jeans.

Anyone with information on the attack is asked to contact Are North Police officers at (312) 744-8200.

Another Package Theft

At 2pm today a package was stolen from my front porch near Armitage and Sawyer.
I was able to get a look at the theives from behind as they walked out of the alley and onto Armitage Ave near Kedzie, and two women witnessed the theft.

They are wearing all black, head to toe. One man was black and the second hispanic, both about 5'6- 5'8.

UPS claims they left the package with someone, but they clearly did not.
BE CAREFUL and have packages sent somewhere else, especially for the holiday season.

The barking signals to me that the dog may be neglected (lack of attention (playtime, love, etc) from owner). Or could simply be lack of training and socialization, but this just goes back to neglect.

Morning, noon and night this dog barks and I think its been going on for over a year now. Honestly don't think or cant even fathom that I am the only one tired of this.

I have been doing research online and I thought there was a Barking Dog Noise Ordinance, or some sort of Dog Barking nuisance law for Cook County/Chicago but I can not locate it?
I don't want to call animal control, but fear that Its my only option - plus after my research, is recommended.
Calling 311 or 911 isn't going to solve the problem. Asking the owner nicely to control the dogs barking will be taken care of first, I just want to make sure if things keep going south, I have the correct recourse.

  • Good luck. I used to have Scotties and it isn't typical for them to bark all the time. They are alert dogs that like to keep watch, and mine would bark when they saw people, but certainly not constantly.

    There may be an underlying behavior or health issue here. Dogs with separation anxiety will bark constantly when left alone. Sometimes the owner's are not even aware of this issue until told by a neighbor.

    Another issue is senior dogs with dementia type issues can bark far too often. I have a 16 year old dog and in the last six months or so she has really increased her barking. She's having some doggie dementia type issues.

    Just wanted to mention a couple of these possibilities as may help the conversation w/ your neighbor.

Yet another package stolen

Hi all,

Just wanted to give a heads up, had a package stolen from my porch on the 3200 block of W. McLean Ave. FedEx tracking number states "left on porch" at 11:26 am. I got the mail at noon, nothing there.

We generally request packages to have signature on delivery, however this was a gift sent from my in-laws (actually the last package they shipped went missing as well). I work from home, doorbell never rang.

I filed a police report, had FedEx run a "trace", etc.

If you happen to see this fancy ottoman hanging out in a nearby alley give me a shout I guess!

  • FedEx will hold your packages at any of their locations without a fee. I usually have mine held at the Kinko's in Division and it's very easy to pick up as they are open late and on weekends. UPS is not nearly as flexible unfortunately

    Our yard is completely full of prairie plants, whose roots go down 6-8 feet. Our downspouts are all disconnected. Doesn't cause us any problems at all...you just have to plan for it and we save a bunch of money watering our gardens because of the rain barrels.

They are in the middle of a Kickstarter campaign to open their first interactive exhibit as early as Spring 2015: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/foodseum/chicagos-food-museum

The location has not been decided, but I immediately thought Logan Square would be the perfect location, with all the new restaurant activity, fantastic farmer's market, and plans for a future rare-fruit orchard.

After pledging my support, I emailed my thoughts to their executive director, Kyle Joseph, who personally wrote me back to thank me. He said that they are "big fans" of LS and they have been keeping an eye out there, and agreed that LS would be a great fit. He encouraged me to pass along the word in the neighborhood and said he would be happy to speak to fellow residents and supporters.

If you like this idea, please pass it along, donate to the campaign, and email the museum founders and organizers that you would love for Foodseum to come to Logan Square!

  • LD

    Agreed, I have nothing against the idea of the museum (I'd def visit out of curiosity), I just wouldn't invest in it as I am doubtful of its sustenance. Ditto for the juice bar (if the profit margins actually float the juice bar for a while, it will close as soon as the craze dies down, vitamixes get cheaper, or another, less expensive juice bar opens), although I think there's a big difference b/t restaurant/retail and hospitality/entertainment and not sure the 2 are comparable.
