Criminal activity

Residents are not being notified of neighborhood criminal activity in a timely manner.
If residents and guests are not notified by the city or association management companies, the criminals are free to attack again until they are caught.
There must be a better notification system sent immediately once an attack is reported by a victim.

  • Jambo neighbor

    South Loop Neighborhood Watch has an email sign up and also a Facebook page. They send out email notifications and you are also able to post suspicious activity.

  • Be52 content creator

    I will look into each of these suggestions and register for important notifications. A repeat criminal, robber and sexual assaulter was roaming the south loop and ready to attack again. Fast work by the CPD got him arrested. Instead of attacking innocent people he'll spend the rest of his days in jail.
    Thank you to all who commented.
