THANK U INSPECTOR GENERAL. Readers THINK on how bad practices are keeping your neighborhood dangerous and report abuses. The Inspectorgeneral homepage has a place to report and make positive suggestions.

Our Superintendent is doing more than any other in this effort. We need to support him in ways that are meaningful. He gets reports. Reports may not be true. It is up to us to tell him the truth. It is our new civic duty in a place like chicago.

    Today CPD got 10Mil for more sdsc rooms. THANKS to the billionaire who donated.
    The problem is, in the camera room people at 11 do not get police service even when they call 911. What is that about?

    News does not match reality on the street. Keeping people honest is difficult indeed!
