Attention Beat 331 Residents-- Weigh in on this month's focus problem

As you may know, we will not be having a CAPS meeting in January or February. We will need to vote on a new focus problem for this month, and we will do this again next month, so that our officers can remain responsive to our community's needs. We will resume voting on the focus problem at CAPS meetings during the March 2009 meeting.

Officer Parlor was kind enough to provide updated maps showing the location of burglaries, roberries, and batteries in our area. We would propose asking the police to focus on 67th Street and 68th Street between South Shore and Jeffrey to address the multiple burglaries that have occurred in those areas.

Please comment regarding whether you agree with the proposed focus problem, or whether you would propose another focus problem. We will take all comments/votes into consideration and advise Officer Parlor of the new focus problem on January 23.
