Voice your concerns on crime to Tom Tunney’s Office

We have had many posts this week on crime and it appears our voices are being heard.  This is from one of our fellow neighbors:

“Chris “director of public safety” for Tunney’s office called me back within three hours and was very understanding, supportive and sympathetic to the issues we are seeing. He has been receiving a ton of calls and seems to understand we need help. He wants to know when police are not responding and when we feel no one is listening. He said he is open to anyone who wants to call. I spoke with him for 20 minutes. He said he took a drive down the alleys along Janssen this morning and was surprised at the amount of graffiti in the area. He says he has ordered clean up for it and would like calls anytime we see new graffiti or anything suspicious in the area. He will be present at the CAPS meeting on the 18th at 7PM at 2452 Belmont. This is our chance to meet with and talk to our law enforcement and tell them what we are seeing. He also says he\’s happy to join any neighborhood watch programs we set up to help be a resource. Call him and tell him your concerns. The more they hear from us the better.”

If you see something that does not seem normal, call 911 to report it.  You can also contact Tom Tunney’s office at 773.525.6034 and continue to voice your concern on crime.  We also advise you to follow Crime in Wrigleyville and Boystown.
