BEAT IT: CAPS Calendar Updated

The 19th district CAPS office posted and, then, re-updated their August calendar yesterday. Here are the August beat meeting dates, times, and locations according to the CAPS calendar as of the time of this posting.

Beats 1923 and 1925, shaded yellow on the map
Wednesday, August 7, 2013, 7PM
19th district police station
850 W. Addison Completed

Beats 1924 and 1933, shaded pink on the map
Thursday, August 8, 2013, 7PM
Illinois Masonic Medical Center
836 W. Wellington (Front desk will direct you to the room)

Everyone is welcome to attend either meeting. Or both meetings.

If you're on Beat 1934 or 1935, we don't know what to tell you. The CAPS calendar, Tom Tunney's July 16 Facebook post, and Tom Tunney's 44th Ward web page have conflicting information.

  1. Did the boundaries of the beats change last night? Why the different shading between the two maps you posted?

    Hi Anonymous,

    No, the boundaries did not change. The city's information changed.

    There is still no clear answer as to where beats 1934 and 1935 are officially meeting. Click the linked text in the last paragraph. Three sources, three answers.

  4. Hey, I haven't been to one of these before but I'd like to consider going - what's the setup? Is there a presentation or something from CPD, or is it just an open discussion?

    Hi Anonymous,

    We encourage you to go. We are CAPS meeting veterans, with one of the CWB partners having attended meeting ins this neighborhood as early as the mid-1990s.

    There is a basic structure and outline. Usually something like welcome, occasional guest presentations (short), crime statistics, progress on previous concerns, opportunity for persons in attendance to express new concerns, and a wrap-up.
