PEOPLE IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD: Arrested On A Robbery Warrant

19th district officers made contact with another interesting visitor to the neighborhood Tuesday evening.

At 8:40PM yesterday, officers encountered 22-year-old "CT" under the L tracks at 946 W. Belmont. A records check revealed that CT was wanted by the Cook County Sheriff's Office on a robbery warrant issued in July to the alias Kurtis Kelly.

Mr. CT/Kurtis Kelly was taken into custody while police sorted through the warrant issue.

Well done, officers.

  1. Robbery will start to drop CWB I believe. The Cubs are almost done for the season and the colleges are all back. A lot less people will be coming out to Clark and Belmont and Halsted. Not to say it will get a lot safer. The thieves will still be there but their pickings may be slimmer. I hope so. It will give everyone, especially our police, some breathing room.

    Maybe, and we'd like to see that happen, but history does not show a significant drop in robberies during the autumn months. The most important thing is for the public to keep pressure on public officials. They are counting on that to happen again this year as it has in the past.

  3. Good work - when you see someone suspicious, stop them and ask them for ID. That's your "reasonable suspicion".

  4. The only thing to do is remain vigilant and encourage better police funding.

  5. In my opinion the cold weather will help but I don't think the Cubs even play into the criminals coming to the neighborhood. The not so upstanding people have found a new easy picking playground that is under policed and will continue to be under policed. Rahm want to cut 10% more out of the next Police budget.

  6. CWB has it right. The holidays always show a spike in crime. We need to demand that the city hire more Police. And carry this:
    http:www.copquest.com/42-2450_first-defense-mk-6-canister-13-mc-085-oz.htm This is law enforcement grade OC (pepper spray). This vendor is known for very fast shipping, you may google this product and buy from the vendor of your choice. The mk6 is a personal size container, also see MK3 which Police have on the duty belt, and MK4 which is slightly larger. Do not leave spray in hot car, and keep spray warm in winter( inside coat pocket).Strength is 1.3mc (max).

  7. CPD budgets being cut again:

    They show their contempt for us in this quote: "McCarthy clarified that those efforts to save money will not come at the expense of police performance." "Clarified"? As if we're stupid enough to bite on this?

  8. Before Rahm under Delay they cut the police and instead spent money on blue light cameras and now I hear they are going to deploy gun shot sensors. All that technology is great but if no one is around to watch the cameras and respond in the neighborhoods it's just a waste of money. I would rather have old Police technology. Cops on the beat any day. Cameras don't stop crime and the criminals don't even care anymore because they know the cameras aren't being watched either.

    --- You got that right!!! My dad said in the 1950s and 1960s two cops were assigned to small neighborhoods all over metro NYC and the cops knew everyone personally, knew the buildings, businesses, visitors, everything, in explicit detail - and when something was out of order, the cops were on it, like white on rice. The system worked. Imagine if we had that here!! Probably would cost a hell of a lot less than what is spent now.

  10. Yeah but then there would be no kickbacks from the high tech companies that sell law enforcement this junk! Can't mess with the Chicago corruption.

  11. Another GREAT thing to use as personal protection and trust me it works GREAT!!! It's a can of wasp spray I know it's kind of big but works wonders, plus you can keep it in your car between the seats or on the side and like I said it works even better than mase and shoots pretty far too. So jut another option to use if need be. And don't forget to call the police whenever and I do mean whenever you think someone or something's suspicious it helps out the police more than you know. Gives us reasons to get out and stop these guys/girls/groups when there are calls on them trust me!
