AND STAY OUT: More Trespassing At Center On Halsted

It's always interesting when we hear about the Center On Halsted asking police to remove someone from their property.

Sunday, December 15, 7:15PM
Officers are dispatched to the Center on Halsted to handle a trespassing matter. The 911 caller says he will point the male offender out to police officers. The trespasser is gone when cops arrive.

Officers are dispatched to the Center on Halsted to handle a trespassing matter. The 911 caller says he will point the male offender out to police officers. The trespasser has stepped outside when cops arrive. Officers tour the area and find the offender at Waveland and Broadway. He is brought to the Center, positively identified, and arrested for trespassing at 8:30PM.

Of course, once these individuals are out of the Center's doors, they absolutely, positively do not cause trouble in the neighborhood.

  1. This is exactly the type information we need posted on the blog. We must be vigilant about trespassing at COH.

    1. its good to have a contemporaneous record of issues. the better the record the weaker their claims of no crime connection.

  3. The CPD doesn't have to look far...they are usually outside my fence half a block down...run them off the block today; they are back tomorrow. Shut the place down, virtually no crime in the hood and 300 less police visits....everybody wins..

    1. I couldn't agree more - the tax-paying, law-abiding residents of the area should not have to tolerate the undesirable element that this organization continues to lure into the hood.

  4. But ... but ... but .... according to that ninny from the CoH who spoke at the August CAPS meeting, none of the clients of the CoH are responsible in any way for any crime, real or imagined, that may or may not have happened in this neighborhood.

  5. The sooner the COH is shut down the better for all Lakeview. This neighborhood has too many social service agencies into too small an area. Goodbye COH & don't let the door hit you on the way out!!

    1. The structure itself could easily be converted into a great upscale neighborhood hotel with parking.

  6. "The sooner the COH is shut down the better for all Lakeview."

    There are too many people with powerful friends making too much money off of that place for it to be shut down. The only reason it exists is to be a cash-cow for a handful of people.

  7. why would Comcast contribute $45K to C.O.H.? Who benefits?

  8. It will not be closed. There are wealthy people who still give huge sums of money to this place thinking it is a gay community center. Most people have no idea what happens at this place. Also, the city of Chicago funnels money to it. As the other commenter stated, there are simply too many people who make to much money off of this place. Companies, churches, individuals...all are mailing checks to the Center, and they get to report that they made donations and write it off on your taxes. Everyone wins! (except anyone who lives within a mile of the COH, of course)

  9. Time to write Comcast and tell them them why they just blew $45K.
    Send the the CFO a link to this blog.

  10. does anyone know if COH staff actualy show up at the misdemeanor courtroom at Belmont and Western to pursue the criminal trespass charges after the arrest? If not, the arrest never holds the criminal accountable for the disturbance.
