  2. Now I might be pointing out the obvious here, yet wouldn't it be swell if resources were redeployed back to the neighborhood from their current tours of duty on the south side and positioned at the following locations: Belmont/ Sheffield (red line); Belmont/ Clark; outside the cesspool on Halsted, er, Center on Halsted. That'd save the CPD a lot of gas for their cars.

    1. COH has a "Director of PR" position posted. In the job description duties it lists "dealing with crisis". It shows a posted date of 12/13/13. Is this a new position? If so, are they anticipating more problems?
