ODDS & ENDS: Police Transfers, Saturday Morning Blotter

Police Transfers
Two comment authors have reported that the Chicago Police Department has announced three vacancies available for officers who wish to transfer into our district. 

The district lost 8 officers during the most recent round of transfers and promotions as more of its officers left the district than transferred in.

Other than the three vacancies here, there are "not many openings in nice districts. Odds are no one will bid out," one comment notes.

In December's transfers, only two of our officers chose to go work in "not nice" districts.

CWB will update you when the new transfer activity is finalized.

Saturday Morning Blotter
The thaw is slowly settling in and it seems to have loosened up Boystown first.

1:23AM: Police respond to Scarlet bar, 3322 N. Halsted, after a patron claims that he was pushed to the floor by a man who was still inside the bar. No report.

2:08AM: Two women are fighting on the corner of Roscoe and Halsted.

2:12AM: A man who befriended someone on Clark Street near Roscoe flags down police after his new friend takes off with his "wallet and stuff." After the victim stops crying, he decides that he does not want to file a report. 

2:40AM: A battery just occurred inside Circuit nightclub, 3641 N. Halsted. No report. 

2:47AM: A woman arrives home in the 900 block of Dakin and discovers that her front door has been kicked in.

And Finally..
Police responded to the 2800 block of N. Orchard at 1:41 Friday morning after a resident reported that "an intoxicated man just walked into his apartment, sat on the couch, and he refuses to leave." Officers gave the "intoxicated man" a ride to the 900 block of Wellington.

  2. "Not so nice" districts = south or west sides.
