I spoke today at this Press Conference so that I can give a voice for the Washington Park Business Community and residents. Our businesses were destroyed, but thank God some were able to reopen. The residents are committed to making a safer community and many have joined the Washington Park Neighborhood Watch Group. We want our businesses to be successful and the Washington Park Chamber of Commerce is committed to making a economically strong community by working together with our businesses, residents and community partners.

Superintendent David Brown and Chief of Detectives Brendan Deenihan will provide an update on progress CPD's Looting Task Force has made since it launched last month.#CPDMediaCar
