Notes from today’s-Cooper, Kops, and Nash Park neighborhood meeting

Thank you to the residents of Cooper, Kops, and Nash Park neighborhoods, as well as Police District 7 - Sergeant Ross, Fire Engine 22- Battalion Chief, Safe and Sound representatives Tenia and DJ, who were in attendance at today’s emergency meeting to discuss the increase in crime over this last year.

To recap, residents in the area have gone to great lengths to keep their neighborhood safe. You have taken many necessary steps such as installing cameras on your home, motion lights, reporting suspicious incidents and criminal activity to District 7 non-emergency number, and sharing with neighbors on the neighborhood social media pages. These are all positive actions to deterring crime in our neighborhood.

As we were reminded, incidents called into the police district are categorized as priority 1 through 5. Calls to 911 is priority 1. Priority 1 calls include all life threatening incidents, such as shots fired, bodily harm, reckless driving, etc.

Calls to the non-emergency number are priority 2-5. Priority 2-5 calls include all incidents that shows evidence of situations that have already occurred, such as a home invasion when no one is home, garage break-in, and within reason, someone who may appear suspicious. Some clues may be an unknown person peeking in your neighbors garage, noticing an unknown person checking car doors, a stolen car, etc.

Unfortunately, there is still more we need to do collectively to ensure these incidents are reduced, and eventually, eliminated. It is important that we understand how we have reached this increase in criminal activity despite our viligence. Although many of us would prefer to see more police patrols I am afraid that, even with more patrols, the uptick in criminal activity will continue. Therefore, we should truly consider and put forth efforts in creating and establishing a block watch on each block, not to mention a neighborhood beautification program. Both a block watch and neighborhood beautification program have been proven to not only reduce crime in neighborhoods, but eliminate priority 1 incidents. As you review the lists of takeaways and action steps, I urge you to strongly consider the possibilities of working collaboratively with my office, District 7, and Safe and Sound as we bond together to take back our neighborhoods.

Some takeaways from todays meeting that demands all of our attention, is as follows:
* A Priority 2-5 call is considered a non-emergency. You should expect response times to these types of calls can take hours or days before a police car is dispatched to address that incident.
* All residents who have witnessed criminal activity or suspicious behavior must individually call in the incident to the non-emergency number. A priority 2 call may be moved to a Priority 1 if there are a substantial amount of industrial calls made to the police district. This could be a specific incident or multiple unrelated incidents.
* In addition to calling in inoperable street lights on your block, studies have shown that when neighbors install motions lights on their home or by turning on outdoor lights at entry doors lights in the evening will deter criminal activity. By establishing a block watch there are programs and grant funds that may be utilized for the installation and upkeep of lighting on the homes of each resident on your block.
* Neighbors with cameras installed at their home should share camera footage of recorded criminal activity with the police district.

Action steps:

* Follow up neighborhood meeting with Cooper, Kops, and Nash Park residents on Sunday, June 6th, an hour before the Beer Garden opens (Friends of Cooper Park what time does the Beer Garden Open?)
* District meeting(s) with Mayor, District Attorney, Judges, Fire and Police Commission members or Executive Director, Neighborhood Schools, District 7 and Community Prosecutor Unit, Office of Violence Prevention, and area businesses.
* Continue discussions about establishing a neighborhood block watch, block by block. Neighborhood Block Watch members create call log to alert neighbors on their block through text messaging about priority 1 issues.
* Request a notification from District 7 on priority 1 incidents when a suspect have been apprehended, and any further information helpful to residents impacted by the criminal activity.
