Message From Beat 2422

Blue lights flashing and sirens beeping, the eye-opening cruise toured south Evanston and Chicago.

The rain and the wind were no deterrents to Beat 2424’s Hands Across Howard event last night, but it did evolve into a cruise instead of a walk. After the rainy roll call in Popeye’s parking lot, Commander Sobczyk told neighbors who braved the elements to squeeze into squad cars. Three of us joined two female officers in their vehicle and followed the procession of more than 20 squad cars. After the impressive ride, the group was treated to Popeye’s chicken boxes courtesy of Evanston and Chicago Police Departments. The rain didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits instead it just made us all the more determined to join our new commander and support him and his officers.

Heads up neighbors of Beat 2422:

There will be a Walk and Talk event on Thursday, April 9. Join Commander Sobczyk and neighbors for a walking tour of North of Howard. Meet up will be at 6:00 PM in front of Sandy’s Foods at the corner of Howard and Bosworth.

We’ll walk and talk up to Juneway and end up at 7450 N Rogers for our regular monthly CAPS Beat 2422 meeting at 7:00 PM. I hear there’s the possibility of a special guest appearance from someone downtown! Stay tuned!

If we have a 'special visitor' from downtown, do you think the alderman and his staff will be at the CAPS meeting again? Will that be 2 meetings in a row for them? That will be a record!
