Police Activity Summary:

130 police calls for service have been generated during the first half of 2012 in patrol beat 49. Historically, the average is 277 per year.

9 of the calls received from the beat in the first half of 2012 were for IUCR crimes. The rest of the police calls are considered quasi-criminal, traffic, and service-related.

Since January 2007, 1,660 calls for service have been responded to in the neighborhood; 100 of them IUCR crimes. The calls for service to IUCR crime ratio in the area is 6%.

In 2012, we expect 17 IUCR crimes to occur in the patrol beat based on the trend established during the previous 5 years.

The next regularly scheduled neighborhood watch meeting for the area is currently slated for a date in March of 2013; sooner should the need arise. An official notice will be circulated when the date is closer.
