Eighth District Court Advocates Saluted for Standing Up for Justice and Against Crime

As you may have read in the story (with video) that we posted on June 22:

...our local court advocates are some of the very best people on the entire Southwest Side---standing up for justice and against crime.

Of all the court advocacy programs in all the police districts in the city, the Eighth District's is by far the largest and most successful---a model frequently held up for others to emulate.

About 20 of the volunteer advocates were saluted at a dinner at the Eighth District Station last week. The Southwest Chicago Post was there to capture some rough video, posted below.

Our congratulations to the advocates. Thank you and please keep up the good work!

Interested in joining their ranks or at least learning more information? Call the CPD Eighth District CAPS Office at (312) 747-8724, or contact coordinator Barbara Ziegler directly at (708) 269-8833 or via email at
