As part of the Emanuel Administration's push to make better use of the Internet, the CPD Eighth District CAPS Program will host its first-ever online CAPS meeting.
The district-wide event is set for 7:30 to 8:15 p.m. Thursday, May 23.
The featured topic of discussion is graffiti. Featured participant is Eighth District Commander David R. McNaughton.
According to Sergeant Allen Cain of the CPD Eighth District CAPS Program, the online event is not designed to replace traditional CAPS meetings, but is "...a way for people who can’t attend (a traditional meeting) to participate and voice their opinion.”
