Klingbeil Honored by Court Advocates; Others Are Needed to Step Up, Fight Crime

The Chicago Police Eighth District Court Advocates bade a fond farewell recently to one of their own: Clearing resident
Gerald Klingbeil, who is leaving the group because he is moving out of state.

The Southwest Chicago Post adds our thanks to Mr. Klingbeil for helping make the Southwest Side a better and safer place; and best wishes for a future that is filled with good health and happiness!

And we remind everyone that volunteers are always needed to join the ranks of the court advocates--good men and women who show up in criminal court to support victims and witnesses, back up police and prosecutors, and demand justice from judges.

Sounds like a tall order; but in reality, it's quite easy. Try it for just one day and see for yourself. Just call (312) 747-8724, ask to speak with the CAPS office, and then tell them you want to be put in touch with the court advocates.

It's no accident that the Eighth District court advocacy program is widely recognized as the largest and most effective in the entire city. It has strong leadership and some dedicated men and women in its ranks. So make the call, won't you?
