  1. This used to be such an awesome area of the city. These kids coming to these neighborhood have destroyed our peaceful life. Alderman Burke please know that we want to keep this neighborhood safe from gangs, drugs and prostitution so that the kids in the community can stay safe. Perhaps having a "How to be a good citizen should be mandated in ever school I am sure senior volunteers and service veterans will volunteer.

  2. glad the neighborhood people saw and reported all they knew...WAY TO GO CPD & Garfield Ridge people..THANK YOU

  3. Great job CPD. Another example that illustrates if you see anything that doesn't feel or look right, call 911 immediately and let the police determine what it is. They are happy to do it, you are not "bothering" anyone. Call 911.
