Beat 1911 is “one of our most successful beats,” according to Chicago Police Sgt. Clark, as total crime in the beat is down 15 percent over last year.

Twenty neighbors attended the beat’s monthly CAPS meeting on the top floor of Kindred Hospital, 2544 W. Montrose Ave. The brisk meeting lasted a little more than 30 minutes, but drew the attendance of six officers, including two officers from the beat and?19th District Commander John Kenny.

Neighbors’ chief concerns centered on gang tagging of buildings on the 47oo Maplewood block and a group of teens who have been hanging around the Sunken Gardens Park late at night and allegedly doing drugs on weekends.

Officers Kellee Simy and Monique Giannoni cautioned residents to be aware of increased property theft as the weather warms and people forget to lock their doors and windows.

The next Beat 1911 CAPS meeting is scheduled for July 27.
