77th STREET AREA BASIC CAR COMMUNITY NEWSLETTER

Message from the Area Commanding Officer

Community Members:
It’s October and the excitement of fall is upon us!  By now, hopefully everyone is settling into the routine of back-to-school and anticipating upcoming fall festivities including football games, homecoming celebrations, and of course, Halloween.  To the delight of every little ghost, goblin and superhero, trick-or-treating is the highlight of October.  With that, it’s important to remember that Halloween presents some very real dangers for kids, and parents must remain vigilant while celebrating. Please consider the following Halloween safety tips:
  • Wear bright and reflective costumes.  Make sure kids’ shoes fit well and that their costumes are short enough to prevent tripping, entanglement or contact with flame.
  • A parent or responsible adult should always accompany young children on their neighborhood rounds.
  • Only go to homes with a porch light on and never enter a home or car for a treat.
  • Remain on well-lit streets and always use the sidewalk.
  • Cross the street as a group in established crosswalks.  Never cross between parked cars or out driveways.
Regarding crime statistics, there was a slight increase in violent crime citywide compared to the same time period last year.  Specifically, 77th Street had a 2.4% increase.  My goal of achieving a community where everyone is safe to live, work, and raise families peacefully continues to be my priority.  As a result, I assure you we are dedicating tremendous resources toward controlling violent crime.   We had a significant decrease in part I crime and property crime with -8.7% and -13.7% respectively which is absolutely a reflection of our strong community-police partnership.  Thank you and great work!

In community news, this month is civilian appreciation month so we will be honoring our civilian employees throughout the month with fun events, raffles, prizes and a luncheon.  Also in October we are continuing our hugely successful community clean-ups throughout the council districts with the help of Sunburst Youth Academy and our officers.  If you see these conscientious volunteers cleaning up your neighborhood, please thank them for their efforts!  Finally, I invite you to stop by 77th Station on Halloween from 6 pm to 9 pm where we will be handing out candy and enjoying a few hours mingling with the community.     

Happy Halloween!  I wish you and your families a safe and festive celebration.



CORY PALKA, Captain
Commanding Officer
77th Street Community Police Station
