77th STREET AREA BASIC CAR COMMUNITY NEWSLETTER
December 2014

Monthly message from the Area Commanding Officer


Community Members:

Happy holiday season!  It’s hard to believe it is already the end of 2014.  While I reminisce about all the successes of 2014 and look with anticipation to the promise of 2015, I feel immense pride for all we have accomplished in just the few short months I’ve been in 77th.  I know that the partnership between our 77th officers and the community is stronger than ever.  Our youth programs thrived this past year and our outreach efforts were well received in the community which led to an overall decrease in most crimes.  I take great pride in knowing that our strong relationships with community members have contributed to sustained improvement in the quality of life for all.  In addition, I am humbled by the generosity and charitable spirit of our dedicated community members who give of themselves and their resources to ensure a successful partnership.  Thank you!  

Regarding our crime statistics, our numbers look similar to last month.  Despite a 9% increase in violent crime, we had a solid 6.3% reduction in part I crime and a notable 12.8% drop in property crime compared to this same time period last year.  My focus on lowering crime does not diminish and I will continue to keep that as my top priority in 2015.  I feel passionate about improving public safety so that children and families in our community feel safe to enjoy their neighborhoods and schools.

Please join us on Tuesday, December 9th at 6:00pm for our 2nd annual Operation Shoes from Santa at 77th Station.  This exciting event is perhaps our biggest event of the year and is open to all.  Although shoes are pre-selected for specific children, all other children are welcome to come and enjoy a real snow play yard, hot cocoa, holiday treats, and Santa Claus!  This is a great opportunity for kids to take a picture with Santa and it is a free event.  All are encouraged to join us in the Christmas fun. 

Finally, please remember these important shopping safety tips while you’re doing your holiday shopping:

• Shop during daylight hours whenever possible
• Avoid wearing expensive jewelry
• Do not carry a purse or wallet if possible
• Stay alert to your surroundings
• Be aware of strangers approaching you for any reason
• Avoid carrying large amounts of cash
• Avoid overloading yourself with packages

From our home to yours, I wish you a safe and peaceful holiday season.


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