Letter from the President

We reconvene this month following our annual holiday break.  We hope you all had pleasant holidays, with no Covid or other issues.     

Our last meeting focused on the November Veteran’s Day celebration, which included recognition of the 75th Anniversary of the Korean-American Alliance and exceptional service award presentations to members of Chicago Police, Fire, Emergency Responders.     

We also discussed the sculpture installation at Mayfair Park. The larger size sculpture has been installed to replace the small version previously installed by the sculptor unilaterally and without prior notice.

We held an informal holiday party at the Irish American Heritage Center Pub following the Thwack Dance performance of Oratorio at Mayfair Park fieldhouse on Friday, December 15.

Our next meeting will be held via Zoom at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, February 8. See contact information at the notice in this Newsletter.  We will seek input regarding community issues and needs for planning action during 2024. Hope to see you on Zoom. See the enclosed schedule of this year’s meeting dates.

CAPS Meeting for Beat 1722

CAPS meetings for Beat 1722 are held on the 3rd Wednesday of each month. The next meeting is on February 21 at 6:30pm in the Community Room of the 17th District Police Department at 4650 N Pulaski. A full schedule of meetings for the year can be found here.

The primary purpose of the beat community meeting is to allow beat residents, other community stakeholders and police to discuss chronic problems on the beat and to engage in problem solving using the CAPS five-step problem-solving process. Beat community meetings provide an opportunity for police and community residents to exchange information about conditions in the neighborhood, to identify crime and disorder problems, and to develop strategies to combat those problems. The meeting also provides an opportunity for police and community to get to know one another.

For upcoming meeting info, or if you have questions or comments, please contact the CAPS office at 312-742-4588, or email Learn about the Office of Community Policing at
