-During the National Night Out while on patrol an officer observed several individuals exiting Wagoner School. When the officer tried to stop the subjects they ran in different directions. The Officer began a pursuit of one subject and called for backup. The officers at the National Night out responded to assist in the pursuit.

-Meetings: On Friday, August 5th, I participated in a meeting coordinated by 30th District, State Representative, William Q. Davis. The goal of this meeting was to begin an ongoing dialogue that develops a regional relationship between the Chicago Police and police departments in the south suburbs. Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson was one of the keynote speakers and agreed to assign a Deputy Chief as a Liaison to the South Suburban Chiefs of Police Association. This was the beginning of several meetings to come in developing a closer relationship to better protect and serve the communities.
On Monday, August 8th I participated in the Urban Progress Law Enforcement Summit sponsored by Congresswoman Robin Kelly. The participants in the summit included local, state and federal partners to discuss intergovernmental cooperation. The meeting was held to discuss issue the Congresswoman could take back to Washington D.C. since she was appointed to a Congressional Working group tasked with examining police accountability, aggression toward law enforcement and public safety concerns related to these issues.
