The city announced today that the blue light cameras are now automatically activated when a 911 call comes in. That means the 911 operator can see real-time video of the area while still on the line.
We're cautiously optimistic that this might help when "shots fired" calls come in. Last summer in Uptown was the worst in memory for that kind of activity.
still wondering why they're not on all the time.ReplyDelete
i hope that this doesn't give the CPD an excuse to reduce the already spare police presence this summer.
Interesting. The blue light cameras are on, and available to the CPD, all of the time.ReplyDelete
On another note, there was a guy lying in the street, on Wilson and Broadway Wednesday night, with about 5 police cars. Not sure what was going on?ReplyDelete
always something going on in Uptown...now if we could get the WY construction crane to dim the huge flood lights at night.....ReplyDelete
oh...and also to have the WY bozos start work at a resonable hour..not 5AM....ReplyDelete
Do they really start at 5 a.m.?ReplyDelete
This is, then, in blatant violation of the ordinance that requires that they start no earlier than 8 a.m.
What can be done to stop this? Does calling 911 help at all?
This is the greatest thing since sliced bead. It's also great to see some of the Homeland Security $$$'s reaching the community level.ReplyDelete
Incidentally, D, they are on all the time.
yes they do start at 5 AM....I live right across the street...I have called and made complaints before and even called the Walsh company complaint department and was told I was a liar by the man I spoke with and he told me not to call him again with lies....ReplyDelete
so......there you go..
They are hurrying at record pace because of the lawsuit.ReplyDelete
Haven't you noticed all of the sudden all the work they are getting done.
Walsh needs the work too with the economy until Daley gets the Olympics here for them.
This sure would make a great story in the News Star, wouldn't it?ReplyDelete
Apparently the only way to get anything done the right way in this city is to get the media to cover it. Keep writing your emails folks, eventually someone will wanna cover this crap.ReplyDelete
Try the local TV stations as the newspapers are obviously not wanting to give an honest assessment of whats really going on in this ward.
I wonder how the police would respond if they were called? It is breaking the law.ReplyDelete
