The 23rd District Court Advocates monthly meeting is tonight (August 25, last Tuesday of the month) from 6-6:30 pm. If you're interested in becoming, or learning more about being, a court advocate, please plan to attend. It's in the Community Policing office, on Halsted just north of Addison.
Court cases they're currently follow include: the sentencing of an Uptown child sex predator; the jury trial of the person who allegedly injured the police officer during the brawl on August 12; the alleged murder by skinheads of a fisherman at Montrose Harbor; and the the trial of a person accused of brutally killing the daughter of a long-time crossing guard in the 23rd District.
Court is during the day: morning and afternoon cases. If you have a non-traditional work schedule or can spare a day or two a month, you might want to look into becoming a court advocate. For more information, call 312-744-0064 (23rd District Community Policing).
