Don’t forget to attend tonight’s COMMUNITY MEETING with 24th District Police Commander James Roussell. The meting takes place TONIGHT (Tuesday, December 20th), 7:00 p.m., at Gale Community Academy, 1631 W. Jonquil (between Ashland and Marshfield).
This meeting comes on the heels of a successful undercover police investigation of an illegal narcotics trade in Rogers Park, which resulted in the arrests of seventeen known gang members and their associates and the issuance of arrest warrants for four others. I sent an email last week with details of the undercover investigation.
Commander Roussell will provide up-to-date information on the status of the investigation and respond to your questions. The primary purpose of the meeting, however, is to enlist the support of community residents so that together we can take proactive steps to prevent the illegal drug trade from re-establishing itself on Howard Street and elsewhere in the neighborhood.
I look forward to seeing you tonight.
