I am writing to invite you to attend a community meeting with 24th District Commander James Roussell on Tuesday, January 24th, 7 p.m., at Gale Community Academy, 1631 W. Jonquil (between Ashland and Marshfield). This is a follow-up to a meeting I hosted with Commander Roussell last month to discuss the successful undercover police investigation of an illegal narcotics trade North of Howard and its aftermath.
Commander Roussell reported on the status of the investigation and the steps he and the Department were undertaking to prevent other illegal drug purveyors from filling the void. More importantly, he listened to the community residents in attendance and collected a lot of useful information and ideas. He promised to come back in a month to report on his progress and hopefully to enlist more community members into active involvement with CAPS and other neighborhood public safety initiatives.
Join me next Tuesday to get the latest public safety updates and ideas from our police commander.
