2024 January CAPS Beat Meetings

         Be part of the solution!

We encourage all residents to participate in their CAPS Beat Meeting. This is an opportunity for you to engage with your Beat Officers.

What is CAPS?  CAPS stands for Chicago Alternative Policing Strategy. CAPS is a partnership between police and community that is the foundation of community policing. CAPS uses Beats to develop relationships between the community and the police.

CAPS meetings offer city residents an  opportunity to address crime and safety issues directly with the beat officers who patrol their neighborhood, as well as to provide ongoing  feedback, which help the police to monitor crime issues.  The beat meeting is a chance to meet your neighbors and come up with strategies that affect the community.

To find your District & Beat, click HERE.
