The Bridgeport Citizens Group encourages members to attend their beat's CAPS meetings each month. This helps the police know where problems are occurring, and for citizens to get updates on ongoing issues or recent incidents in their area.
To find out what beat you live in, and when your beat's CAPS meetings occur, visit the Chicago Police Department's 9th District page: https://portal.chicagopolice.org/portal/page/portal/ClearPath/Communities/Districts/District9
The BCG also hosts SmokeOuts - community BBQs in areas that have ongoing problems with bad buildings or incidents. Our goal is to provide a fun event where neighbors can come meet each other so they can work together to more effectively address ongoing problems in their area.
Finally, there are many great organizations in Bridgeport that hold events open to the community. We encourage everyone to support those events, as well.
