Officers from the Evanston Police Department and the Chicago Police Department’s 24th District Rogers Park Station met for a joint roll call Friday evening in the parking lot of the Popeye’s Chicken at Howard Street and Damen Avenue.

Officers from the Evanston Police Department and the Chicago Police Department’s 24th District Rogers Park Station met for a joint roll call Friday evening in the parking lot of the Popeye’s Chicken at Howard Street and Damen Avenue.

With Evanston Police Chief Richard Eddington and Chicago Police 24th District Commander Michael Wick present, officers exchanged information to assist in deploying officers to deal with hot spot locations in the area.

Evanston Police Cmdr. Jay Parrott says exchange allows for officers to be well versed on issues that need police attention in both jurisdictions. Chicago and Evanston officers frequently assist each other when the need arises.

He says there’s been an excellent long term working relationship between the two departments in  adressing concerns on both sides of the Howard Street corridor that’s the boundary line between the cities.

Outdoor roll calls are conducted at various times and locations that require a higher police presence throughout the warmer months. This allows the public a chance to see how police are briefed on problem issues and given information to address community concerns specific to their neighborhoods.
