The Chicago Alternative Policing Strategy (C.A.P.S.) is a way to bring the local community and police together to reduce crime in our neighborhoods. Through collaboration, the Chicago Police and our neighbors work on developing proactive steps to reduce the potential for crime, rather than simply reacting to crimes after they have occurred. 

Recognized as one of the most ambitious policing initiatives in the United States, C.A.P.S. budget is participation based, and therefore any concerned residents and businesses are encouraged to attend their local Beat Community Meetings. 


Businesses in Greektown, especially those with liquor licenses should also attend the Hospitality Meetings. There, local businesses are advised of the latest security measures from CPD, the United States Secret Service (counterfeit education), and other matters specific to local businesses.

Greektown resides within the borders of Beat #1232.  Meetings for Beat #1232 take place at the 12th District Headquarters (1412 S. Blue Island Ave.) at 7:00 p.m., every other month.  For exact dates, you can reference the map below, or a pdf of the schedule is available by clicking here.
