Wicker Park Bucktown Crime Blog Is Back!

Hello friends and neighbors!

With all of the unfortunate crime happening in the area lately, I've decided to return to blogging events from the police scanner in my free time. I will also be updating this page with local Community Alerts and CAPS dispatches when available. Here, you will find unbiased, unfiltered crime news and updates. Welcome and thanks for following!

Sorry It's Been So Long!

Hey guys and gals, it certainly has been a while. That is because the software I use to listen to the local scanner does not currently have the feed for the 13th and 14th District. I have to listen to either the city-wide channel or the Districts 12-15 channel and filter out what I think is local as I hear it, which turns out to be quite difficult. I do promise to make many more updates though, so stay tuned!
