This Keepin’ it Real forum is a partnership between the Chicago Police Department and the Safer Foundation that connects youth and their guardians with correctional facilities inmates for the purpose of providing the “real” story on inmate life and the pitfalls that parents and youth can avoid. Hear the “real story” from burglars who have been found guilty of burglary by a Judge and/or Jury.
Keepin’ it Real is an educational series whereby offenders dealing with a specific type of crime share their stories as part of their community service hours in hopes of helping the general community be better informed and prepared.
Please join your neighbors on Saturday, March 16th for this important event. I have heard from folks who have attended this forum in the past that they walk away amazed at what they have heard from these offenders.
The event will be from 10 am to 11 am at the 12th District Police Station Community Room, 1412 S. Blue Island. If you have not had a chance to see the new station this is an excellent opportunity. For more information, contact the 12th District Community Policing Officer at 312.746.8306
