Reducing Fear Within The Chicago Community

I have always found the field of criminal justice exciting, especially the topics of gangs and gang prevention. My personal philosophy is to bring the community together by strengthenuing their bond with the police. I have a strong ambition to keep Chicago a safe city by reducing crime and maintaining livable neighborhoods.

This is why I belive that I will fit into the structure of the CPD. The Chicago Police Department and civilian employees of the Police Department serve the citizens of Chicago through crime prevention, criminal investigations, apprehension, neighborhood policing, and involvement through the schools with young people and overall delivery of police services.
