You may recall that Theo Epstein and his neighbors had hired a private security company north of Roscoe in the Southport Corridor. Now the area south of Roscoe in the Southport Corridor is funding private security as well.
Barr Neighbors (Belmont, Ashland, Roscoe, Racine) are currently collecting donations to help fund private security within this area. (North Belmont to East Ashland to South Roscoe (west of Southport) to Newport (east of Southport and both sides of the street to East Racine).
In addition to hiring private security, they are looking to increase communication between neighbors, so even if you are not able to donate, please become part of this neighbors group so you are in the know about crime in the area. If you are within these boundaries, please email email@example.com. In addition, if you would like information on how to set something like this up outside of these boundaries, please email that address as well for more information.
