In the Lincoln Park area, as in any urban neighborhood, the
safety and security of its residents is always a concern.
While our local police do an excellent job at protecting us
from unwanted intrusion by others, there are many things that
we as citizens can do to secure our own homes and persons.
With this in mind, the Lincoln Central Association, a local
neighborhood organization, has asked Dr. Ron Rufo of the Chicago
Police Department to present a program on practical steps
that we as citizens can take to make our homes and ourselves
more secure. He will speak on Thursday, November 12, at the
St. Vincent DePaul Center, 2145 N. Halsted, Chicago, 7:00
Dr. Rufo is a crime prevention specialist. He is a sought-after
speaker who specializes in working with individuals, neighborhood
organizations, and local businesses to help prevent assaults,
thefts, and burglaries. His presentation will cover the practical
aspects of crime prevention, and actions that each of us can
take to make our homes and ourselves more secure. With the
recent incidents of assaults and burglaries in our neighborhood,
his presentation promises to be very timely.
