Who Conducts Beat Meetings?

Beat community meetings are hosted by the Chicago Police Department and are usually conducted in one of three ways:

1. By a team consisting of a resident beat facilitator (a designated community leader) and a beat officer.

2. By one or more beat facilitators.

3. By one or more beat officers.  

Option 1 is usually considered ideal.  

Beat meetings and problem solving are most effective when they include a broad range of community stakeholders: residents, business owners, and representatives from local schools, churches and neighborhood organizations. In addition, beat officers representing all three watches, plus a sergeant, are expected to attend beat community meetings. Neighborhood Relations personnel, tactical and gang tactical officers, detectives, and other Police Department members may attend beat community meetings, as appropriate.
