The Skokie Police Department’s new quarterly Beat meeting in each of the Village’s nine geographic beats (see map) will continue in 2022. Both permanent beat officers for each area, as well as Crime Prevention officers, attend the meetings to provide a regular opportunity for residents and stakeholders of the Beats to interact with members of the Skokie Police Department who patrol their neighborhoods, exchange information, identify recurring problems and jointly develop solutions to those problems.

The meetings last about one hour and include introductions, discussion of current crime conditions and any new or trending issues and updates on issues discussed at prior meetings. The Skokie Police Department invites residents as well as business owners and representatives of schools, houses of worship and neighborhood organizations to attend their beat meetings.
