15th PDAC announces new community relations officer

There is a new com­munity re­la­tions of­ficer at the 15th Po­lice Dis­trict, mem­bers of the dis­trict’s ad­vis­ory coun­cil learned at their Sept. 30 ses­sion. Of­ficer Keisha Jac­obs, with the de­part­ment since 1998, is re­pla­cing Of­ficer Shar­on Krause, who has been the 15th’s CRO for sev­er­al years and is now the dis­trict’s Compstat of­ficer.

Krause got a round of ap­plause from mem­bers. 

“I tried to do my best,” she said.

Also at the Sept. 30 meet­ing, Mi­chael Berkery and Ry­an Pow­ell were honored as of­ficers of the month for Au­gust.

The two of­ficers made 12 ar­rests in Au­gust. Five of those were for vi­ol­a­tions of the Uni­form Fire­arms Act and were made in high-crime areas of the dis­trict.

Mem­bers said they will be host­ing a Christ­mas din­ner for po­lice on Sat­urday, Dec. 7, and they’re also fi­nal­iz­ing plans for the an­nu­al hol­i­day party for kids. No date, time or place have been set yet for the kids’ party.

The 15th PDAC’s next meet­ing will be at 7 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 28, at the May­fair Com­munity Cen­ter on St. Vin­cent Street. ••
