Southwest Precinct Residents:

As I prepare to move once again from the Southwest Precinct I would like to take a minute to thank all of you for allowing me to come back “home” again last year.  After spending two and a half years as your Precinct Commander prior to my departure in 2010, it was my great pleasure to have the opportunity to come back to the Southwest Precinct and again serve this community. 

The men and women of your Precinct bring a high level of professionalism and pride to their work.

It is only through your support and working together that creates the great environment that allows our officers to provide the quality of service you have come to expect.  I have appreciated the hard work of you and our community leaders who have developed strong working relationships with our officers to make this community safe.

Again, it has been a pleasure to serve your community and thank you for your support and I look forward to working with you in the future.

Holiday Message from the Southwest Precinct Captain

The officers of the Southwest Precinct would like to wish our friends and neighbors a wonderful holiday season.  Your officers are working hard to make sure all of our neighborhoods are safe and that we are providing you with the best service possible.  Your continued support and efforts in taking care of your neighbors and community members are the most significant factor in helping us provide the service you have come to expect and deserve from the officers in the Southwest Precinct. 

We appreciate all of the support you give us on a daily basis, especially the members of the Southwest Precinct Advisory Council, Block Watch Captains and members, Community Councils and business community who work selflessly to support and assist our officers in doing their work.  It is only by working together that we are able to have such a great place to live and work in. 

Remember to stay safe and continue to report any suspicious activity you see in the neighborhood.  As you know, this is a time of the year where many of our neighbors are away from home and we need to look out for one another.  We have additional patrols deployed in various areas around the Precinct including our parks and business districts. 

Again, thank you for your support and have a happy and safe holiday season and Merry Christmas from your officers at the Southwest Precinct.

- Captain Joe Kessler
