Each week, Patch features items from reports on file at the Oak Forest Police Department. Although not all accounts are reported in the Patch police blotter, the Oak Forest Crime Prevention Committee compiles the number of calls of service monthly, by type and location.
This week, Patch gives you the rundown of what was called in and where during the month of September. See how your ward measures up. Patch will feature one ward per day over the next week. See how Ward 4 compares to Ward 1, Ward 2, Ward 3 and others throughout the week. Unsure of which ward you live in?
