On May 20, 2016, our chapter co-hosted and sponsored the second annual Father-Daughter Dance with the CAPS Offices of several Chicago Police Department districts at the South Shore Cultural Center. Building on the first-time event last year, this year almost twice as many young women participated in this soirée and, just as last year, NOBLE members, behind the scenes and on the frontline, made this evening a success. Thank you to all of our members who contributed their time, passion, and skills to make this a special night for these young women!

NOBLE will be hosting a “Hot Pursuit Car Show,” on Sunday, July 15, 2018, from 10am-4pm at The Universal Entertainment Center, located at 11901 S. Loomis, Chicago, IL. This event will feature exotic, vintage, classic, and custom vehicles from the Chicagoland area. In addition, local law-enforcement agencies will also be showcasing their specialty vehicles and equipment.
NOBLE will use the funds raised during this event to support a notable charitable organization. The 2018 recipient will be the “Peace Officer Memorial Foundation of Cook County Illinois (POMFCC)”. Your support will help build a Law-Enforcement Memorial in Cook County, Illinois that will honor the memory of all Cook County peace officers killed. To date, over 700 officers have been killed from over 180 law enforcement agencies that work every day in Cook County on the Federal, State, County, Municipal and local levels. Their goal is to establish the first-ever Cook County Peace Officers Memorial honoring their sacrifice.
We hope you will embrace our efforts to support our community and a worth-while charity. For more information, to REGISTER your vehicle or agency please visit our visit our website at www.hotpursuitcarshow.com or click on the button.

Thanks to the sponsorship of State Farm Insurance, NOBLE chapters were able to bring NOBLE’s Traffic Safety Program to many youth and adults over this summer at events here in Chicago, suburbs, and beyond, such as the National Night Out in Elgin, Illinois, and the Illinois Secretary of State’s Life Goes On Organ Donor Program for their 4th Annual “Wave the Waiting” 2016 Health Fair for Minority Donor Awareness Month at the Thompson Center in Chicago.
Department of Justice COPS Office Visits
"The Law & Your Community"
Chicago Public School Site
Representatives of the Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) Office of the Department of Justice visited one of our "The Law & Your Community" sites in the Chicago Public School system. The Austin Multiplex High School is one of eight Chicago Public School locations where our chapter is currently facilitating NOBLE's youth-law enforcement relation-building and law literacy program "The Law & Your Community."
While the COPS Office has already given its seal of approval of the program, the representatives wanted to observe the program "in the field" and got a glimpse of how powerful this program has been in our city and the potential it has to affect change across the nation.
Through this line of communication, the importance and effectiveness of "The Law & Your Community" has risen to the attention of President Obama's Task Force on 21st Century Policing which is monitoring the expansion of the program in the Chicago metropolitan area. The DOJ has given its stamp of approval to and support of the program.
Chapter Executive Board member and Hazelcrest Police Chief Mitchell R. Davis III presented at the Midwest Security and Police Conference/Expo at the Tinley Park Convention Center on August 16, 2016.
