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!

Chicago Metropolitan Chapter Members Attend
NOBLE's 2017 William R. Bracey Winter CEO Symposium in Seattle, WA
Bridging the Gap Between Community & Police"
The "Bridging the Gap Between Community & Police" Worship Service was a great success! Thank you to all who came to be part of this event! We hope that we, as a community, will continue this conversation and process of healing and strengthening of the trust and relationship between all facets of our city.
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.
ABJ Community Services presents "Bootstraps", a play loosely based on The Law and Your Community program! Please join us on March 24th at 3:30 pm as we immerse ourselves in the story of Jarod, a young community activist in Chicago, and witness the evolution of his views toward law enforcement. After the play, there will be a talkback with the writer/director Pastor Victoria C. Brady and the cast. Don't miss this!
To purchase tickets, call 773-209-4586
"Bootstraps" is made possible with the support of NOBLE Chicago Metropolitan Chapter and the Chicago Police Foundation.
