Aside from Halloween, October was best known this year in the City for some big-time sports moments — and some smaller ones. Whether supporting Chicago’s teams, helping keep fans safe or getting on the court themselves, officers played a role in all the fun and festivities.
     It’s not just the pros out having fun. A 24th District community policing officer jumped into the action during the Fall Classic pickleball tournament at Warren Park.

     Officers lined the entire 26-mile course for the Chicago Marathon’s return, including in the 15th District, where the scene lined up nicely for a photo of competi- tors as they crossed the 18-mile mark near Tay- lor and Throop streets.
Although the White Sox playoff run fell short, CPD officers kept a watchful eye when the series against the Houston Astros arrived on the South Side. A week earlier, the White Sox honored several of CPD’s heroes, including Officer Shontell Raven, who was wounded in a September shooting.
