SOAR’s day-to-day role, through the Safety and Well-Being Task Force, chaired by SOAR Director Bob Johnson, a civilian firefighter and former police officer, is to represent Streeterville residents by establishing and maintaining communications with these crime fighters. At least once a year, Johnson and the Task Force coordinate a public safety forum to introduce some of the community leaders engaged in the effort and provide an opportunity for residents to ask questions.

We are honored that Daniel O’Shea, the recently-appointed Commander of the Chicago Police 18th District, will be with us. Members of this year’s esteemed panel will make short presentations in advance of a question-and-answer session. Following is the list of panelists:
