Good Observation Skills
- A man with dementia is safely back with his family today thanks to an alert police officer, a mobile phone and a story on the Chicago Tribune Breaking News page.
Deering District Officer Dominick Catinella used his iPhone to check the Breaking News page on the Chicago Tribune while he was waiting for roll call to start before his evening shift in the district, and saw a story that was updated this morning with a photograph of 75-year-old James Gardner, Catinella said this afternoon.
Gardner had disappeared from his home in the Marquette Park neighborhood about 10 p.m. Wednesday, after recently moving from the West Side, and hadn’t been seen since then by his family.
It would be even more impressive if we were able to get photos like that on our mobile computers instead of relying on our personal phones. We could get pictures of wanted cars, real time pictures of wanted offenders, all sorts of stuff. Nice job in any event.
