97th Place between Main St. and Merrillville Road

Crown Point, IndianaJan 29, 20110 Comments

Crown Point Police’s notorious (name has been left out due to rules of this site) has declared his territory on the north side of town at 97th Place: anywhere between Main Street and Merrillville Road ("9 mile".) Known for a nasty attitude, a lazy eye and an eagerness to issue citations for the most minor infractions, he loves to sit anywhere along this stretch. He usually observes traffic here after dark on the nights near the end of the month, the time that the department scurries to meet its ticket quota. He sometimes sits in the parking lot of Eagle Park School on the north side of 97th; he also parks with his lights off on Arthur Place at the stop sign to catch anyone speeding or rolling through the intersection.

If you’re not already familiar with Officer Friendly, you should note that his vehicle is a white, unmarked Chevy Impala (the newer model, not the older) with a visible spotlight on the driver’s side. It also has hugcaps instead of rims (this is crucial because civilians with this model Impala will always have rims,) and a front license plate that says "Taking Care of Business," though sometimes can be switched up with a Chicago Bears plate. If you’re not paying close attention, you’ll wind up face to face with a real menace, and a jerk.
